"Tell the Story and Tell it Well"

This simple charge from author, archaeologist, and professor of Old Testament Studies, Dr. Sandra Richter, continues to fuel my passion for digging deep into the epic narrative of God's love as found in the Old and New Testaments of Holy Scripture. This site offers a collection of weekly sermons which reflect my humble attempt at such an overwhelming task.

The same story told throughout the ages continues today as God writes new chapters upon the hearts of every man, woman, and child. May you find yourself in God's great narrative and tell the part of the story that only you can tell... what God is doing in your life today!

In His Image,

Pastor Craig

  • 06-12-16- Loving Self
    06-12-16- Loving Self Psalm 139, Romans 12:1-5 - Love your neighbor AS YOURSELF... This is a hard command when we are constantly down on ourselves, pushing ourselves to hard and generally not caring for ourselves at all. Without a healthy love and care for self grounded in the love God has for us, we will not be able to truly pour ourselves out to others.

  • 06-05-16 - Loving Neighbor
    06-05-16 - Loving Neighbor 1 Corinthians 13 - Why is it that some people are so hard to love? Maybe it starts with us... our vision is blurred because we don't know the whole story about another person... perhaps this is why God says so much about loving others instead of judging them, for only He knows the whole story.
