West End United Methodist Church

Now Faith

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Sunday service

Today we begin a new three-weeks sermon series on passages from the Letter (sermon) to the Hebrews, and today’s reading is a treatise on faith, giving examples of several well-known ancestors, especially Abraham.  Carol explains that she’s preaching to this congregation about a sermon that was preached to a congregation centuries ago, a congregation that was tired because they were trying to live out God’s word in a time dominated by an empire while waiting on the return of Jesus and the coming of the kingdom.  This can speak to us in our time.  As examples, Abraham and Sarah were called and were faithful.  In spite of great odds, God worked through them to begin the people of God.  God’s miracles worked through their faith.  God wants to use us, too, through our faith.  (NOTE:  Due to a technical problem, the videos will not be available on this page until late this week.)
