Last July, I gave my first sermon for a Community of Christ congregation, preaching on the Parable of the Samaritan. I guess I didn’t do too badly, because their pastor reached out in December to ask me to give another sermon this month. On January 21st, I’ll be preaching on Matthew 4:1-11, covering the Temptation of Jesus. This has been a fun passage to revisit and see with new eyes. I don’t know exactly what I’m going to say just yet, but I’ve got plenty of notes and ideas and am looking forward to nailing things down over the next week and a half.
Since the links for the YouTube live events are now up, I thought I’d share them in a post; at the very least, it will serve as motivation to get my act together!I’ll be preaching during the regular 12pm Eastern service:
Beyond the Walls also does Late Edition service for people in other time zones (or with other schedules), so my sermon will be rebroadcast as part of that at 6pm Eastern:
These YouTube embeds will go live at the relevant times—and then turn into standard videos after each service is done.
