Sermon on Luke 9:51-62, for the 6th Sunday after Pentecost, about the cost of discipleship and Jesus' journey to the cross. How does Jesus face rejection? How does the Gospel respond? What are the hindrances and distractions for discipleship? How can one be fit for the kingdom of God?
Sermon on Luke 8:26-39, for the 5th Sunday after Pentecost, about Jesus healing the demon possessed man in the region of the Gerasenes. What were the signs of his demon possession, and how was he restored? By what power and authority did Jesus do it? What do we learn from the response of the demons, and also from the fear of the people? What has Jesus done for us, and how does Jesus now use us in our daily lives?
Sermon on Luke 7:36-50, for the 4th Sunday after Pentecost, about the meal where Jesus was hosted by Simon the Pharisee, and the woman from the city washes the feet of Jesus with her tears and her hair, and how Jesus speaks to Simon about love and forgiveness and hospitality. What does this teach us about how we look at others? At ourselves? How do we get to see through the "eyes of Jesus"?
Sermon on Luke 7:11-17, for the 3rd Sunday after Pentecost, about the miracle of Jesus raising the son of the Widow of Nain. How does Jesus enter into our grief? What comfort does He bring, and where and when can we find Him? What comfort does Jesus bring at the funeral of a Christian? What does it mean that God "visited" His people?
