Yesterday's sermon at our church was on the early church and specifically what it can teach about church planting today. Our interim pastor focused on the church at Antioch as described in Acts 11:19-30:

The Church in Antioch
19 Those who had been scattered as a result of the persecution that started because of Stephen made their way as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus, and Antioch, speaking the message to no one except Jews. 20 But there were some of them, Cypriot and Cyrenian men, who came to Antioch and began speaking to the Hellenists,[a][b] proclaiming the good news about the Lord Jesus. 21 The Lord’s hand was with them, and a large number who believed turned to the Lord. 22 Then the report about them was heard by the church that was at Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to travel[c] as far as Antioch. 23 When he arrived and saw the grace of God, he was glad and encouraged all of them to remain true to the Lord with a firm resolve of the heart, 24 for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And large numbers of people were addedto the Lord. 25 Then he[d] went to Tarsus to search for Saul, 26 and when he found him he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught large numbers. The disciples were first called Christians at Antioch.

Famine Relief
27 In those days some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch.28 Then one of them, named Agabus, stood up and predicted by the Spirit that there would be a severe famine throughout the Roman world.[e] This took place during the time of Claudius.[f] 29 So each of the disciples, according to his ability, determined to send relief to the brothers who lived in Judea. 30 They did this, sending it to the elders by means of Barnabas and Saul.

Continuing in the You, Me, and Family series, this weekend's sermon was on Marriage and Romance. Sermon wasn't just for married folks, of course. It was really good. Embed as always!

Good stuff thx for posting! I don't always watch the videos, but I watched this one. I never really thought of the Single life as a time for preparation for Marriage in that way. Great inspiration!

This week was Marriage and Money. Spectre-6 was fussier than usual, so we weren't able to catch as much of it (by ability to hear or ability to focus) as we'd like. But, as usual, here's an embed!

Our interim pastor taught on the 3 "lost" parables in Luke 15 (the missing sheep, the missing coin, and the prodigal son). He taught on what the 3 parables had in common as well as what was different. He offered some fresh perspective on the parable of the prodigal son and highlighted the elder son's failures, both in terms of actions and attitude.

Yesterday was Parenting and Children. Comically, I wasn't able to actually listen (listening to the video now) because I had to hang out in the hall to take care of a fussy Spectre-6 while my wife was working in kids ministry. haha

Our interim pastor taught on 1 Thessalonians 5:16-19 this past Sunday and expounded on the commands, "Rejoice always," "pray without ceasing," and "in everything, give thanks."

I keep looking at the misspelling in the title of the video (no worries, @Kendrik, you spelled marriage correctly in your post) and I think my right eye just started twitching. :|

Our interim pastor taught on 2 Corinthians 9:6-14 this morning. It's a text that I'd sometimes heard twisted to the speaker's ends in a previous church I attended (which trended heavily toward "Prosperity Gospel" teaching), so it was refreshing to get a more grounded take on the passage in its context. Yes, money is indeed addressed in the chapter, but God desires more of us than our money. He desires our obedience and trust. He provides the "seed"--whether money, skill, time, energy, or whatever other resources we have at our disposal--and we decide how much of those resources to give toward His Kingdom. It was a very challenging message for a person who's terribly frugal on all fronts and very protective of his (admittedly very little) free time.
