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.  […]

Christ the King Sunday

This Sunday was the last of the church year and it is called Christ the King Sunday. Recognizing the supremacy of Christ over all things, this Sunday was an opportunity for all Christians to reflect on Christ’s redeeming love and effective work of behalf of all humanity. http://newhanoverpres.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/26_Nov.m4a

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!

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 when it comes to God’s Kingdom and God’s people. This Sunday we will consider Matthew 18:21-35 and Romans 14:1-12 as we […]

So What Happens When The Wind Blows?

So, what happens when the winds blow, the waters rise and you begin the walk into the Valley of the Shadow? Is it everyone for themselves? Is everything that considers others out the window when the fight to survive comes, whether the threat is from rising storm surge or the weight of daily stress? This Sunday, we […]

Who Belongs?

Who Belongs? That is the question of the hour in the United States right now and certainly in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The passage we are looking at this Sunday – Romans 11:13-24 – answers this question for us… and makes us think! https://u78016438.dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/78016438/20_Aug_09.48.37.wav

This one thing — Changes EVERYTHING!

Just north of the corner of Chamberlayne and Westwood Avenues is the library of Union Presbyterian Seminary. This library, dedicated to the study of the Christian faith now has well over 350,000 volumes. Each year, thousands more books are published in the quest to understand this faith, often with contradictory conclusions. Yet, all this learning, […]

Do we live in a time of scarcity?

For us, living where we do, to ask that question is ludicrous. We live in a place that is a constant festival of riches and even excess. We worry about the status of our 401K and making our house payment. Rare is the person in our midst who worries about food or a place to […]
