Sermon – Sunday 29 September 2019/Rev. Charleston D. Wilson

In the Name of the Living God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen. Jesus promised Nathaniel that he would “see greater things.” Not everyone agrees. Do you remember Steven Hawking, the great Cambridge mathematician? Before he died last March, he was quoted as saying: I...

Sermon – Sunday 22 September 2019/Rev. Charleston D. Wilson

In the Name of the Living God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen. I really only have one thing to say in the little homily, and it’s this: God loves imperfect people! The pharisees (you remember them) saw this as Jesus’ great character flaw, because he hung out, and...

Sermon – Sunday 15 September 2019/Rev. Christian M. Wood

Sermon – Sunday 18th August 2019/Rev. Charleston D. Wilson

In the Name of the Living God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen. We find ourselves today in the twelfth chapter of the Gospel according to St. Luke. Way back in chapter nine, which was appointed about six or so weeks ago, St. Luke tells us that “Jesus set his face to...

Sermon – Sunday 11 August 2019/Rev. Christian M. Wood

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. If someone who was not familiar with Church of the Redeemer came to you and asked you to tell them about Redeemer, what would you say? What if they asked you, "What is Redeemer’s greatest treasure?" How would...

Sermon – Sunday 28 July 2019/Rev. Charleston D. Wilson
