There is a battle raging in the wilderness. The temptation of Jesus in our Gospel reading this morning is not merely an assessment of Jesus’ self-control or his spiritual discipline; it is, in fact, the beginning of a war for the allegiance of humankind.

Simply keeping it together is a daily task, and an act of kindness can appear as a kind of revolution. […]

Good morning. When a layperson is invited to preach, I think the congregation expects two things: announce the big idea up front, and get to the point quickly. So, first, the big idea. As 1st Corinthians states, and as you can read throughout the New Testament, a big idea is that we have, each of […]
