Six Week Sermon Series

Starting April 18, 2021

This series is based on the book 

Words of Life: Jesus and the Promise of the
Ten Commandments Today.

by Adam Hamilton

In this book of scripture and inspiration, bestselling author Adam Hamilton brings modern eyes to the most famous set of rules in history, recovering the Ten Commandments as more than just a set of onerous prohibitions. He considers the commandments in their historical context, unpacking the meaning of each commandment in Hebrew, how Jesus reinterpreted them, and how Jews and Christians have understood them over the millennia. He also explores how the latest research in science and psychology illuminates these commandments, rightly understood as a way of ordering one's life beautifully in the present day. In a culture marked by workaholism, materialism, and social media-driven envy, God has given us a time-tested path that leads to gratitude, confidence, and peace.

April 18:  “Words of Life: First and Second Commandment” Exodus 20: 1-6

April 25: “Words of Life: Third and Fourth Commandment” Exodus 20: 7-11
