December 2018

December 2
"Reality Therapy"
Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler
The book of Ruth deals with unimportant people and unimportant matters, but deals with them in such a way as to show that God is active in ordinary lives-like yours and mine. Ruth's story became an important part of the story of Jesus. Listening to God's work in her life can rescue us from dead end delusions and bring us into what is most real-a Jesus-centered reality.
(Ruth 1-2)

December 9
"Redeemer with a Capital R"
Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler
When people use the word "redeem" outside of religious context, they tend to use it in a commercial sense-redeeming points from purchases or casino tokens for cash. In the Bible, the word "redeem" is used in a family setting. In the story of Ruth, Boaz is a "kinsman redeemer," who points to Jesus, our capital-r-Redeemer. Jesus has done more than pay our points. He redeems by bringing us into his clan, his people, his household, that we might be with him forever.
(Ruth 3-4)

December 16
"In Anxious Times, Rejoice! "
Guest Speaker: Rev. Dr. Anthony (Tony) Cook
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. With anxiety on the rise, the Apostle Paul's call to "rejoice always" seems all but unobtainable. While there are many helpful ways to cope with society's increasing anxiety, Paul points us to a frequently overlooked source of joy and peace, God's grace in Christ.
(Philippians 4:4-7 )

December 23
"The King's Strength "
Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler
A true king's strength is seen, not in vaults and arsenals, but in the loyalty of his people. We celebrate the birth of the King who won the victory, not by taxing his subjects and killing his enemies, but by serving, loving and dying for them. By his resurrection, He destroyed the power of sin and lends us strength to become His loyal subjects.
(Luke 1:26-56 )

December 30
"A Long Good-Bye"
Guest Speaker: Dr. Dean Nadasdy
As the year come to a close, we likely have regrets and guilt. We can beat ourselves up over work left undone, but Jesus Christ has assured us that He is your hope. His grace is more than sufficient to take us into another year and give us peace.
(Luke 2:27-32)
