February 5 -The Face in the Mirror - 2 Corinthians 2:14-3:3, 18

Paul was such a creator of metaphors that they sometimes came bubbling out of him, one after the other. But the metaphor he offers in 2 Corinthians 3:18 has so much in it that we could spend the rest of our lives exploring it: gazing into a mirror and seeing in it the face of the Lord… then being transformed into the image we see. I’ll point out many facets of this metaphor that are worthy of reflection and give some practical advice on how to do what he’s talking about.

February 12 - Confessions - Matthew 16:13-17 and Luke 4:33-35

We like to celebrate Simon Peter’s “Great Confession,” but we overlook the fact
that the demons knew who Jesus was, too; in fact, their description was better than his
because it acknowledged how they were related to Jesus and how that relationship was going to change them.
In this sermon I will present the four gospels as narrative confessions that give us glimpses
of how the early church viewed Jesus and their relation to him.
I will challenge us all to keep wrestling with the question.
