Sermon Series and Suggested Reading by Dr. Bill McNabb
NO SUCH THING AS NORMAL
Have you ever found yourself feeling that you were the “normal” person and the other people around you were weird? It’s a pretty common human feeling. With maturity and wisdom we can come to see and appreciate the uniqueness (weirdness) in everyone including ourselves. In this series we will talk about the deep longing we have to connect to other people, how we can trade judgmentalism for acceptance, and the secret of a loving heart. As an added bonus we will find out how porcupines make love. (Very carefully) – Begins April 22, 2018
A lot of things are said and done in the name of Christianity that I think God would find frankly, embarrassing. In this series we look at how to be a Christian without being weird, how to be rich and be a christian, how prayer works, and how to prepare for death in a meaningful way. Based on a book by Tony Campolo Following Jesus Without Embarrasing God.
SPIRITUAL HUNGER IN AN AGE OF PLENTY
By almost all indicators (disposable income, longevity and health, etc.) life has never been better in America. And yet many people find themselves dissatisfied and even depressed by life. It’s like we have more of everything except happiness. In this series we will look at how gratitude, service and community are essential to the fulfilled life. Based on the book by Greg Easterbrook The Progress Paradox:How Life Gets Better While People Feel Worse and Barry Schwartz’s The Paradox of Choice: Why Less is More.
DEEP JOY FOR A SHALLOW WORLD
In this 4 part series we examine Paul’s letter to the Philippians – one of the most joyous and upbeat books in the Bible. Paul encourages Christians to not panic even though we live in a pretty scary world and he shares the secret of being happy regardless of the circumstances of our life. His words of encouragement and inspiration are as relevant to us and our world as they were two thousand years ago.
