Sermon Notes

For a while our church did not have a pastor, so some members of the congregation would volunteer or be asked to bring the sermon during our service. On rare occasions, I too had a chance to do this. Here are some of my sermon notes. In doing this, I would draw from various resources (which I may have neglected to give proper credit or references, unfortunately) so I do not deserve all the credits (although any shortcoming would certainly be my responsibility). These notes however correctly reflect my personal beliefs at the time they were written. It is not unlikely though that my beliefs, understanding, knowledge, or insights that I currently hold have changed since I believe faith and Christianity is a continued learning process that last a lifetime.
