We all have questions. Sometimes the answers are easy. But, sometimes, our questions are complicated and the answers are difficult to see and even harder to articulate. Join us for worship at First United Methodist Church in January as we address some of the most frequently asked questions about the Christian faith.
- January 3 – Do miracles still happen?
- January 10 – Why and how should I read the Bible?
- January 17 – How do I know God’s will for my life?
- January 24 – Why does God allow evil and suffering?
- January 31 – What does faith have to do with politics?
What is this sermon about?
This sermon is about how our faith relates to politics.
Why is this sermon important?
It is important because our faith has much to do with our politics and often we think of them as separate in our lives.
What is the context of this sermon?
This is the final week of a five week series. This sermon is adapted from two sermons by Adam Hamilton preached at The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection on October 14, 2012 and January 10, 2016.
What are the next action steps?
- Love our neighbor as we love ourselves.
- Care for those in need.
- Do to others what we would have them do to us.
- Keep any foul words from coming out of our mouth.
- Be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to be angry.
What is the good news (bottom line)?
The good news is that the Holy Spirit gives us the power to be doers of these word of scripture and not only hearers in life and politics.
