Philippians 3:7-4:1 Sermon: “Goals?, Straining for?, and Prizes”

Posted by: Rev. Richard Bodini - July 28, 2013

Our text this morning is a great text. It should be easy to preach. However, I have struggled with it throughout the week. Attending conference sessions in the morning? trying to incorporate what was taught and suggested in my one-on-one session? and putting into practice a new way of creating a sermon has left me between a rock and hard place. Pressing on toward the goal of a sermon that says something true about the text and connects to our hearts. That’s where I’m stuck on this Thursday afternoon.

Kingdom Rock VBS Service

Posted by: Rev. Richard Bodini - July 21, 2013

Good morning and welcome to our VBS Sunday worship service. This past week we experienced the promise that we can Stand Strong for God at “Kingdom Rock.” What a wonderful (understand HOT!) time we had at VBS this week. We give thanks for our organizers, Lady Elaine and Lady Darlene, and the many station leaders who helped out this week. We were truly blessed! This morning, you get a quick glimpse at what we experienced this week.

Philippians 2:19-30 -- "Walking and Working Together: Life in a Complete Community"

Posted by: Rev. Richard Bodini - July 7, 2013

What do you do with young folks? Over the last few years, young adult advisors have been attending Synod. Walking into the meeting room of Synod is daunting for a first time delegate, let alone for a 19-year old. This is what one youth advisor said about Synod, “‘All of the young adults were welcomed with open arms first into each of our [advisory] committees and then onto the floor, giving us the best gift possible: respect and attention while we spoke,’ said Nicholas Chuba, 19. He said that the young adult representatives entered the week with fear their opinions would be dismissed, but he ‘was proved wrong almost immediately.’” Timothy is a youngster. It doesn’t seem the Philippians are going to receive him very warmly. How do we receive our youth? Do we listen to them? Do we understand them? Do our youth and young adults listen to adults, like Timothy did with Paul? Like the young adult advisors did to the adults at Synod?
