A Perfectly Good Hatred — Ruined!

What do you see when you look at another person? An obstacle? An annoyance? When God sent Jonah to the Ninevites, Jonah never bothered to care about the people. What is our call from God to others? Jonah 3:1-4:1, Psalm 62:5-12, Mark 1:14-20.

Come and See…

How many times have you been told how important this is? How many times has it been made clear what you should share? This Sunday, we will think about what we share when we share our faith. We don’t need to be doctors of doctrine, or paragons of morality. We just need to tell our story, and […]

The Second Coming of Christ

As much as some Christians talk about the Second Coming of Christ, it sounds like they are expecting a combination party, fancy dinner and awards ceremony. If they are, they have been watch too much “Christian” TV and not reading the Bible! As part of our First Advent/Second Advent series, we will look this Sunday […]

It’s Simple

How many times have we thought about it – there are so many more needs than it seems we have resources? Your mailbox is full of solicitations from charities, the TV is filled with heart-tugging pictures of big-eyed sick children, limping veterans, and mistreated puppies and kittens. Every internet search is accompanied by ads for […]

Have We Stopped Watching?

This week, our service included music food and fellowship all in one amazing service. The service included communion which we was receive around the tables – as the early church did. Robert will begin an Advent series of sermons looking at the significance of the second coming of Christ – as Jesus himself saw it.  […]

Honor is something we think of as singular…

Honor is something we think of as singular – a medal given to one person at a special ceremony, or a title bestowed on an especially accomplished individual. We are always looking for the exceptional, the talented and the fortunate to boost them even higher than they already are. However, in the world of the […]

E Pluribus Unum

The fact that the people of Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Russia, Afghanistan and Ethiopia are our brothers and sisters is not obvious. People kill each other by the thousands and do not see themselves as brothers and sisters. If we want to be real peace-makers, national security cannot be our primary concern. Our primary concern […]

Who Doesn’t Like Grace?

Who doesn’t like grace! Well, maybe more of us than we realize. In fact, our text for this Sunday focuses on how hard grace can be, not just to accept, but to like. Psalm 34:1-10 and Matthew 20:1-16. http://newhanoverpres.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/24_Sep.m4a

Your Rights End Where Mine Begin!

Sorry this post is a day late, I’ve been working on a new way to publish the audio track. Maybe you have heard someone say this – “Your rights end where mine begin!” In fact, we very carefully calculate how our rights are recognized and respected. However, what does all this talk about “rights” mean […]
