    Sermon Notebook: Death Defeated #4--Grieving with Hope

    Sermon Notebook: Death Defeated #4--Grieving with Hope

    Death is a truly universal aspect of the human experience. Regardless of who we are, we all have to reckon with the reality of death. The Bible gives us resources for understanding and dealing with this fact of human existence. Coming to terms with death unavoidably involves coming to terms with grief. Not only will we face grief at the prospect of our own death, but also we all must face grief because of the deaths of those whom we love. How are the followers of Jesus to grieve? That’s the topic of this episode. A sermon preached at Venice Presbyterian Church in suburban Pittsburgh, PA on March 26, 2017.

    Living the Resurrection Life #22: Studies in Colossians 3 (A Shortpod)

    Living the Resurrection Life #22: Studies in Colossians 3 (A Shortpod)

    Everything we do, Paul tells us, we should do "in the name of the Lord Jesus." In this video, I explore the meaning of doing something in the name of someone else. It is a call to be that person's representative. What does it mean to be Jesus' representatives in the world? It means love--a genuine concern for the well-being of the other. When we love others, we embody the Lord Jesus in our troubled world. Produced October 16, 2020.

    Living the Resurrection Life #21: Studies in Colossians 3 (Shortpod)

    Paul here urges us to sing to God with our whole being as one people together. Singing is a gift from God that is intended to help us focus our whole selves on God alone. This gift of singing our worship to God is a thing that we are to do together. In this video, I reflect on the right and wrong ways to do that and encourage us all to allow singing to draw us deeper together into love for God. Produced September 25, 2020
