Sunday, August 4 - Premeditatio Malorum

Erin Padgett

Premeditatio Malorum or “What’s the Worst That Could Happen”? Greek philosophy blended with the Christian faith early. We see that blend and wonder even in the formation of our current scripture. However, on the above question, scripture and philosophy differ. Stoics in particular were taught to meditate on the worst that could happen. The Scripture on the other hand reassures us of God’s watch, care, and providence over us that is past our understanding. We can trust in God’s care for us in all circumstance. My prayer for you on this Sunday is to “Trust in the Lord with all your Heart and Lean Not on your own understanding”.

Psalm 91:1-16

Sunday, July 14 - Relying on God

Erin Padgett

“The Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline.” There is a Spirit within that God gives. When we rely on that “wind within” we have a power “greater than ourselves”. This wisdom is the heart of the twelve-step program, and the heart of endurance and discipline for the Christian.

2 Timothy 1:7

Sunday, June 23 - Facing Adversity

Erin Padgett

This sermon could easily be called “The obstacle is the Way” or “The myth of easy Obedience”. Mary says to the angel “Let it be with me according to your word”. Her son, raised by her said, “Nevertheless” to God. Facing Adversity because it is the right thing is different. Purposeless hard is different than hard for a purpose.

Luke 1:38
