Sermons on “Redemption”

Traditional Service, “Do We Want a King?”

Do we even want Christ to be King? Do we want him to reign from a cross? What made the thief crucified next to Jesus believe? Why do these questions go together?

Uptown Service, “Be Ruth and See Ruth”

While there is much we can learn from a Sunday School type reading of the Book of Ruth that urges us to strive to “be Ruth”; there is also much we can garner from a mature reading which invites us to “see Ruth” and the Ruths who live among us. When we delve deeply into the layers of complexity in this ancient text we can emerge with a way to both ‘be Ruth’ and to “see Ruth”. That enriches us and help move us forward on our journey through the Old Testament towards grace.
