"Old Treasure"
 
Scripture: Luke 2: 22-40

     Simeon and Anna were, by all standards, old. Yet they provided a link between the best of the past with a God’s promise for the future. May we learn from them as we look more closely at their lives.

"A Christmas Paradox
"
Scripture: Luke 1: 26-38
(available on YouTube)
(available on YouTube)

     The apostle Paul tells us that Love always wins. This greatest gift is the reason Jesus was born. If God had only wanted to exercise His judgment and turn things right on earth, He would have ridden in on the clouds with fire. But God so loved the world that He gave His 

only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. God is Love.

"Exult in God
"
Scripture: Romans 5: 1-11
(Available on Livestream until January 13)

   Joy means the perfect fulfillment of that for which I was created and regenerated, not the successful doing of a thing. The joy of Our Lord had lay in doing what the Father sent Him to do, and He says -- As My Father hath sent me so I am sending you.” - 

Oswald Chambers in My Utmost for His Highest.

"Resigned to God, Living in Peace
"
Scripture: 2 Peter 3: 1-13

   Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”  for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven 

from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”   - Revelation 21:1-4

"Hope For the Future
"
Scripture: Psalm 119: 81
                 Mark 13: 24-37
     Advent is a season of preparation. We count off the days until Christmas on which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. We also recall Jesus’ promise that He shall return.
     Sometimes people will sometimes ask what the Advent wreath  
means. The wreath is a circle reminding us of the perfection and eternity of God. Many wreaths are decorated with evergreen branches. The evergreen, like the circle, is a symbol of eternity - but also of life. Holly is sometimes used instead of - or with - the evergreen. The sharp points of the leaves of the Holly remind us of Christ's crown of thorns. The red berries remind us of his blood. There is a story that holly berries were white until Christ's blood fell on them - causing them to be red ever since. Christ is, of course, the light of the world - hence the candles.

"Steps to Worship
"
Scripture: Psalm 95
     Jesus said, “The hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him 
must worship in spirit and truth.” - John 4:23-24
     Thanksgiving, praise and worship are three distinct acts that overlap with one another. “You must come through thanksgiving to get to praise, and praise to get to worship ... worship happens where the Spirit of God dwells, which in actuality is our spirit man or woman.”  - Tony Owens
     Today’s sermon will speak of the steps that bring us into the true worship Jesus spoke of.

"Three Things to Remember
"
Scripture: 2 Timothy 2: 1-13
       “The astonishing thing about the human being is not so much his intellect and bodily structure, profoundly mysterious as they are. The astonishing and least comprehensible thing about him is his range of 
vision; his gaze into the infinite distance; his lonely passion for ideas and  ideals ... for which ... he will stand till he dies, the profound conviction he entertains that if nothing is worth dying for nothing is worth living for"   Source:  Jewish Prayer Book p. 688.

"The Lord's Pruning
"
Scripture: John 15: 1-10
     In the classic devotional by L. B. Cowman, Streams in the Desert, there is recorded a simple but poignant poem that asks the question, “Why must this lot of life be mine?” The answer: “Because God knows 
 what plans for me shall blossom in eternity.”
    God knows what opportunities await you. And He is preparing you so that His glory can truly shine through you. First, however, He must remove what is unnecessary. In John 15:2, He promised, “Every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.” Understand that trials are never evidence that God has abandoned you. On the contrary, they suggest that God is molding you for great things ahead. He has a place of service that is suited perfectly for you. However, He must first develop your trust in Him. Then you will see a great harvest and experience the joy of having the Lord work through you.
     Prayer: Thank You, Lord, that You have a place of service suited perfectly for me. Develop my trust in You. Prune the branches of my life, and then work through me. - From Pathways to His Presence -by Charles F. Stanley

"The Pursuit of Righteousness
"
Scripture: Ephesians 4: 17-32
     Jesus said, “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” - Matthew 6:33
     Cancer, by definition, is an abnormal cell growth with the potential to spread and invade other parts of the body. Certain environmental 
factors, a lack of proper exercise as well as dietary factors can contribute to cancer, in part, by changing the genes of a cell. Evil spreads like a cancer. It takes what is healthy, adds circumstances that are difficult and frequently sinful, and then grows in the body of Christ. God is superficial. God is concerned with righteousness not simply because it is His own personal preference, but because He knows that righteousness is what brings life. Unrighteousness, like an untreated cancer, brings death.
     Dr. Henry Cloud writes: “In our own lives we need to seek God’s kingdom and righteousness, not to be good, but to stay alive. For people to grow and find life worth living, they must do the two things to which kingdom and righteousness refer. They must seek the ways of God (how his kingdom operates), and they must live and internalize those ways for themselves. To find his ways is to find the kingdom; to live his ways is to find righteousness.” p. 241 in How People Grow.

"A Sinner’s Banquet for a King
"
Scripture: Luke 5: 27-39
     “All of the Law and the Prophets are summarized by a commandment to love God ( spiritual vitality) and to love God our neighbor (relational vitality). It’s like two sides of the same coin. Unconditional 
love for our neighbors is impossible unless we have a deep sense of the presence and power of God in our lives. The strongest indicator that our love for God is pure and obedient is when it results in a more faithful and effective expression of love for others. When we get out of balance, we are less able to influence the world in which we live.” Leading Congregational Change – Ferr, Bonem, Herrington, p. 3 
     Today’s sermon will speak of what we, as a congregation, need to be today if we are to become what God’s wants us to be tomorrow.

"
Giving Thanks and Giving"
Scripture: Philippians 4:4-20
    On January the 31st, 1957 the Canadian parliament proclaimed: A Day of Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed — to be observed on the 2nd Monday 
in October. Although decreed by an act of parliament, the roots of thanksgiving are ancient and God ordained. The Jewish feast of Sukkot, that is the “Feast of Tabernacles” recalls God’s provision to the Israelites while travelling through the desert to the promised land, and is associated with the fall harvest and thanksgiving. Today we celebrate thanksgiving.

"
Bread For the Soul"
Scripture: 1 Samuel 21: 1-6
     Today is World Wide Communion Sunday. World Wide Communion Sunday originated in the Presbyterian Church (USA). In 1936, for the first time, the first Sunday in October was celebrated in  
Presbyterian churches in the United States and overseas. Intended to reflect and inspire unity among Christians, it serves as a consistent reminder  of our common faith in Jesus Christ and what He has done for us.
    Although our celebration of communion originates from Jesus’ last celebration of the Passover with his disciples before he was crucified, there is ample room to explore the rich symbolism of the bread we eat. This is the topic of today’s message.

"Faithful Response to Divine Intervention"
Scripture: 2 Kings 7: 1-20
    When Jesus taught His disciples how to pray He demonstrated by praying. He told them that when they pray they should say this: “Your kingdom come Your Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven”(Lk. 11:2)
In doing so, He revealed that the prayers of His disciples link Heaven and Earth. It is God’s plan that Earth should become a place where His Will is done and His reign is established. This link, and our role, in it is the subject of today’s sermon.


September 21     Rev. David Fisher
"The Uncontested Fatherhood of God"
Scripture: Genisis2: 4-7 / 15-25
    We begin the Lord’s Prayer with the words, “Our Father”. It is a sign of the intimacy that Jesus first displayed with God, even as it is an invitation to Jesus’ disciples to share that same level intimacy through the Holy Spirit.
   What it means to call God “Father” is the subject of today’s sermon.

"Faith Tested"
Scripture: Joshua 14: 6-15
                  Romans 5: 1-4
    Most of us like to be comfortable, but life’s challenges-by their nature-cause discomfort. Have you ever asked yourself if you can live a Christian life without challenge?
     Today’s sermon will consider the role that challenges play in the Christian life
.

September 7     Rev. David Fisher
"Spiritual Correction"
Scripture: Galatians 6: 1-10
     Confronting misbehavior in others is one of the most difficult things to do. Yet it needs to be done. The apostle Paul writes how it should be done in the church. This is the topic of today’s sermon.


August 31     Rev. David Fisher
"Walking Together"
Scripture: Galatians 5: 13-26

     People are never going to grow by listening to a sermon once a week and then just go about their business. They must gain deeper knowledge about God’s ways (His kingdom) and also find out how those ways  

apply to their own issues in life (His righteousness). They need to discover what is true about them, and they need feedback about how their patterns work and what to do differently. Then they can grow.” How People Grow, by Cloud and Townsend p. 247. 
     The Bible exhorts us to “walk in the Spirit”. What would it mean if that were more like a community walk than an individual hike? Today’s sermon explores this topic.

August 24     Rev. David Fisher
"Experience God's Healing Grace"
Scripture: Ephesians 4: 11-16

     To experience God’s grace, however, our hearts have to be connected to it. We can certainly connect to God “vertically” through prayer, but to feel his grace completely we have to open our hearts to 

the full expression of it “horizontally” through other people. To connect fully with the grace of God, we have to go to where it is, and he has chosen to put it into other people. So those who only study the “facts” of the grace of God and do not experience other people loving them ... will fall short in their realization of that grace. - Dr. Henry Cloud, How People Grow, p. 128.


August 17     Rev. David Fisher
"Doing God's Will"
Scripture: John 14: 1-15

     Jesus said that he is, “the way, the truth and the life.” Our experience of God is rooted in our relationship with Jesus Christ. As we put our faith in Him we come to know that God is love, and therefore His will is 

always best, that God is all-knowing, and therefore his directions are always right, and we come to know that God is all-powerful and therefore He is enable us to accomplish His will. Faith involves making a choice to trust our lives to God. The path is filled with challenges but it is on this path that we experience God in our lives. Today’s sermon will discuss the connection between knowing Jesus and experiencing God.

"That's Life"
Scripture: John 17 1-8

     In the future, scientists may be able to prolong life, but will it be worth living?” writes Nigel Hawkes in The Times in London. The Bible says something worth listening to on how not only to have eternal life, but 

also how to live a  fulfilling life. Today’s sermon will explore this topic.

"Signs of Life"

"A Christian Response
     to Persecution"
Scripture: Acts 16: 16-40

     British Prime Minister David Cameron said recently that “our religion is now the most persecuted religion around the world” and “We should stand up against persecution of Christians and other religious groups wherever and whenever we can, and should be unashamed in doing so.” 

Religious persecution is nothing new. The question is how should we deal with it? This sermon reflects, in simple terms, a Biblical response to this issue.




June 22     Rev. David Fisher
"Circumstance & Success
         in God's Eyes"
Scripture: Acts 16: 6-24

     One of the most prevalent questions asked by those who truly love God is how can I know God’s will? The Bible give us both general and specific guidance but it does not give us details specific to our circumstances. Jesus promised that Christian believers would receive 

guidance from the Holy Spirit. This message will consider the connection between our circumstances and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

"Commission and Commandment"
Scripture: Matthew 28: 16-20

     Christians are not, by definition, people who strive to follow a set of rules to be good like Jesus. God gave the law through Moses. Christians are people who believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ  

we are saved. There are “commandments” that the followers of Jesusare told to teach and obey. What are they and what makes them Good News as opposed to just another set of obligations we must strive to meet? This is the topic of today’s message.

"To Be a God Follower"
Scripture: Acts 16: 1-5
     We don’t realize just how absolutely radical the good news of Jesus Christ really is. Why else would the apostle Paul be inspired to pray that God would, “grant ... that being rooted and grounded in love, [believers] 
may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height -- to know the love of God which passes knowledge; that [we] may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Eph. 3:18-19).
     Christians are not, by definition, people who strive to follow a set of rules to be good like Jesus. God gave the law through Moses. Christians are people who believe that, through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, we are saved. So what does that mean.
     Today’s message will speak about the relationship between the law and salvation.

"The Creative Side of conflict"
Scripture: Acts 15
     Though conflict rips out our hearts, God gives us his power to do his work. That strips us of pride and self-sufficiency—there are times when I press forward in my service to him out of total weakness, moving  
solely on God’s power. Paul seems to indicate that is the norm rather than the exception:  We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus.… For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body” (2 Cor. 4:10–11). With Christ we are never devoid of hope, never left to our own strength. God never abandons us. Our weakness, wounds, and brokenness are opportunities to experience Christ’s power and presence through us. - Gary D. Preston in Character Forged From Conflict: Staying Connected to God During Controversy

"Called & Dedicated"
Scripture: 1 Samuel: 24: 1-22
     "Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain… Behold children are a heritage (gift) from the LORD, the
fruit of the womb is a reward.  Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them…" (Psalm 127:1-5)

May 11     Rev. David Fisher
"Waiting in Those Waiting Days"
Scripture: Acts 1: 1-17
     In these days of instant gratification, where a computer’s performance is measured in milliseconds, a cup of coffee is late if it is not ready instantly, and the morning paper feels more dated than yesterday’s  
news, we have grown intolerant of waiting. But waiting, however unwelcomed ,is still a part of life. Jesus told his disciples to wait. Today’s sermon considers why waiting can be a good thing.

"Jesus Rose and Changed the World"
Scripture: Acts 2:14a, 22-32
     "Within weeks of the Crucifixion, thousands of Jews began abandoning key social practices that had critical and sociological importance for centuries. They believed they risked damnation if they - 
were wrong." Lee Strobel in the Case for Christ p. 264.
     Today's sermon will examine how the resurrection of Jesus changed the Jews who followed Jesus, and help us understand the religious significance of the resurrection of Christ.

" Arriving Home "
Scripture: Colossians 3: 1-4
     After the Sabbath, at the dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.
     Their was a viloent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down 
from heaven and going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.
     His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were as white as snow. The guard were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
     The angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.
     He is not here; He is risen, Just as He said. Come and see the place where he lay.
     He is not here; He is risen! Alleluia!

April 13     Rev. David Fisher
" The Impending Death
          of a Righteous King "
Scripture: Mathew 21: 1-17
     What is Palm Sunday? What does that mean? Jesus Christ, the world's most influential figure, a week before being crucified, received a hero's welcome from a rag tag crowd of palm bearing pilgrims. They strewed both cloaks and palm branches upon the ground and shouted 
the now familiar words, "Hosanna, Hosanna in the highest!"
     The great city of Jerusalem received her promised King only to give him up for dead one tumultuous week later. And before his death Jesus wept over the city, for he knew the ones who should receive him would forsake him and give themselves up for judgment. They failed to "recognize the time of God's coming" (Luke 19:44)
     On Palm Sunday we anticipate Jesus passion, that is his procession of sufferings, and we recount that "we all, like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all" (Isaiah 53:6). We remember that we are not Christians because of the good things we do, but because we recognize God's coming in Jesus and trust our lives to him who bore our sins upon the cross. Glory be to Jesus Christ, the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. (John 1:29)

April 6     Rev. David Fisher
" Preparing For Life "
Scripture: John11: 1-45
     When we are young, we look to the future and consider what we can do with our lives, whom we will marry, what kind of job we will have, whether we will have a family and where we will live. Life is before us. 
   As we age, we remember our past more, partly because there is more to remember, and partly because there seems to be less to look forward to. Sometimes we recall the events in our lives with gratitude, and sometimes with pain as we recognize the opportunities we have squandered and the things that could have been. 
     Where is God in all of this? God uses the experiences of our lives as building blocks for our character, as a means for us to grow in faith, and as stepping stones to accomplish the call He has placed on our lives. God is able to redeem our past, and secure our future. 
     When the disciples of Jesus witnessed how He raised Lazarus, He was preparing their faith to believe the Good News from the women at the tomb, namely that He had been raised from the dead. 
     Today’s message will examine how God prepares us for life.

" The Just Shall Give by Faith "
Scripture: Mark 12:38-44
   Pastor Joe McKeever asks; "So what is a healthy church?" He writes; "Entire libraries could be filled with books written on the healthy church, and consultants abound ready to assist congregations toward that 
purpose. But Romans 12 is God's blueprint for a healthy church. Verses 1-2 call for each individual to make personal commitment to Christ ("present your bodies as a living sacrifice"); verses 3-8 call for each one to find his/her place of service where they can use their spiritual gifts; and verse 9 through the end of the chapter describes the relationships within a healthy, loving fellowship of believers.
     Thenhe adds, "Show me a congregation where members are wholheartedly committed to Jesus Christ, each using (or learning to use) their God-given spiritual gifts in the Lord's service, and their fellowship is sweet and active - and I'll show you a healthy church."

" The Rest of the Story "
Scripture: Exodus 17: 1-7, Psalms 95
     The strength of metal is tested under pressure. our faith and our attitude toward God is tested under difficult circumstances. In today’s scripture lesson we read about the ancient Israelites who found . 
themselves tested by the lack of water in a desert that God had directed them into. The outcome was telling. As you listen today, you can ask yourself, “How might I respond if I were in the same situation?”

" Unbridled Life in
         a Culture of Death "
Scripture: John 10: 1-10
     There is good reason to feel depressed. Bad news is everywhere, as seen on the television, read in the newspaper headlines, and with computers - merely a mouse click away. In these times what we need is more than “pollyanna” optimism. Jesus said, “I have come that they may
have life, and have it to the full.” How can we, in these times, make sense of what Jesus promised?
This is the theme of today’s sermon.

March 9     Rev. David Fisher
" Blessed Confession "
Scripture: Psalms 32
     No one feels joyful about confessing his or her sins and transgression. Who wants to feel guilty? We would rather avoid or deny than come clean. Yet coming clean is exactly what God wants us to do and we do it through confession. 
     Augustine of Hippo has said, “The confession of evil works is the first beginning of good works.” Today’s sermon delves into the delicate topic of confession and through it the blessing of receiving of forgiveness. It is about good news.

March 2     Rev. David Fisher
" The Prophetic Word
             - Guidance from God"
Scripture: Acts 14: 1-7, 19-26
     If we are to have a dynamic relationship with God, both as individuals and as a church, we must take Paul's instruction: Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not dispise prophecies. 21 Test all things; hold fast what is good." 1 Thes. 5: 19-21
     In the original language the word for prophecies is "propheteia" the primary use of which is not predictive, in the sense of foretelling, but interpretive, declaring, or forth-telling, the will and counsel of God. If we are open to receiving guidance and the counsel from God, by definition we should be open to receiving prophecy.

" Receiving the Good News "
Scripture: Acts 13: 13-52
     George Otis Jr. writes, “Doesn’t it make sense to admonish the non-Christian to understand God’s character before committing themselves to an eternal relationship? When the world asks us questions that relate to God’s character, and we respond by saying 
that we cannot understand God’s ways, we are dangerously distorting the picture. No, I cannot understand God’s omnipotence, nor can I explain how He can be present everywhere simultaneously. However, I do not commit myself to God because He is omnipresent or omnipotent. I commit myself to Him because He is loving, just and kind!” p. 96-97 of The God They Never Knew. We get to know the character of God by understanding what God has done in human history. In short it is important to know.
     In today’s reading, Paul presents what God has done. The response to the Good News was varied. Nevertheless, God used even the negative response for His own glory.

" Exposing the Darkness,
             Bringing the Light "
Scripture: Acts 13: 4-12
     We live in an age where the Harry Potter book series has sold over 450 million copies in 73 languages world wide. At the same time the prevalence of occult themes within the entertainment industry, and the practice of what was once termed the "Black Arts" has risen dramatically. It is worth pausing and reflecting on what the bible 
teaches when it states" Do not practice divination or sorcery." - Leviticus 19: 26. Today's sermon will reflect on a dramatic power encounter between the apostle Paul and a false prophet named Elymas, also known as Bar-Jesus. May we have -- to use the words of Jesus, "ears to hear" --what the Holy Spirit will teach us today.

" The Mission Begins "
Scripture: Acts 13: 1-12
     Every mission must have an objective. Sometimes that objective is unseen. For instance, when the apostle Paul received his traveling orders he could not have foreseen writing approximately one third of the New Testament. But God knew and he did. As it is written: “Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will be established” (Proverbs 19:21)...... More

" We are Not God "
Scripture: Acts 12: 1-25
     There is no teaching or ministry -- even by the best-taught servant of God -- that can do as much good as a santified experince. You must learn under that blessed schoolmaster, Mr. Affliction. It is good to go to his school, for the lessons are beneficial. One of his scholars wrote: 
"Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I keep Your word .... It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn Your statutes"  (Ps 119: 67, 71). C.H. Spurgeon  Besides Still Waters, p. 105

     The book of Proverbs was written to show how Godly wisdom merges with real life. Primarily written by King Soloman, (Agur and Lemuel were also contributors), the book was written to Israel and especially to young people just starting out in life. Proverbs are short 
truths condensed into few word that apply to various situations in life.
     Those who embrace the wisdom contained within the Proverbs, stand to suceed in life. As we read portions of Proverbs, consider how you cvan find wisdom and apply it to your life.

"Epiphany's Metaphor"
     Today is Epiphany. It is long standing tradition to celebrate Epiphany on the 12th day after Christmas. What is Epiphany? Mary Fairchild answers the question this way: "The word epiphany means "manifestation" 
or "revelation" and is commonly linked in Western Christianity with the visit of the wise men (Magi) to the Christ child. Through the Magi, Christ revealed himself to the gentiles."
