Poverty, in the deepest biblical sense, is any kind of brokenness, whether that be in a personal or cultural context, that restricts people from living in the fullness of humanity that God intends.

Something to Believe In – A Sermon

No Comments »

This is my farewell sermon given at First United Methodist Church in Wichita Falls, Texas on February 26, 2012.  I felt it was very personal and really only something beneficial for that church.  Yet, I’ve had much positive feedback from people from other UM churches as well as people from other denominations.  Thus, I decided to share it here.

The primary Scripture passage for this sermon is John 14:12: “Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father.”
