Recent Preaching and Teaching

I taught Wednesday night Bible Study at our church, Christus Victor Lutheran, for four nights in January and February. The series was called 'The Unbelievable Stories of Jesus' and featured four parables where Jesus exaggerated to make His point. Three of those were recorded. Note: there is some dialogue with the socially-distanced attendees that the mics didn't pick up very well.

Then I preached a sermon entitled 'Why are bad things good and good things bad?' on February 13. Here's a link to the video on YouTube (beginning with the reading of the Gospel):

Here's a link to manuscript if you'd like to read it: There are some notes in the manuscript that did not make it into the sermon.
