November 25, 2018—Last Sunday after Pentecost/ Christ the King Sunday

Scriptures:  Jeremiah 32:1-15; John 18:33-37

Sermon Title:  “GROUND ZERO”

Sermon Synopsis: There is so much tragedy and destruction in this world.  How can we really believe that God is in control?  Our God does not reign from a throne but from a cross.  God does not abandon us to our baser instincts.  Instead God came to us and dwelt among us to bring us hope.

Sermon Text:  Pilate asked him, “ So you are a king? “  Jesus answered, “ You  say that I am a king.  For I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth.  Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.” John 18:37 (NRSV)
