Greater in Christ

Posted by David Dixon on

In our reading today we come to Luke 7. This includes one of my favorite passages in the Gospels, but as much I want to write about it...I'll save that for my sermon on Sunday. Instead I will focus on a statement Jesus makes that is a bit confusing but should encourage us greatly today. In...

A Different Kind of Anger

Posted by David Dixon on

When you read through the Gospels, it isn't very often that we see Jesus get angry. We can forget that Jesus cracked the whip at the money changers in the Temple or that he called the Pharisees "whitewashed tombs." There were things that made Jesus so upset that the disciples took notice and...
