A Preamble to a Dialogue on Race (Audio)


12038219_10153635698148094_4345543526381248310_nLast week I was honored to be part of a series of sermons and dialogues at Apex Community Church in the greater Dayton (OH) area called Fear vs. Love. The goal of this three-part sermon series and special Wednesday night event was to engage one of the most polarizing issues of our day: race.

I was encouraged by the evening and I pray that Apex will be an example to other churches and Christian organizations to engage in the discussion as well.

Restorative Church Discipline: Hebrews 12:1-13 & Matthew 18:15-17

May 24, 201Redeemer Church Logo5, I was bless to preach at Redeemer Church in Rocky Mount, NC.  The church is faithful to walk through books of the Bible, but when a guest speaker comes they step into their “Healthy Church” series.  This series is comprised of sermons that walk through scripture on topics that help a church grow in a way that’s honoring to God.  Pastor Dayton and I agreed that it would be helpful for the church to hear a sermon on redemptive church discipline.  If this sermon might be helpful for you, click here.
