For this week’s sermon, Pastor Daniel shares a powerful reflection by Chad Bird of 1517.org on Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son.

Today is the third Sunday in Lent, and today’s sermon looks at the themes and purpose of this season. In Lent, we are called to repent and return to the Lord our God, to recognize and turn away from our sin, and to turn instead towards God’s mercy and forgiveness. The text of this sermon is available at https://danielflucke.com/lenten-repentance/.

On this second Sunday in Lent, we’re exploring what it means to have faith through the lens of Abram’s story in Genesis 15:1-12, 17-18. Abraham is one of the greatest examples of faith in the Bible, but in this story, even he wrestles with doubt and questions—what an encouragement for us! Text at https://danielflucke.com/abram-faith-questions.

Today is the first Sunday in Lent, and we’re looking at Luke’s account of Jesus being tempted in the wilderness, the paradoxes of faith, and the good news that Jesus chooses to deny the temptations of earthly glory and empty himself for our sake. The text of this sermon is available at https://danielflucke.com/temptation-paradox/.
