The Way To Easter
The Way To Easter - 3/25/2018 - Nathan Malone
The homily for this Palm Sunday will explore what Jesus did for us on the Cross. Someone has said “The Cross was not only the way Jesus died; it was the way he lived.”
Sacrifice? Really? - 3/18/2018 - Nathan Malone
The core of Jesus’ life and ministry was about sacrifice. In this passage, he makes it clear that making sacrifices is at the core of being his disciples. We will share inspirational stories of sacrifice that people make all around us.
The Many Faces Of Betrayal - 3/11/2018 - Nathan Malone
Jesus was betrayed by many different people, including those closest to him. We will explore how we betray God and others as well as ways we also are betrayed.
Your Choice. You Choose. - 3/4/2018 - Nathan Malone
Jesus has come to that time when he must make the decision about whether he is going forward with the mission given to him. And that decision is his alone. We are not alone. God is with us. We have other people around us who journey with us. We draw strength and wisdom from them. However, there come those times when we have personal decisions to make.
Square Jaws and Focused Eyes - 2/25/2018 - Nathan Malone
Luke 9:51 has been called the “turning point” of this Gospel. Jesus now realizes that he has to go to Jerusalem and is determined to do so. Along the way, he lets his disciples know what is going to happen, but they do not understand. There are times in our lives when we must make tough decisions that turn our life more fully in line with God’s mission.
The Appeal Of Temptation - 2/18/2018 - Nathan Malone
Jesus is tempted with options of how he will live out his ministry. We will explore what it means to be tempted, including the fact that we are sometimes tempted to do good (as a way of avoiding doing what we are called to do or what is best).
