  • 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

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 26 Oct, 2014

    In the book of Genesis we are told that on the seventh day God rested from all the work which He had done (Genesis 2:2).

  • The Tender Plant

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 12 Oct, 2014

    Today is part two of our three part series on the story of creation. In general, the Biblical story of creation is not about the creation of the physical world. It is written as a kind of parable that has a deeper meaning. In its spiritual sense the Biblical story of creation is about our own spiritual rebirth - Seven days representing seven stages that we all go through as the Lord works to create us anew. This morning we will be focusing on the third day of creation...Here are some of the images we will reflect on today: 1) Gathering together of water... 2) Tender plants... 3) Repentance... | By Matthew Genzlinger, West Concord, MA

  • Let there be light!

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 5 Oct, 2014

    One of the wonderful realities that can bring life and relevance to our reading of the Scriptures, is the fact that every story in the Lord's Word contains a spiritual sense - a deeper meaning. Much like the parables of the the New Testament, the creation story from the book of Genesis has also been given to us as a kind of parable. This morning we are beginning a three part series during which we will explore the spiritual sense of the seven days of creation, with today's focus being on Day 1 - Let there be light and Day 2 - Waters below and above... | By Matthew Genzlinger, West Concord, MA

  • Thou Shalt Not Covet - Casting Back Evil

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 14 Sep, 2014

    The last of the Ten Commandments involves not coveting. According to the Heavenly Doctrines by commanding us not to covet, the Lord is warning us not to allow evils to enter into our will. Why? Because when we allow evils to enter into our will, they then become a part of us. This morning we will explore the meaning of this commandment in a little more detail. One of the things we will discover is that thinking about evil is very different from willing evil... | By Matthew Genzlinger, West Concord, MA

  • The Lord's Word - A Book Of Hope

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 7 Sep, 2014

    There are many things that can make us feel hopeless. The cause of these feelings is spiritual. It is the evil spirits and the general influx of hell into our hearts and minds that fill us with feelings of hopelessness and despair. The hells love it when we hold on to a negative attitude and feel like all hope is lost! Thankfully the Lord is always working to counter the Influence of the hells in our lives by providing us with thoughts and feelings of hope... | By Matthew Genzlinger, West Concord, MA
