Sermon Title: Singing a New Song

Scripture: Psalm 33:1-5, 20-22; Acts 16:25-32; Luke 5:33-39

The call of the Psalmist to “sing a new song,” points to times when new expressions of worship and praise are needed. According to Jesus, his followers are not to be bound the old, but open to the new ways God is moving in the world. As our congregation is poised to call a new Minister of Music, we will ponder what this new chapter might mean for our worship, faith, mission, and song.

Deuteronomy 30:15-20
1 Corinthians 3:1-9
Matthew 5:21-26

Jesus warns that unrestrained anger makes one “liable to judgment” (Mt. 5:21). Unless such anger is examined, tested, and winnowed, it can destroy relationships and community. Thankfully, Jesus teaches us what to do when we’re “mad as hell.”
