So we’re down to only 8 days late at this point, and I think I should be able to stay up to date enough to post a sermon ever week. We’ll see.
Either way, here is Psator Matthew Bucher from the 25th of October with a message on the temptations of Christ.
And yesterday, November 1st, Emily Peck-McClain spoke to us about Christ’s selective silence as his best defense in court.
So this post has been in the works a while. It’s a shock what a newborn will do to your plans and your free time.
On September 20th, World Peace Sunday, our sermon was brought by our own Matthew Bucher talking about God Overcoming Boundaries through the juxtaposition of Power and Posture. Good luck slouching while you listen to it.
On September 27th, Matthew spoke to us about Enabling Transformation. I still have yet to see that dedicated time show up on my Google calendar.
October 5th I wasn’t able to record. It was morning number 2 in the hospital after my son’s birth.
And on October 11th, John Swartz, recent EMS graduate, brought the message on Jesus’ touching natures. Listen to him weave an episode of Seinfeld into the story of the healing of a leprous man.
Immanuel has been a powerhouse full of preaching in the past few weeks.
First, August the 16th, Our own Pastor Matthew Bucher, rephrasing our understanding of Thanksgiving.
Next, on August the 30th, local missionary Seth Crissman shared about local Kid’s Clubs and storytelling.
On September the 6th, the message was brought by EMU’s own Nancy Heisey. (Note, the sound is a bit low on this one.)
And finally, on today, September the 13th, Matthew Bucher’s installation as lead pastor was done by Charlottesville Mennonite’s Roy Hange, who is also Overseer for the Central District. This recording is long because it continues through the rest of the service to include the installation.
Today’s message was related to the arrival of the Holy Spirit during Pentecost, and the Scriptures were Acts 2:1-21 and John 15:26-16:15. The speaker was our Interim Pastor, J. Mark Frederick.

After the sermon, the congregation responded to the question “Where do you see Jesus’ comfort and encouragement?”
Feel free to comment below.
This morning when I picked up the recorder, I realized that I had forgotten to publish last Sunday’s sermon.
The theme for Ascension Sunday was “Why Are You Looking Up,” and the message was brought by Jerry Holsopple.

I’ll try to get today’s sermon up in a more timely manner.
Today’s speaker was Steve Dintamin speaking on “Learning to Abide.”
Scriptures used this morning include Psalm 22:25-31, 1 John 4:7-21, and John 15:1-8 and 11.
Note that when Steve refers to “loving these” he was holding up a pair of pruning shears.
