The written sermon follows below. But seriously, the preached word is meant to be heard. Give it a listen. (Plus, what was written and what gets preached are often 2 entirely different things!)

Go Settle

Jeremiah 29:1-14
1 These are the words of the letter that the prophet Jeremiah sent from Jerusalem to the remaining elders among the exiles, and to the priests, the prophets, and all the people, whom Nebuchadnezzar had taken into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon.

4 Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon: 5 Build houses and live in them; plant gardens and eat what they produce. 6 Take wives and have sons and daughters; take wives for your sons, and give your daughters in marriage, that they may bear sons and daughters; multiply there, and do not decrease. 7 But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare. 8 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Do not let the prophets and the diviners who are among you deceive you, and do not listen to the dreams that they dream, 9 for it is a lie that they are prophesying to you in my name; I did not send them, says the Lord. 10 For thus says the Lord: Only when Babylon’s seventy years are completed will I visit you, and I will fulfill to you my promise and bring you back to this place. 11 For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. 12 Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. 13 When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart, 14 I will let you find me, says the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.

Go (W)Holy!

1 Kings 5:1-5; 8:1-13  October 29, 2017 – The Reformation

singing “As soon as the coin in the coffer rings/The soul from Purgatory springs.” Imagine this little jingle greeting you during worship, in place of communion. We take a second offering, promising that whatever is placed in the offering plate this time will save you from eternal damnation. And if you put in even more, it can save your loved ones who have already died who may not have been forgiven and are languishing in purgatory. Never mind the fact that we’ll build a big old church building with all the money you share so that everyone in Hutchinson will know this is where God lives. [Read more…]
