What Does God Want?

October 6, 2015

What Does God Want? The Bible reveals what God wants from us. In this address to God’s people, Moses not only summarized their experience but also encapsulated what God wanted from them.

Sermon to the Vipers

October 14, 2015

October 17, 2015

Lift Up Your Heads

October 22, 2015

Lift Up Your Heads In one of his parables, philosopher Soren Kierkegaard wrote, “It happened that a fire broke out backstage in a theater. The clown came out to inform the public.
