Jesus Christ calls us to be a joyful community that celebrates God's love, transforms lives, and is a force for justice in the world.

Sermons by Bart Smith (Page 2)

Out of One, many

This image of the church as the body of Christ runs far deeper than a metaphor for teamwork. It tells us about the kind of community God shapes, and that is a community in which differences are not erased, but embraced and transcended for the sake of God’s purposes in the world.

Finding Our Way

The message at the heart of Epiphany is that God shows up. And where does God show up? In a podunk village, among a peasant family, in the company of roughneck shepherds and smelly livestock, and not in Herod’s palace. In a manger, not on a throne.

Christmas according to John

What all of that darkness and light imagery points to is this: Jesus reveals God to believers and to the world in a unique, definitive way. Jesus is the spiritual light that helps us to see clearly who God is and who we are.
