Listen here to this Sunday’s message on the apocalypse, waiting on God, and the power of belief. How might you uncover hope and reveal faith in your life this Advent? How might you watch in hope for signs of the holy to awaken in your life?



The phrase “transforming cataclysm” is from the┬áNew Oxford Annotated Bible, The Gospel According to Matthew, p 47.

The Left Behind series is by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins.

Did you know authors can plagiarize themselves? We can. Because citation and authorship are important, I share that I used the stories in this sermon (my response to the snowstorm, and the note) in a sermon on Matthew in 2013 preached at First Congregational Church of Salem, Oregon. The scripture and message were quite different, but the stories are the same.
