A sermon for Ash Wednesday. (The first day of Lent).Continue reading
Reconciliation is a process that takes two and takes effort. How does the process work when the one we want to reconcile with is God? With whom is God willing to be reconciled? What has he done to make it possible? What is expected of you?
Seven Things Jesus Said from the Cross, Part 1
Audio Sermon on Luke 23:33-35
Who was Jesus asking God to forgive? It wasn’t just the soldier pounding in the nails! There were others on His mind that day, too. Since his resurrection he continues to intercede for those who need God’s forgiveness. In this sermon from Ash Wednesday (2016), Pastor Hinkle encourages listeners to consider their own need for forgiveness and explains why God forgives and how He communicates that forgiveness to those who need it.

During the season of Lent we gather each Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm for worship and meditation on Christ’s passion. The season begins with a communion service with imposition of ashes (a sign of repentance) on the 17th of February. The meditation will be on the Christ’s prayer that God would forgive those who crucified him.
The remaining Wednesday evening services will be shorter services of prayer and preaching that follow the order of Vespers. Each will include a reading from an account of Christ’s passion drawn from the four gospels. The sermons will cover the various things Christ said as he suffered upon the cross.
