Christ Church Sermons from December 2018

A Fast Mass

The Sunday after Christmas is a “light” Sunday – one to let the worship wash over you and do its thing to shape your heart. A poem by Irish poet Paul Durcan included about the beauty and wonder of a “fast mass.”

Participating in the Gospel

In this Christmas before Christmas service, we read the nativity Gospel, Luke 2:1-20, with the congregation divided into groups to speak different parts. The sermon elaborates on how participating in the Gospel reading this way reminds us that we participate in God’s grand story of humanity each day.

When it all comes together

In the introduction to John the Baptist, we see the past, present, and future of God’s work come together.  It is a moment that encourages us to have faith today that God who has begun a good work in us will see it to completion, even when it doesn’t look that way.
