  • Being Content With Our Daily Bread

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 31 Jan, 2016

  • The Philistines Return the Ark

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 24 Jan, 2016

    Last week we explored the story of the Philistines capturing the ark of the Covenant and the terrible things that happened to them because of it. The Philistines represent a faith that is devoid of love and charity. The terrible things that happened to them represent the spiritual damage that we do to ourselves when we separate faith from charity. This morning we will continue this story and read about how the Philistines eventually chose to return the Ark of the Covenant to its rightful owner - the Children of Israel. The story of how they did this is filled with wonderful representations of how the Lord leads us away from the destructive life of faith alone, and towards a life where faith and charity are conjoined. Three images stand out: 1. The Philistines built a new cart to carry the Ark back to Israel... 2. They made five golden tumors and five golden mice... 3. They yoked two milk cows to the cart... This week reflect on the rich image of how the Philistines returned the Ark of the Covenant to Israel. How is this an image of the Lord inviting us to escape a faith alone existence? How does the Lord lead us to conjoin our faith with a life of love and charity? | By Matthew Genzlinger, West Concord, MA

  • Sitting on a Donkey

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 29 Mar, 2015

    The image of the Lord riding into Jerusalem on a donkey is one that most people recognize as a symbol of royalty. Palm Sunday is in part about recognizing the Lord as our eternal King. However, the Heavenly Doctrines help us to understand this image and how the Lord is our King on much more profound level... | By Matthew Genzlinger, West Concord, MA

  • What is Your Excuse?

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 22 Mar, 2015

    The Lord often used parables in order to communicate life changing truths. This morning we will be reading a parable that teaches us wonderful lessons abut our tendency to make excuses. In this parable a man (the Lord) makes a great supper and invites many. Sadly, those who are invited begin to make excused for why they cannot come... | By Matthew Genzlinger, West Concord, MA

  • I was Hungry And You Gave Me Food

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 1 Feb, 2015

    This week we are beginning a seven part series on the following words from Matthew 25: "For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me." (Matthew 25:35-36) According to the Heavenly Doctrines, on a spiritual level, these verses describe what charity is in its essence and how we should practice charity in the life we live. We all know that living a life of charity is important. But how exactly do we do this?...

  • Solomon's Wise Attitudes

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 9 Nov, 2014

    Every day we are faced with choices. No mater how big or small those choices may be, our goal is to make them wisely. In part, we make wise choices when we act based upon the Lord's definition of what is good and true, and not on our own. Solomon showed this wisdom when he said to the Lord, "Give your servant and understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil."...This morning we will use the story of Solomon asking for wisdom to reflect on various attitudes that can help us make wise choices. No mater what specific decision lies before us, approaching it with the right attitude can make all the difference... | By Matthew Genzlinger, West Concord, MA
