Burning Question Series


An ongoing series.  The congregation requested sermons that related to questions of faith they had.  Frequently a card for them to write the questions that are on their mind is included in the Sunday bulletin. The sermons are not intended for academic publication, so sources are not footnoted nor documented.  I sit on the shoulders of giants, and am indebted to so many who are not named.
