SERMONS @ PWUMC

TO KNOW CHRIST; TO LOVE CHRIST; TO MAKE THE LOVE OF CHRIST KNOWN

Through the messages given here at PWUMC we grow in knowledge concerning Jesus our Savior, and not only knowledge, but we grow closer to Him, the risen Lord. At the same time His love is taught and our response is that we love Him all the more. Perhaps most important, for our world, which, is beautiful and at the same time full of hurt and hopelessness; the messages given here proclaim the Love of Jesus in ways that bring hope to the hopeless, and strength to those

who are weak. 


Join in on this life transforming conversation by watching the messages here yourself, and then take the next step, share what you find here with someone you love!


But have reverence for Christ in your hearts, and honour him as Lord. Be ready at all times to answer anyone who asks you to explain the hope you have in you,” (1 Peter 3:15, GNB)



But how can they call to him for help if they have not believed? And how can they believe if they have not heard the message? And how can they hear if the message is not proclaimed?” (Romans 10:14, GNB)

Up coming sermon series

Another Door Opens

a sermon series for Advent and Christmas

based on the tradition of Las Posadas

 

Before Jesus is born, the Gospel of Luke tells us that Mary and Joseph traveled from their hometown of Nazareth to Bethlehem in order to be counted for Caesar Augustus’s tax list. Even though Mary is close to giving birth, she and Joseph are unable to find a guest room in someone’s home; and so, Jesus is born in a barn. Las Posadas, a Hispanic tradition, began in the Mexican church of the 1500’s and reenacts the Holy Family’s attempt to find a room in someone’s home where Jesus may be born.


As a way to anticipate the birth of the Savior, commemorate the nine months when Mary carried the infant Jesus in her womb, emphasize Jesus’s coming again and the need of all persons for repentance and God's mercy, Las Posadas is celebrated for the 9 nights before Christmas Day. Members of the community dress up as Mary and Joseph, shepherds, wise men, and others and knock on the door of a home each night asking for entrance as the Holy Family, who need a place of rest and welcome. Presumably, many doors were closed in their faces as they were told, “There is no room.” In the Las Posadas celebration, we are reminded that Christ seeks to come into our homes and into our hearts.


Entering the season of Advent and preparing for Christmas, we will join together in worship to hear the invitation of Jesus, “I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me.” (Rev. 3:20) We will also hear the words of those who prepared the way for Jesus: the Prophets, John the Baptist, and Mary. Our hope in this season is that Christ will prepare our hearts to receive Him – into our homes and into our hearts.
