Sermons on Corinthians

Easter Sunday

Readings: Is. 25:6-9, 1 Cor. 15:1-11 & Mk. 16:1-8 As I sat down to write this sermon, I was feeling very angry. I’d had an experience with some people, who are not involved with the church in any way, which had made me feel like there was something wrong with me, for dedicating my life to God. And it brought back memories…

Maundy Thursday

Readings: Ex. 12:1-4, 11-14, 1 Cor. 11:23-26 & Jn. 13:1-17, 31b-35 What is the significance of Maundy Thursday to the Christian faith?

The First Sunday in Advent

Readings: Is. 64:1–9, 1 Cor. 1:1–9, Mk. 13:24–37. This morning, I would like you to cast your mind back to the story of the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. What followed the Exodus, was the revelation of God to Moses and the people of Israel, at Mount Sinai, when (to quote Ex 19:18): “the mountain trembled at the presence of God”…
