RECTOR'S 20/20 VISION SERMON SERIES

On Outreach

"Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you have sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world." (John 17:17-18).  These are words that Jesus spoke intimately and directly to his Father in heaven through prayer, or conversation. In all that Jesus did, he turned to God for direction and guidance, and always that guidance sent Jesus back out into the world to continue developing relationships with God's people, His children, who were waiting, whether they knew it or not, to hear the Good News - the truth - that they were loved.

On Stewardship

From the very beginning, God placed His creation in the hands of human beings and He tasked all of us, each and every one of us, to consider and remember, that all of creation was His first, and it is being shared with us, simply because God loves us. God placed men and women, human beings all, with the responsibility of taking care of God's Creation, and at the risk of losing that creation, we can't afford to refuse God the work of taking on that stewardship.

On Worship

"The world will always, consciously or unconsciously, judge what the Church says by what it is.  They will interpret the printed epistle by the living epistle". (Newbigin)

On Education

As with all things in life, there is a rhythm, an ebb and flow to the way we live our lives, the way we mature and grow, how we move onward into the future of who we are and who we are becoming.

On Fellowship

"The Church is the pilgrim people of God.  it is on the move - hastening to the ends of the earth to beseech all [people] to be reconciled to God, and hastening to the end of time to meet the Lord who will gather all into one.  Therefore the nature of the Church is never to be finally defined in static terms, but only in terms of that to which it is going ... The Church is not to be defined by what it is, but by that End to which it moves". (Newbigin)
