Easter 2018 • April 1, 2018 • Brian Sauvé

Two problems you and I share: 1. Guilt: We're gossips and liars, cheats and adulterers. We're coveters and thieves, perverters of justice. We're widow-neglecters and poverty ignorers. We're guilty sinners, and we know it to the last man. 2. Death: We're born in cursed bodies, hurtling towards the grave. We all have a coffin in our futures somewhere, near or far—and there is nothing we can do about that. No money can buy death off. No pleading can loose its grip. But Jesus cracked the earth and strode out of that grave in glory, death underfoot. But Jesus ripped up the record of our guilt. Death and guilt have been swallowed up by Christ's victorious resurrection!

Christmas & The Apocalypse

Revelation 12:1–10 • December 24, 2017 • Brian Sauvé

A Christmas sermon from the book of Revelation? What about mangers and wise men and frankincense and myrrh? What about silent nights and angels singing and shepherds waiting? Here's the thing: Christmas is anything but kitsch. No, Christmas is war—war on sin and the serpent, war on death and dark. Let the Apostle John scrape the film of familiarity from your eyes and show you what it really means that the virgin-born Son of God was born in Bethlehem on Christmas night.
