More Than Bread

Speaker: Jon Hauerwas

More Than Bread – Genesis 2 and 3 and Matthew 4:1-11 According to Matthew, Jesus begins his earthly ministry in the wilderness.

Well Pleased

Speaker: Jon Hauerwas

Well Pleased – Exodus 24:12-18 and Matthew 17:1-9 When something is new, it feels more like a choice. A child participating in a new sport wonders if it’s really for her. She won’t know, we say, until she experiences it for herself. A couple out on a first date is exploring the […]

Cleansed – Isaiah 42:1-7 and Matthew 3:13-17 Following the birth of our Lord at Christmas, the shepherds, the magi, the angels, and even King Herod himself confirmed what Jesus’ parents already knew – that theirs was no ordinary child. Fast-forward 12 years and we learn about Jesus as a boy […]

Subversive Faith

Speaker: Jon Hauerwas

Subversive Faith – Colossians 3:12-17 and Luke 2:41-52  “For whatever reasons, neither Luke nor Matthew carried the implications of the virgin birth into the remainder of their Gospels, nor did the early church include those stories in the preaching of the gospel.” [1] Rather, Luke’s narrative unfolds normally, free of miracles, […]
