Being lost is not fun. It leaves us confused, maybe even scared. On this particular account, the disciples are out in the sea and they’re not exactly lost - they know the sea - but they are definitely off course. But they’re not just physically off course, as we’ll look at in the passage this morning, they are spiritually off course. But what we’re going to look at...

Good morning and happy New Year. I trust you don’t think it’s too premature for me to go ahead and wish you a happy New Year. After all, we’re only about twelve hours out from it becoming 2018. It’s sort of hard to believe that another year has come and gone and we’re about to start another year in just a matter of hours. Whenever New Year comes...

My wife, Wendy, recently pointed me to an interview done several years ago with now the late American author, Pat Conroy.

If you would, open up your Bibles to Colossians chapter 3.  We have some Bibles in the back of the room if you need one of those; help yourself.  Colossians chapter 3.  Well obviously we must not have advertised as well this week as we did last week for Tim Keller or else I’m sure the crowd would have been just the same!  Not that my feelings are...

Scandalous Grace: Jesus' Meals with Sinners

If you would, either open your Bibles or look on that sheet that’s on the back table and we’re going to turn to Luke 19.  And we’re going to look at the first ten verses of Luke 19.  As you’re turning there, let me just set the stage for you a little bit.  Jesus is in Jericho.  He’s about an eight hour walk away from Jerusalem, so just...

“Raised with Christ” Colossians 3:1-5

The Reverend Mr. Ralph S. Kelley

If you would, open your Bibles to Colossians, Colossians chapter 3. We’re taking a break from our study in Hebrews while Dr. Duncan is away and when he returns we’ll pick up that study again. Today we're going to give our attention to Colossians chapter 3. Before we read it...
