What has happened to love?
Do we see that in American culture today?

More often, we see anger, vitriol, even hatred between opposing parties, often across political lines. But in Paul's wonderful love poem in 1 Corinthians 13, we find just the prescription an often loveless modern society needs, because llove – it's the greatest!

Full of wonderful true stories, examples from daily life, and thought-provoking questions, this book makes great sermon material, especially for weddings; devotional reading; or small group study for Christians seeking a better understanding of this much used but not fully comprehended concept of love.

Cycle C Sermons for Lent and Easter Based on the Gospel Texts
Schuyler Rhodes

Shouting Joy to the Storm reminds us that, just as the Father partnered with the Son to bring him through the storm of Calvary, so he will bring us through our storms. We are not in this for a mere lifetime. We are in it for the long haul.

"They shall no more be a prey to the nations, nor shall the beasts of the land devour them. They shall dwell securely, and none shall make them afraid (Ezekiel 34:28, ESV)."

Cycle C Sermons Based on Second Lessons for Lent and Easter
Mark Ellingsen
"Go against the grain."

This is what Mark Ellingsen wants your church to hear in A Rebellious Faith. It isn't merely odd or contradictory in the eyes of the world to live a Christian life. It is offensive.

To go against the grain – by discounting our accomplishments, carrying no shame in the light of grace, considering no one outside of God's love – is to sometimes make people who worship hard work, the quest for perfection and exceptionalism deeply uncomfortable.

And that is a very good thing.

Ellingsen begins with the irrevocable truth that the ashes we put on our living bodies at the beginning of the Lenten season represent the death we all deserve. From there, he leads your congregation through the brazenly offensive, un-American ideas presented in the New Testament.

Confession does not shame and isolate us, it liberates us. Bearing the cross of our sin is not a burden, but a blessing in the knowledge the Lord has paid the ultimate price for our sin. The Resurrection does not make anyone exceptional. It unites us all whether or not we are ready to enter Heaven together.

A Rebellious Faith reminds us that the war is already won, and we are to live as brave sinners whose Savior cannot be overcome.

Cycle C Sermons Based on Second Lessons for Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany
Mary Austin
These sermons use the words and actions of Paul to call out these false gods, to reveal our idolatry and its cause: our longing for the true source of peace. Once we have determined the cause of our love/hate relationship with the Christmas season, we can begin to pursue the counter-cultural cure.

Meeting God at the Mallting God at the Mall shows us there is no obstacle too great to prevent us from finding our way back to the peace we can find only in our loving Savior.
