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.

Sermons for Pentecost Sunday Through Proper 14 Based On the Gospel Texts For Cycle A
Tom M. Garrison
The Word in Other Words presents a beautiful collection of thoughts and experiences, ushering the reader into a closer examination of their walk with God. Too often we forget that the significance of Easter is its ability to deliver a future, saving us from the past and the present with its offer of redemptive hope. As Reverend Dr. Tom Garrison urges the Christ follower to surrender despair and exchange it for hope, he boldly calls us to pursue lives filled with gratitude, risk, and faithfulness -- lives centered on a future that is only possible because of the cross and an empty grave. The Word in Other Words confidently encourages us to follow Jesus, reminding us that he is the only one who can carry our burdens and mend our brokenness.
