Oh, What a Preacher! (although he might argue with the praise…)

This weekend was the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the ordination of Pastor Weedon at St. Paul’s in Hamel, IL.  I had the pleasure of listening to him lead chapel during my years of high school, and have been blessed by subscribing to his blog, Weedon’s Blog.  So first, congratulations to him.

Second, Pastor Matthew Harrison preached the sermon for the service this weekend at St. Paul’s.  And oh, what a preacher!  The link to the sermon is here.  Thanks to Issues, Etc. for the link.  So, take 14 minutes and 53 seconds out of your day and listen to our Synod’s president preach the Law and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

To God be the Glory!

Jesus is Immediate

As a followup for the Gospel of the Week for August 7th, here’s the sermon on Jesus walking on the water by Pastor John Shank of Trinity Lutheran Ministries in Edwardsville, IL.  I found this to be an excellent sermon.  It was also very interesting to sit at the very front of the church, per my son’s request this morning.  He liked it because he could see everything and was quiet and attentive for most of the service.  I think we’ve found our new pew.
