Traditional Service, “Creed or Chaos”

The Christian faith cannot be shrunk down to a set of moral principles. Jesus said, “I am the truth,” so in him the message and the messenger are one. Creeds are like the score to a Bach cantata: they free us to grow closer to God together.

Traditional Service, “A Sophisticated Idolatry”

Idolatry is not something that people did millennia ago, but something we still do today. We are just more sophisticated about it. Idols however give us broken promises. But the true God gives us something better—his Son’s broken body.


Traditional Service, “Remember Lot’s Wife”

In this sermon on the power of decision, Bishop Burton observes that it is not the strength of your faith but the object of your faith that actually saves you.


Traditional Service, “He who believes in Jesus has eternal life.”

As the Jews grumble against Jesus because of his ancestry, Jesus speaks of the bread of life. He speaks about the spiritual hunger we all have that affects our lives. Jesus comes to bring the Bread of Life that will give us abundant life and salvation.
