Talents – 23rd Sunday after Trinity, November 19, 2017

November 20, 2017
20 Nov 2017

Scriptures: Zephaniah 1:7,12-18; Psalms 90:1-12; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-10; Matthew 25:14-30

In our annual “giving sermon”, we continue to look at Jesus’ last parables in the gospel of Matthew.  The well-known parable of the Talents demonstrates to us that the things we have are not ours, the God is not “fair” in his giving of gifts, and that the safe choice is not always safe.  The implications of these truths can drastically shape our view on how use our time and resources for the sake of the kingdom.

Be Prepared – 22nd Sunday after Trinity, November 12, 2017

November 13, 2017
13 Nov 2017

Scriptures: Amos 5:18-24; Psalm 70; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Mathewt 25:1-13

In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus uses His last teaching session before He is betrayed to urge the disciples to be prepared for His return.  When they ask Him what the signs will be, He refuses to give them an answer, but rather uses a series of parables to instruct them in living a prepared life.  So what does preparation for the end of the world look like?
