We also celebrated the Affirmation of Baptism (Confirmation) of seven great 10th graders this morning. Even with a small snow storm, it was a wonderful morning at Grace.
This year, I am doing both Confirmation and Senior High Youth group with a pastor of a three-point parish, so we have four congregations doing youth ministry together. It is working beautifully, and we have a lot of fun together.
Here are the first 8 sermons of my Acts series. The Sept. 21 sermon is the one I submitted for a class in the D.Min. program. It's not the best sermon, but I did a lot of exegesis work on the passage - and not many people write sermons on the story of Ananias and Sapphira (in case you've forgotten the story, it's a couple whom God strikes dead for lying about their church offering).
