Sermon

Elders, deacons and trustees, called to follow Christ in unique church ministries, will be ordained and installed during the 11:00a. worship service. In addition, we will honor Rev.

Sermon: Power to Release

Kyle Kooyers

Sermon    
Sunday, January 19, 2020

Join us as we welcome Kyle Kooyers to the pulpit. Kyle is a Candidate for Ordination in the PC(USA), a Westminster member, and a program manager for the Kaufman Interfaith Institute. Kyle will reflect on "Power to Release" based on John 18:33-19:11, where we encounter two infamous conversations between Pilate and Jesus that creates an ambiguity as to who is actually on trial. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said “I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporally defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant”

Together we find our way into the promise of Christmas and into all the story holds. This Advent, we walk through Isaiah’s imagery-filled witness of God and God’s people. “Come, let us go to the mountain of the Lord.” We step into hope. “They will not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain.” There will be peace. “The eyes of the blind will be opened.” And, oh the joy that comes. “God will give a sign,” a sign of pure unbounded love, love made flesh. Along with our preachers, elders have been invited to pray us through this season. Households will call us into worship with the lighting of the advent candle and each week we will hear the scripture spoken both before and after the sermon. And, art created by members of the congregation for prayerful meditation will be on display in the chapel. What might we learn, notice, and receive along this way this year? Rev.
