The Worthy Shepherd

The Worthy Shepherd

In this message, Pastor David Ball helps us understand the good, and worthy Shepherd. And distinguish Him from the hired hand whom Jesus identifies in Scripture. The hired hand is in all things unworthy. But Sheep have to choose, they cannot survive on their own. Choosing the hired hand by putting first career, family, money […]

Too Good NOT to Be True

Too Good NOT to Be True

All too often we receive an offer that seems too good to be true, too many strings attached. This notion dates from the 1500s, when the plague filled decades and cruelly divided societies left men with no hope. But Pastor David Ball reminds us in this message that the cynicism of that phrase goes back […]

Peace for All Times

Peace for All Times

In this post-resurrection message, Pastor David Ball begins by pointing out the power of “3,” culturally — from the 3 Musketeers to the 3 parts of the judicial promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Even Jesus used the mysterious power of this way of making a point by […]

The Pathway to Peace

The Pathway to Peace

Pastor David Ball reminds us on this Palm Sunday, of the world’s desperate longing for peace. Too often that search overlooks the humble tableau of Jesus riding a lowly donkey through the streets of Jerusalem, the event commemorated on this day. According to scripture, those present that day proclaimed “peace in heaven,” the very throne-room […]

We Are Controlled by Our Lust for Control

We Are Controlled by Our Lust for Control

In this sermon, Pastor David Ball shifts his Lenten focus from the vertical relationships between God and His people to the horizontal plane where we relate to those around us. Picture kindergartners playing happily together on the playground. An inspiring sight, right? Look a little closer. One child is poking another in the eye. One […]

The Hide and Seek of Sin

The Hide and Seek of Sin

Recalling the popular childhood game of Hide and Seek, Pastor David Ball describes how the game paints a picture of Redemption. We hide and God seeks us out. Pastor David urges us to approach this interaction with God like toddlers playing that childhood game. May we tire of the hiding quickly and exclaim to Our […]

Disobedience of the Heart

Disobedience of the Heart

Pastor David Bell takes his Lenten Series on the True Nature of Sin a step further this week to look at disobedience. Basically, we want to call the shots in our lives, whereas God is in reality the only true self-determining creature. Prompted expertly by the serpent, Eve chose her own way, expecting to reap […]

The Path of Disbelief

The Path of Disbelief

In his second Lenten sermon on the true nature of sin, Pastor David Ball describes the Path of Disbelief, that route offered to Adam and Eve by the serpent. Using clever language the serpent sets them to slipping and sliding amid hints that God may not be as good or powerful as they think he […]

The Seeds of Doubt

The Seeds of Doubt

In the first message in the Lenten series Doubt, Disbelief, and Disobedience – The True Nature of Sin, Pastor David Ball reveals the strategy of the serpent in the Garden of Eden and the correlating insidiousness of sin that the serpent models. Sin teases, cajoles, perverts as did the serpent. This works itself out in our […]
