This weekend will be characterized by great celebrations of our independence as a nation and of the freedoms we enjoy as citizens of this country. There will likely be fireworks, family gatherings, grilled meat and watermelon slices, and red, white & blue everywhere! With good food and fun, we will commemorate that, as Americans, we can basically go where we want, consume what we like, do what we love, and pursue relationships with people of our choosing. Our founding documents assure us the opportunities of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Along with our other rights, we are free to worship and practice faith as we feel called—thanks be to God.
Therefore, this weekend is also a great opportunity for us to reflect on the unique freedom that is ours in Christ. Our old friend Martin Luther wrote a treatise way back in 1520 called On Christian Liberty, or The Freedom of a Christian (depending on who is doing the translating). The most quoted line of this paper is this:
A Christian is a perfectly free lord of all, subject to none.
A Christian is a perfectly dutiful servant of all, subject to all. read more…
Hi everybody! As you may have noticed, our streaming platform was on the blink this weekend. Therefore, despite our best efforts, the live stream did not record, and we do not have the service archived for your viewing. While we sincerely hope this is fixed by next weekend, it is beyond our control–so we’re just praying! In the meantime, I’m posting here the manuscript from my sermon on Sunday. Reading it won’t be quite the same, but I hope you can still hear the call to mission that we receive from Jesus in Matthew 10. Blessings! ~Pastor Brandy
