Ruth: A Story of Dedication

Ruth 1:10-18; 2:11-12 and Deuteronomy 10:12-21
Sermon Text: 09.02.2018

          There is a light in the heart of humanity. There is a glimmer, a flicker of the candle that defies logic, ignores failure, persists. Some call it ignorance. Some call it stupidity. I just like to call it hope. For example… Thomas Edison is well known for his creation of one of the early models of the light bulb. It took him 1,000 tries. Babe Ruth is well known as the home run champion of the world for a long time. He had 714 major league home runs. Lesser known is the fact that he was also the all-time strikeout champion. When he retired in 1935 he held the record with 1,330 career strikeouts. For all of his fame as a home run champion, he struck out almost twice as often. Henry Ford went broke five times before he found success. Michael Jordan, possibly the greatest basketball player of all time (I look forward to your letters, Lebron fans) – Michael Jordan is credited with this quote, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve bene trusted to take the game winning shot, and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. That is why I succeed.” Walk Disney was fired by a newspaper because he lacked imagination. He also went bankrupt several times before Disneyland was built. The first time Jerry Seinfeld walked on state a comedy club he froze and was jeered offstage in less than two minutes. 12 publishers rejected J.K. Rowling. 27 publishers rejected Dr. Seuss. Now these stories would all be very

Daniel: A Story of Peer Pressure

[Daniel 1:8-16 and Daniel 6:6-11, 16
Sermon Text: 08.26.2018

          In the 1950’s there was a psychologist by the name of Solomon Asch who conducted a series of tests to see just how much people would give in to peer pressure. The test was simple enough. The test subjects were told that they would be given a standard eye test. They were shown a piece of paper with a line on it, and a second paper with three lines of different lengths. All the test subject had to do was raise their hand to identify which line was the same length as the line on the first paper. But only one person in the room was actually a test subject. Everyone else was part of the test – instructed to raise their hand for the wrong answer. Without a group around them, the error ratio was less than 1% – everybody got it right. But, in a group setting, the first they did it, over 75% gave the wrong answer to at least one of the questions – if everyone around them gave the same answer. Peer pressure is real.

          Today is week four of our five part sermon series – Old Testament Stories of Love. So far we have spend some time with Moses, Esther and last week we heard the whole story of Samson. But today we will examine two stories about the same man. Both stories of Daniel are all about handling and responding to peer pressure. Let’s take a look.

Moses: A Story of Trust and Awe

Sermon Text – 08.05.2018

[Exodus 3:1-6 and Exodus 14: …]

A wise man once said there are two season in Michigan – winter and construction – and of course, there’s nothing worse on a long car-ride than a traffic jam. We all know what’s it’s like – you see that train of brakelights going off into the distance and mentally add four hours to your arrival time. And of course, most of the time it’s a car crash or an animal or something like that, and even if nobody is hurt and the lanes aren’t actually blocked – traffic still slows down to a standstill because every single driver insists on plastering their face up against the window to stare and see what happened as they drive by. There is no need for traffic to be so back up except that we cannot tear our eyes away. WE have to slow down and take a look. I imagine that’s sort of what Moses must have felt like when he saw the burning bush. Scripture tells us, [read v.3]. I mean, common! It’s a bush, that’s on fire, covered in flames, and yet it is not burning up! Let’s slow down and take a quick peek. SO that’s what we’re going to do this morning. We’re going to slow down and take a quick peek at this story – see if we can learn something in the process. Today is the first sermon in a new series called “Old Testament Stories of Love” and for the month of August we’re going to wander the pages of the old Testament and see what we can learn about this God that we worship.
