The Road to Emmaus
10:30am, Sunday, April 26, 2020
Passage: Luke 24:13-35
Series: General
Duration: 17 mins 6 secs
The two disciples walking to Emmaus were so downcast they did not even recognize who was walking with them (at least until he broke bread with them). Similarly, we can be so absorbed in the daily crisis that we lose sight of our Lord. But he is with us!

Hundreds of years before Jesus was even born, the prophet Isaiah accurately foretold the sufferings of the Anointed One. And almost two thousand years later, what do these sufferings mean for us?

Humility
10:30am, Sunday, April 5, 2020
Series: General
Duration: 12 mins 50 secs
When the Director General of the World Health Organization calls for humility, we are blessed to have the example of Jesus this Palm Sunday. At Easter he is triumphant and victorious; but today, instead of riding in on a warhorse like a conquering hero, he rides in on the foal of a donkey.

Learnings from a Grave Situation
10:30am, Sunday, March 29, 2020
Passage: John 11:1-45
Series: General
Duration: 22 mins 26 secs
When Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, many came to believe in him. But the story includes many other insights helpful to us now, as we adjust to COVID-19 isolation. Who would have predicted, after he deliberately delayed going to Lazarus' family, that "Jesus wept"? Ours is a deeply compassionate God, ever calling us to faith.

Series: General
Duration: 19 mins 7 secs
Like the Israelites journeying through the wilderness, we can sometimes wonder whether the Lord is really among us. But when the Samaritans in today's Gospel heard what Jesus said, they believed. In these difficult times, we cling to Jesus and his word of life. We pray, we listen, we adapt. [Keyboard/choir - Lent 3]
