Repentance and Readiness

November 11, 2018 • Larry Kroon • Luke 12:35-13:9

As Jesus neared the end of his final journey to Jerusalem, crowds increased and reactions intensified. In the press of those final months, two themes repeatedly emerged in his teaching: repentance and readiness. Both of these themes are grounded in the reality that after his death Jesus would rise from the dead and will one day return to judge and rule over all. Today we hear these themes as he taught them.

Proclamation

Luke’s Gospel tells the story of Jesus. Incarnation, Crucifixion, Resurrection, and finally Ascension. That sequence raises a natural question for us:“What happens now?” Jesus answers that question in our scripture reading today: Proclamation.

Resurrection

April 21, 2019 • Larry Kroon

The Christian witness is simple. It is foundational. It is defendable. And it is, above all, Good News. This Resurrection Sunday we gather to give voice to that witness as God’s People holding to God’s Word, filled by God’s Spirit. “The Lord has risen indeed!”

Remember

April 14, 2019 • Larry Kroon

We have spent two school years working our way through the Gospel of Luke as a congregation on Sunday mornings. With this Easter season we now come to the end: crucifixion, resurrection, mission. Today we look at how best to remember it all in a heart-shaping and life-forming way.
