When in Rome... beware of fools

We all do foolish things (I'll tell you about one of my more recent foolish moves).  But much more dangerous is the fool who is convinced that he is right.  Paul says that people who know God but refuse to glorify him or thank him, are fools.  That covers a lot of people.  It's not enough to acknowledge God's existence.  If that is what you think, then you have exchanged the truth for a lie.

When in Rome, follow your itinerary.

When we travel, we plan our trip carefully.  It's a good idea to know where you are going and what your are going to do when you get there.  Paul has his sights set on Rome, and he has some very specific things he wants to accomplish.  Join us this Sunday, Sept 20 at 10 a.m. as we continue our series, "When in Rome..."

When in Rome... consider the evidence

This Sunday we continue our sermon series, "When in Rome..."  We're having our annual outdoor service at the Mount Mary Retreat Centre in Ancaster, so we appropriately jump ahead to Romans 1:19, 20.  It is in the created world that God's "invisible qualities" are clearly seen.  Sure hope it doesn't rain, because we need to be outdoors for this message!  I will be referring to an interview with Francis Collins.  If you would like to check it out, you can find it here:
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday - bring a lawn chair.  Stay for lunch.  Sunday, Sept 13, 10 a.m.

When in Rome...

This Sunday, September 6, we begin a series of messages from Romans chapter 1.  In the first few verses, Paul holds out his passport for inspection.  And then the next question:  What is the purpose of your visit?  With Paul, we are called to share the Good News.  But if we want people to listen, we will have to gain the respect and confidence of our audience.  In other words, When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
