When the Lamb opened...

Sermon on Sep 11, 2016

Revelation 6:1-8:5

When I was in art school I had a friend whose specialty was tapestry and her studio was almost completely filled with an enormous loom on which she wove intricate works of art from loose threads. Now the way to really appreciate a tapestry-like that is not to pick one thread and then begin to unravel it until you see how it intersects with every other thread in...

Richard Bewes, in his brilliant little commentary on the book of Revelation, tells the story of a trip he made to Sweden.

Behold, A Throne

Sermon on Sep 25, 2016

Revelation 11
