Sermons

The following sermons comprise a series on The Apostles' Creed that I preached at St. John's United Methodist Church in Dover, NH in 2004.  You can read about the origins and history of the creed here.

Below is the text of the creed.  I have linked each line to the sermon about that line.  There are twelve sermons total. (Note that the first line contains two links.)

TEXT: 1 John 1:5-10

We’re almost there. For months now we have been preparing for our journey into mission by examining the map left to us by the ancients…the Apostle’s Creed. We have gone through controversial lines, misunderstood lines, historical lines, and confusing lines. By contrast, this week we come to a simply difficult line…a line we basically understand and, I think, a line where we have at least a gut level of agreement. When it comes to the forgiveness of sins, however, we find it terribly difficult to actually do.

TEXT: Mark 1:14-15; Ezekiel 36:25-27

These are sermons drawn from texts in John's first letter.  For first-time Bible readers, note that this is a different book than John's Gospel.  The New Testament also has three letters attributed to "John," although whether they are the same John as the author of John's Gospel is a matter of dispute.
