Covetousness

November 4, 2018 • Larry Kroon • Luke 12:13-34

Covetousness is the greedy desire for more that never knows the freedom, peace, and joy of simply saying, “I have enough.” Sometimes it is driven by a sense of injustice. Other times is fueled by an ever expanding appetite for pleasure. Often it is the harried press of worry that keeps us grasping for more. Whatever the type of greed there is only one way to deal with it: listen to Jesus. This will be our goal today.

Proclamation

April 28, 2019 • Larry Kroon

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.
