Sermons on “Jesus”

Fr. Chris Yoder - January 29, 2017

Uptown Service, “A Strange Invitation”

To invite others to church is to invite them to discover new life in the company of Christ crucified.

The Rev. Canon Victor Lee Austin, Ph.D.

Traditional Service, “Naming and Obedience”

The year begins with a story of obedience, but what is obedience, really? It is not to submit to another’s will, but to hear, to understand, and to act accordingly. The almost unbelievable truth is that God wants to share his mind with us.

Fr. Thomas Kincaid

Traditional Service, “Who are you and why are you here?”

In a convoluted Gospel text, two questions emerge: Who is Jesus? And why are his followers there listening? These two questions are, at their core, about power. What power do we need to show up in our lives?

The Rev. Canon Victor Lee Austin, Ph.D.

Traditional Service, “The Ins and Outs of Lions’ Dens”

The figure of Daniel gives us encouragement to work hard in the world, while reminding us that there are always dangers and we must remember that our first allegiance is to God. God vindicated Daniel, even as he later vindicated Jesus, raising him from the pit of death, and even as, please God, he will someday raise us.
