Love Your Neighbour as Yourself

 

Speaker: Sherri Guenther Trautwein

 

Scripture:  James 2:1-13

 

In the second chapter of James, we find familiar words, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.” And this, following a conversation about not showing favortism. What does it look like to stop “playing favorites”? And, perhaps even more difficult, what does it mean to “love your neighbour as yourself“? We’ll spend some time reflecting on these questions and how James’ teaching for early Christians still has resonance for us today.

The Bible Tells Me So

 

Speaker: Paul Cumin

 

Scripture:  James 1:19-27

 

James compares listening to God’s word to seeing oneself in a mirror. Sometimes the mirror is so beautiful, so powerful, so strange or so ornate that we can become distracted by all that from what a mirror is actually for.

On this special week, we are prepared to receive new members into our congregation. We will invite them each to share a little bit about how God has worked in their lives. Please come ready to encourage them, even as they encourage and bless us.

Living Stones: Ethnicity and Identity as God’s Holy People

 

Speaker: Michael VandenEnden

Scripture: 1 Peter 2:1-10

 

At a time when Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation, the Epistle of 1 Peter reminds Christians that their truest “national” and “ethnic” identity is with the people of God.  This sermon explores contemporary issues related to the call to be God’s people in the world, and challenges the listener to embrace the their faith identity in all spheres of life.

Principled Living the Jesus Way; The Principle of Security

 

Speaker: Henry Janzen

 

Text: James 3:1-18

 

What spiritual principles should guide our choices in life? What is the compass by which we make day to day decisions? Jesus said that in order to follow him we must be willing to sacrifice even family and family events.

 

The message will focus on the first of four principles by which all Christians should make decisions in life….the principle of security. Jesus and other biblical writers said that we should be careful in our words. Today’s message will show how we can do that in everyday situations.
