Sermon Notes– 8:30 & 9:30 Services-Rev. Riley
Allowing God to bind our wounds and heal our broken hearts:
1. We accept the reality of our wounds
2. We lean on God’s power and strength
3. We hold on to hope
4. We get in or stay in a healing community
5. We give ourselves and become wounded healers
Sermon Notes-10:45 Service-Rev. Phillips
“You Are the Light of the World”
1. Light was the first thing God created.
2. Particularity in the New Testament is the metaphor of light
3. Our role in the drama of creation
4. The question is, will we let the light go out?
A Set of Learnings
Andy Wolfe is Pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church in Birmingham, Al., and he
recently shared with his congregation this “ Set of Learnings.” As we reflect and think about this
year of 2014 and beyond, I’d like to share them with you.
....that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.
….that you should not compare yourself to the best others can do, but to do the best
that you can do.
….that you cannot make someone love you, all you can do is to be someone who can
be loved. The rest is up to them.
….that it’s not what happens to people that’s important, it’s what they do about it.
….that it’s a lot easier to react than to think.
….that you can keep going after you think you can’t.
….that you either control your attitude or it controls you.
….that you should never tell a child their dreams are unlikely or outlandish.
….that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
To add to Andy’s list, I would add this bit of wisdom that I have embraced over the years-
I’ve learned that nothing in life or death can ever separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus
God Bless You,
