Please turn with me in your copy of God’s Word to the gospel of Matthew, chapter 11 verses 25 to 30. That can be found on the pew Bible page 816 for those using that. It’s been just over a year since I last preached here. Thank you all, again, for your support of Belhaven RUF, your support of our family. Thank you that more and more this...

God Reigns

Please open your Bibles to Exodus chapter 20. If you’re using a church Bible, you’ll find it on page 61. In a few moments we will read together the words of the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20:1-17. We’ve come this morning to the ninth commandment, “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” Of all the commandments, I’m not sure there’s one of them more frequently broken...

Behold, A Throne

Revelation is probably the most neglected New Testament book, I suspect for at least two reasons. First, it is frankly complex and mysterious, isn’t it, full of strange metaphors, bizarre beasts; symbolic numbers laden with rich allusions to the Old Testament and to its imagery. And quite often as a result to the casual reader in 2016, let’s be honest, it can be very difficult to understand. We...

Thank you very much, David. I always feel so much love and gratitude to be back in this wonderful congregation. My wife and I and five children spent some of our best years here and we brought up the children in worship here three times a week and then at Presbyterian Day School and what a benefit and a blessing it has been in their lives...

The Word Became Flesh

Well, it’s almost here!  For some of you the excitement is at fever pitch; for others of you you’re holding on until the day after.  There’s still a lot of cooking and a lot of preparation and in-laws are descending upon you and yet it’s almost here, with all the joys that it brings.  You’ve watched the piles of presents under the tree grow over the last few...

The Word Became Flesh

This morning we are taking a short break from our ongoing studies in the book of Exodus to capitalize on the opportunity afforded by the Advent season and together to think in a sustained and concentrated way about the significance of the first coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  And this year, our thinking will be directed by the prologue to the gospel according to John. ...
