Last Sermon of the School Year


The gift of a good friend is a beautiful thing. But what happens when instead of rejoicing in a deepening friendship, you find yourself feeling left out and lonely? In our hyperconnected digital age, this can happen more often than we admit. And it is real. Some have felt so alone and brokenhearted that they are even willing to end their life.

While I hope that the church is a safe place for all people who are suffering, even more powerful is the God who maintains it. Christ’s wounds have the power to heal, his promises are sure footing to stand on, and his unconditional love can inspire our greatest confidence in whom God made us to be. When the world robs and depletes, Christ offers us the free gift of abundant life through faith and community.

Join me as I preach my final sermon for this school year this Sunday, June 3rd at 5 PM at Central Presbyterian Church in Summit, NJ. My message will conclude the church's Book and a Bible sermon series as I pull insight from a third New York Times bestseller — Lysa TerKeurst’s Uninvited. You, friend, are definitely invited, whether in person or through my on demand sermon to come.

Watch May's Sermon on Life Purpose


Do you wonder what living your life purpose looks like for you?

How can you identify the steps toward identifying and actualizing that vision?

Where can one find encouragement for that often hard, but rewarding journey?

To answer these questions and more, watch my most recent sermon on demand through HomeTowne TV. I draw upon insights from my own research and acclaimed author Parker Palmer's book Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation. Palmer's book continues our church's Book and a Bible sermon series.

Watch My Sermon Response to "The Collapse of Parenting" Now!


If you watched my interview with the New York Times bestselling author Dr. Leonard Sax, or if you are curious as to what his book is about and how it connects to faith, I invite you to watch my most recent sermon:

Watch HERE

Dr. Sax is the author of The Collapse of Parenting: How We Hurt Our Kids When We Treat Them Like Grown-Ups. He is a graduate of MIT who earned his MD and PhD in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. His book is based upon over 90,000 office visits as a board-certified family physician, and the data he’s gathered by speaking with children, parents, and school administrators from around the world. His data has led him to one conclusion: We are witnessing the full-blown collapse of parenting today. He cites rising anxiety, depression, obesity, medication, and dropout rates in children, for instance. Meanwhile, American schools and job placement rates are slipping in international rankings. Each of these effects can be statistically traced back to diluted parental authority, Dr. Sax argues. He offers parents a lifeline into how to counter culture's current trend and safeguard the future success of their families. Faith offers parents an additional lifeline to Dr. Sax's research too — watch to find out how!

Local friends, I'm preaching this Sunday evening, 5/6, at 5 PM at Central Presbyterian Church in Summit! I'll be continuing Central's "Book and a Bible" sermon series by talking about living our life purpose. Hope to see you there!
