Trading Heaven for a Radio | Trinity 2
The good gifts we have from God always have the potential to become our gods. This is evident especially when they become our excuses for forsaking God's invitation to come to His great Supper. Sermon for Trinity 2 on Luke 14:16–24 by Rev. Jeff Hendrix
Sense & Sight vs. Word & Light | Trinity 1
Is anything more reliable than our senses, what we can see, touch, hear, taste, or even smell? Yes, and the answer may seem obvious, but challenging to accept: The Word of God. Yet, it is the only thing that endures forever. Sermon on Luke 16:19-31 by Rev. Jeff Hendrix
The Athanasian Creed | Trinity Sunday
What is the Athanasian Creed and why do we use it on Trinity Sunday? In place of today's sermon are a series of meditations on the Creed confessed on Trinity Sunday, the Athanasian Creed. In between we sing verses of Luther's hymn paraphrase of the Nicene Creed, "We All Believe in One True God."
Not As The World Gives | Pentecost + Confirmation
The peace and comfort that the world gives is based on what can be seen, felt, or experienced. This, as Pentecost shows, is very different than the peace that Jesus gives through the Holy Spirit. Sermon and Exordium based on John 14:23-31 + Acts 2 for Pentecost Sunday / Confirmation Sunday at Faith Lutheran Church, Oregon, WI.
An Ascended Perspective | Exaudi
Jesus' ascension gives us a new perspective on ourselves and on the world. It's not what you expect. Sermon on John 15:26-16:4 for Exaudi Sunday by Rev. Jeff Hendrix
The Word of God Generates Prayer | Easter 6
The habit of prayer is hard. And on top of that, we’ve been conditioned, by our rationalistic modern era, to only do what’s pragmatic. Prayer doesn’t seem pragmatic. I can fix all my problems on my own. And so we feel ignorant, foolish, or naive if we pray anywhere else but in church. So, to help us pray, Rev. Hendrix gives four things to know about prayer, in a sermon for Rogate Sunday on John 16:23–30
