  • Helping Each Other: Part 3 - Offering Spiritual Support

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 3 Sep, 2017

    In this sermon we are concluding the Helping Each Other series by talking about how to offer spiritual support. It sounds so good–offering spiritual support. And it is so good and can make such a difference when it’s done well. But offering spiritual support can also be done badly–people can be arrogant, controlling, clueless, etc. in the ways they approach "trying to help" and they can end up actually making things worse. But the answer isn’t that we should stop trying. Let’s learn what the Lord teaches about how to avoid common pitfalls and how we can best approach offering spiritual support to others.

  • Helping Each Other: Part 2 - Getting Spiritual Support

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 27 Aug, 2017

    We know that the Lord has created us to love others; but what about ourselves? Can that love also be from the Lord? All of us have needs that must be met but it can be hard to ask for help. We worry about putting a burden on others or opening ourselves up to criticism. Yet the Lord is clear that we are to love ourselves. If we cannot love ourselves enough to get the help that we need, we lose the ability to help others. When we ask for help we are not being selfish, but rather are taking the first steps towards helping others.

  • Retaliation, and Taking Risks to Give

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 13 Aug, 2017

    When people offend us or attack our intentions or motives, what should we do? Our tendency is to hit back, but He has a better way. And why did He say we should turn the other cheek? Did He mean it literally? | By Rt. Rev. Peter Martin Buss, Sr. , Westville, RSA

  • Heavenly Union - Part 2 - Marriage on Earth

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 6 Aug, 2017

    Last week we looked at the marriage that exists between love and wisdom. This marriage is not static but exists in a continuous cycle: love motivates us to seek wisdom, wisdom teaches us to express love, and that love in turn motivates us to seek even more wisdom. This week we will explore this cycle and how it expresses itself in the marriages that we see around us. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • Heavenly Union - Part 1 - Spiritual Balance

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 30 Jul, 2017

    Everything in the universe reflects the Divine marriage between Love and Wisdom. Without these two qualities everything would fall apart. Over the next two weeks we will be exploring this union. This week, we will focus on our need to marry love with wisdom if we want to be truly useful. Either one on its own is weak, but together they can do amazing things. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • Why Heaven and Hell are Relevant Today - Part 2 Hell

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 23 Jul, 2017

    Hell is something a lot of people would rather not think about and not talk about. And it makes sense: who would want to contemplate the idea that they or people they love might end up in a place of suffering for eternity? That's terrifying. But ignoring hell or pretending like it doesn't exist also doesn't work. Just like we talked about last week with heaven, hell is a reality that we can experience on a daily basis and so we need to look at it squarely and try to understand how best to deal with it. That's what we're going to try to do on Sunday. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Why Heaven and Hell are Relevant Today - Part 1 Heaven

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 16 Jul, 2017

    Heaven and hell can seem like fuzzy, distant, old-fashioned ideas - something from a different era, like fairytales with heroes and monsters. A lot of people today aren't sure that heaven and hell even exist and those that do think they exist often think of them as something that will only be relevant later in life, when they're getting ready to die. The New Church perspective is that heaven and hell are realities that we deal with every day and that what we believe about them can have a profound impact on our lives. Come and hear the New Church perspective on heaven this Sunday. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Fear - Both Hellish and Heavenly

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 2 Jul, 2017

    We tend to become paralyzed when we feel fear. It holds us back from taking risks. But the Lord says do not be afraid. Even when the storms of life rage around us we have nothing to fear. In contrast is Holy Fear: this is the fear that we might let harm come to things that are good. When we feel this fear it does not paralyze us. Instead it inspires and empowers us to protect the good things in our lives. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • An Open Invitation - Part 4 - An Open Door

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 18 Jun, 2017

    This Sunday we conclude our series on the letters to the seven churches. We have explored how each church stands for some quality that the Lord wants us to work on so that we can enter His kingdom. The last two churches are Philadelphia and Laodicea, which stands for the best and worst of humanity. In both cases the Lord uses the imagery of a door: for the first, an open door that no one can shut; for the second, a closed door that He is eager to enter through. The lesson for us is that no matter where we are spiritually, the Lord is putting before us a path that leads to heaven. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA
