Sermon on Dec 3, 2017

Matthew 1:1-17

Christmas is a time for family. When we were kids, each Christmas in my family home, my brother and I would get up insufferably early. We usually would have to be sent back to bed two or three times before we were finally allowed out of our rooms. And then we’d all go downstairs and have breakfast. We were not allowed to touch the presents under the tree...

Songs of Christmas

Sermon on Dec 12, 2004

Matthew 1:18-25

Turn with me now in the Scriptures to Matthew, chapter one, and we're going to read verses 18 through 25; and if you can be ambidextrous this morning, have open before you the hymn, the carol that the choir sang so beautifully (but in slightly different words to the words the choir was singing), so we need the words, not in the bulletin, but in the hymnbook, of...

Sermon on Dec 2, 2018

Matthew 1:18-25

So what's in a name? A whole lot as it turns out. Names actually get me in trouble around here all the time. Let me give you an example. A few Sundays ago, I was preaching and I wanted to emphasize the fact that a previous generation here in our church has left a legacy for a new generation to follow. And so I spoke about the passing...

Sermon on Dec 9, 2018

Matthew 1:18-25

Well, be that as it may, when news reached Joseph that Mary, his fiancee, was pregnant, there really was no possibility that the Bethlehem & District Hospital had made a mistake that day. In fact, poor Joseph was facing a nightmare scenario, wasn't he? In those days and in that culture, betrothal was about as serious and as inviolable as marriage itself, which is why verse 19 makes...
