This Sunday I will begin a sermon series on the Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:1-11). This series coincides with a congregational study, "The Way of Blessedness." This will be our theme and focus as we move into Lent in preparation for the celebration of the Resurrection.
Each week of the seven-part sermon series, I will focus on a word a week. For this Sunday the work is "kingdom" and we will consider how the teachings of Jesus create a particular kind of culture in which we are called to live. The rest of the series is as follows:
Feb. 19: Luke 18:9-14, Poor
Feb. 26: Luke 19:41-44, Mourn
March 5: Acts 9:1-31, Meek
March 12: Luke 4:16-30, Hunger
March 19: Luke 13:10-17, Merciful
April 2: Mark 14:17-25, Peace
As we enter into Lent, I hope you will plan to join us for this congregational study and series. You can still sign up for the study here. And remember, if you can't make it to church one Sunday, the sermons are available online at fpcrichmond/sermons.
See you on Sunday!
Thanks for listening,
