So, you want to help the people of God understand the big picture of creation, and where they fit in? Two sermon series, Christ & Creation by Dr. David Schmitt and In the Land of the Living by Rev. Joel Kurz, Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Warrensburg, Missouri. will bring this essential message to your weekly gatherings.
God's vision of creation is a true garden of delights for his people. This thoughtful series helps us redeemed sinners to live in the presence of our risen, ruling, and returning Savior who is bringing about the restoration of all things.
These sermons are designed to be used at four different seasonal times of the natural and Christian years. Each one incorporates all of the four readings in some way and is meant to be enriched by further textual study, personal reflection, and adaptation. Each offers a template for each season within an integrated thematic framework.
