  • SERMON:  When Outcomes Are Not Guaranteed by Rev. Dr. Harold
    SERMON: When Outcomes Are Not Guaranteed by Rev. Dr. Harold WHEN OUTCOMES ARE NOT GUARANTEED 2 Kings 5: 1 – 14 Series on Elijah-Elijah #3 “But Naaman became furious, and went away and said, ’Indeed, I said to myself, He will surely come out to me, and stand and call on the Lord his God, and eave his hand over the place, and heal the leprosy.’” When you think about your life, what matters most to you. Anticipated outcomes or the journey leading to the outcome? What is most important to you, your arrival to your desired destination or the journey the led to your arrival? Well, I guess we each might have differing answers based upon what matters most to us. Some of our Elders of Session and church members might recall that many years, possibly 2003-4, we entered into a season of Strategic Planning that was led by our good friend Rev. Dr. Kikanza Nuri-Robins. FOR THE FULL SERMON, VISIT: http://inglewoodfirstpres.org/audio-sermons

    SERMON: It's in Your Hands by Rev Dr. Harold E. Kidd IT’S IN YOUR HANDS 2 Kings 2: 1 – 15 Series on Elijah #2 “And so it was, when they had crossed over, that Elijah said to Elisha, “Ask! What may I do for you, before I am taken away from you? Elisha said, “Please let a double portion of your Spirit upon me.” At last Sunday’s Session meeting in reviewing a new proposed contract for one of our staff we talked about Succession. Of how important it is to always be identifying, nurturing and mentoring others to succeed us, because the realities are that people go and come, and for a variety of reasons, but congregations are perpetual. This same reality is true generationally for every family, institution, and place of employment. So, we should always be on the lookout for those ofwho have the potential, or the desire to succeed us. It would be a tragic mistake to . . .

  • SERMON - A REVERSAL OF FORTUNE by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd
    SERMON - A REVERSAL OF FORTUNE by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd Palm Sunday April 14, 2019 Luke 19: 28 – 44, Philippians 2: 1 – 11 A REVERSAL OF FORTUNE “And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” - Philippians 2:8 On this Palm Sunday, lets us consider why we use two terms in describing the final week in the life of Jesus?  And how do the events in the life of Jesus during His final week in Jerusalem, prior to His crucifixion, reveal a reversal of fortune?

  • Sermon:  The Longer Way by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd
    Sermon: The Longer Way by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd Sermon Series: Lessons From The Wilderness #2 Exodus 13: 17 – 22 Preached by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd THE LONGER WAY “Then it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God did not lead them by way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, ‘Lest perhaps the people change their minds when they see war, and return to Egypt.” Last week we began a Lenten Series entitled Lessons From The Wilderness. In today’s message we want to consider how God often guides us. Which many times is not by the direct route, or by the shortest distance, but so often by The Longer Way. And we wonder, Lord, what’s taking you so long? The text before us is focused on God’s leading of His people shortly after their departure from Egypt.

  • Sermon: A Mountain Top Experience by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd
    Sermon: A Mountain Top Experience by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd March 3, 2019 Exodus 34: 29 – 35 Series: Life In The Wilderness#1 Preached by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd A MOUNTAIN TOP EXPERIENCE "Then Moses would put the veil on his face again, until he went in to speak with Him (God)." Exodus 34: 35 Have you ever noticed that mountains play a significant role in God's message of Salvation? The scriptures declare that God hath made mountains to magnify himself. Declares the Psalmist in Psalm 148, "Praise ye the Lord, you mountains and hills". Mt. Sinai in Exodus 18 is described as the Mountain of God. Sinai was God's Holy dwelling place among his people. He said to Israel upon their liberation from Egypt, "And you shall worship me on this mountain." Mountains speak to us of God's stability and His eternal continuance. (Deut. 33:15). Amen. There is something about spending time in the presence of the Lord that conveys to others, we've been with God. Like Moses, when we worship God in that private place, where it’s just God and us, others will be able to tell that we've been with God. Because God will leave some evidence of his presence, in us and upon us that we have been with Him. Amen. Firstly, the idea of a veil holds two meanings for Paul. For those who have not yet come to Christ, a veil covers their spiritual eyes that keep . . .

  • SERMON: Blessed In Our Discomfort by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd
    SERMON: Blessed In Our Discomfort by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd Sunday, February 17, 2019 Sermon Series: Rediscovering the Ministry of Jesus #3 Luke 6: 17 – 26 Preached by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd BLESSED IN OUR DISCOMFORT “Then He lifted up His eye toward His Disciples, and said: Blessed are you poor For yours is the kingdom of God….” Luke 6: 20 One of the life lessons we learn in this journey of life related to our relationship with God and the ways of God, is that so often it's hard to figure God out. Just when we thought we had Him, knew all about Him, had God pigeon hold if you will, put God in a box, God moves in a way to show us and remind us that His ways are past finding out. His ways sometimes contradict logic. His ways sometimes contradict human reasoning. His ways always contradict the ways of this world. Amen. - For the full sermon visit: http://inglewoodfirstpres.org/audio-sermon/blessed-in-our-discomfort-luke-6

  •  SERMON: Counting the Cost by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd
    SERMON: Counting the Cost by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd Sunday, February 10, 2019 Series: Rediscovering the Ministry of Jesus #2 Luke 14: 25 – 35 Preached by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd COUNTING THE COST “Now great multitudes went with him, And He turned and said to them, “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brother sand sis, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14: 25-26 Like many of you sitting here this morning, I grew up in a generation where we were taught that ageless truth, “Nothing truly worth having comes easy or is free.” And whether we were Depression Era babies, World War II Babies or Boomers, as children many of us saw this reality lived out. In our home Dad was the sole breadwinner of the household, and he never bought a new car until after he retired, Mama would cook a big meal on Sunday and then we would eat off of the leftovers until about Tuesday; Mom often recycling the meal into something with a little variety. Back in those days spam was a common household item. How many of us saw our parents make tremendous sacrifices so that we, their children might have a better life? And they did it all willingly because they had counted the cost and were willing to make the sacrifices. Sometimes we got that special treat of shopping at the Goodwill finding those bargains, and collecting Blue-Chip Stamps, or S & H Green Stamps and putting items on layaway because it was better stewardship with the meager funds. Our parents like many lived by the stewardship motto of: pay as you go rather than charge now and pay later.” Everyone of us has our own story to tell, some might add they remember eating jelly or ketchup sandwiches, or lots of spam, or some that they walked to school with cardboard in their shoes, some that on some days it was beans, beans, and more beans; but the bottom line is that there was a day when we counted the cost of what it would take, to buy a home, put children through school, and make ends meet in order to reach our goals. As we celebrate Black History month, we ought never forget those unsung men and women whose names will never appear in Time, or News Week or some other form of media common to our times. The unsung men and women, like our . . . for the full sermon, Visit: http://inglewoodfirstpres.org/audio-sermon/counting-the-cost-rev-kidd-luke-14-black-history-month

  • Our Need for Work & Worship by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd
    Our Need for Work & Worship by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd OUR NEED FOR WORK AND WORSHIP (Nehemiah 4: 1-6, 8: 1 – 6 / Preached by Rev. Dr. Harold E. Kidd) “So we built the wall, and the entire wall was joined together to half its height, for the people had a mind to work.” Nehemiah 4:6 “And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was standing above all the people; and when he opened it, all the people stood up. And Ezra blessed the Lord, the great God. Then all the people answered, ‘Amen. Amen!” while lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads and worshiped the Lord with their faces to the ground.” Nehemiah 8: 5,6 Let me begin this Sermon by saying we were designed by God for ‘Work and Worship’. Amen. . . . Idleness is the devil’s workshop. Yes, we were created for work, as stewards and caretakers of God’s earth. As builders of families, civilizations, cultures and societies. Yet, God also recognizes that all work and no rest leads to burnout. As the crown of God’s creation God set aside the seventh day, which we call the Sabbath to rest from our labors and worship God. So the day of rest was firstly designed for worship. After the pattern of God Himself, work and worship is built into our spiritual and human DNA.
