#3: Cultivating Contentment

We’ve all just been through the devastation caused by Hurricane Ian. We’ve been distraught by seeing images of entire towns destroyed in Southwest Florida, and by how many homes in Volusia County have been flooded. For the past month, we have all driven by huge mounds of people’s water-soaked and moldy possessions piled high by…

Sermon #2: “Wisdom with Finances”

Last Sunday, we began a five week worship emphasis called “Enough,” developed by Adam Hamilton of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection in Kansas City.1 The purpose of this emphasis is to “help us discover joy through simplicity and generosity,” and to gain control of our finances instead of buying into the dominant culture…
