Our theme for 2019 comes from Luke 1:1, and is "Things Most Surely Believed." The beloved physician (Colossians 4:14) and most capable historian wrote his gospel to present an orderly account of things that were accomplished among them. Luke was not an eye-witness, but interviewed many eye-witnesses to assemble this longest (by word count) of the gospels.
In our post-modern age, facts are readily dismissed as opinions, as though we individually have the right to pick and choose what facts we accept. The gospels of our Lord and Savior are presented as facts; things most surely believed.
We will explore this theme in the sermon on the first Sunday of each month this year. Audio recordings of these sermons will be available.
