Clint Wilson: How To Hate Your Family

9/9/2019
More
It might be that for many of us, in order to take up our cross, we need to put down our phone. In order to take up our cross, we need to put down the cocktail glass. And yes, in order to take up our cross, we need to let go of our children, family or our friends. But if we do this in the way that God envisions, we will gain them back again, and more. They will not then be products of our making, but vessels of God’s divine providence, whom we have nourished and loved and discipled, to be...

Leigh Spruill: Getting Close to God

9/3/2019
More
We are never closer to Christ than when we come before him stripped of pretense, confessing that our lives are filled with all kinds of waywardness, and trusting that this is precisely when we stand closest to the cross. Sermon from the 8:45am service on 9/1/19.

Duration:00:13:50

Clint Wilson: Becoming A Church Of Hospitality

9/3/2019
More
The call of the Church is rooted in the gracious hospitality of God the Father, who has invited us into his household of Faith, which has Christ as the chief cornerstone. This call especially takes on substance in our midst when we practice the theological virtue of hospitality — of welcoming the stranger. Sermon from The Table on 9/1/19.

Richard Kew: Listening to Jeremiah, and Looking to Jesus

8/27/2019
More
We will be rightly excited and proud of what’s going on at St. George’s. Yet that does not give us a pass from humble obedience, persistent prayer, committed discipleship, and listening to what God wants us to do with this facility that God has given to us. Sermon from the 8:45am service on 8/25/19.

Martin Odidi: The Spiritual Dimension of Worship

8/27/2019
More
A worship service or liturgy is meant to connect worshipers to the spiritual dimension of the real presence of God. This is where communion takes place between mortals and the Immortal. Through communion with the Holy Spirit, miracles occur, the sick receive healing, the depressed and oppressed receive relief and freedom, and the demon-possessed receive liberation of their body and soul. Sermon from The Table on 8/25/19.

Leigh Spruill: So Great A Cloud Of Witnesses

8/19/2019
More
The ultimate measure of success will be this: a faithful local community that feels like family willingly, courageously, generously, lovingly, trustingly joining together with each other and with those who have gone before us, knowing there are those who must come after us; committing to this ministry for the sake of Christ, for the future of his church, for the future of God’s mission for the world, for the sake of the world. And I cannot think of anything more inspiring or more exciting...

Clint Wilson: Giving up on Performance

8/19/2019
More
In light of a suicide epidemic, and a mental health crisis, and off the charts loneliness, we must recognize that we need each other! There is much to celebrate as we break ground today, but let’s commit also to breaking open the ground of our hearts. Let’s build a church that gives up on performance, and looks instead to Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith. Sermon from The Table on 8/18/19.

Micah Latimer-Dennis: Ready For Jesus

8/12/2019
More
It pleases God to give us the infinite gift of the kingdom. But it does not always please us to accept this gift. To accept it, we know we must make room in our hearts. W.H. Auden once wrote that “The desires of the heart are as crooked as corkscrews.” As we push deeper into our hearts, we discover that what we desire spirals back and forth between God and the things that keep us from God. Sermon from the 10:00am service on 8/11/19. Micah Latimer-Dennis served as our 2019 summer intern.

Duration:00:11:01

Leigh Spruill: On Big Barns and a Bigger Life

8/5/2019
More
The real failure of the Rich Foolish Farmer in all of us is that despite the big barns we have built for ourselves, despite the countless days devoted only to storing up figurative crops to secure our futures, we fail in thinking to take off our shoes, having forgotten we are always walking on holy ground, to trust the presence and provision and purposes of God in all of life. Sermon from the 10:00am service on 8/4/19.

Duration:00:17:58

Micah Latimer-Dennis: In God’s Hands

8/5/2019
More
The only way to be free in the present is to trust God, because God is our loving parent, from whom we came and to whom we will return. Sermon from The Table on 8/4/19 on Hosea 11:1-11.

Martin Odidi: The Mystery of Prayer

7/31/2019
More
"Prayer is a mystery; an inexplicable fact. It was John Wesley/St. Augustine who said "without God, man cannot, and without man, God cannot." Wesley also says that it appears as if God cannot intervene in human history without prayers from humans. Prayer has effects and bears marks on the one who prays. The effects of prayer are positive changes in the atmosphere, environment and human lives within the vicinity of prayer. The marks of prayer are positive changes in the character of the one...

Margery Kennelly: Our Father through Jesus

7/29/2019
More
“When Jesus taught his disciples how to approach God, he wanted them to know that despite God’s power and perfect holiness, he loves us tenderly and personally and gently.” Sermon from the 10:00am service on 7/28/19

Duration:00:17:15

Clint Wilson: Following Jesus In An Age Of Distraction

7/22/2019
More
“You see, the problem with distractions is that we cannot cultivate a contemplative life—one established securely in Christ, like Mary—if we are not present to the world as it is right in front of us. If I am always itching to be somewhere that more nearly matches my own desires, then I simply reinforce what is going on internally, and I don’t have a relationship to what is going on externally in my immediate surroundings. Distractions play into our unsettled hearts. A restless and...

Leigh Spruill: To Be A Christian Neighbor

7/15/2019
More
God has an extraordinary purpose for us in these times: to be as the Good Samaritan to those near us, to help heal the wounds in our fractured society. More than ever, we are called to the places that we can actually influence – the people God has physically placed around us, next door and across the street, literally! – such that isolation gives way to neighborliness, loneliness gives way to friendship, and habitual absence gives way to faithful presence. Sermon from The Table and the...

Kristine Blaess: Following To Go Forth

7/8/2019
More
How is it that Jesus is calling to you, “Come, follow me?” He loves you, and so surely he is calling you to come closer to him. And how is he calling you, “Go forth for me?” The world needs you – it needs the healing, the binding up, the setting free, the new life that your words and your life can bring. Sermon from the 10:00am service on 7/7/19.

Duration:00:15:08

Michael Blaess: Leaving Everything And Gaining Everything

7/1/2019
More
The power of God’s kingdom is so amazing, so life-transforming, Jesus is saying, “Do not let anything stand in your way of being a part of it.” Jesus is calling us to leave behind our old lives and follow him to a new life. What’s standing in your way? For this new life, what is Jesus challenging you to do – to give up – to leave behind? Sermon from the 10:00am service on 6/30/19.
