Sermons at Abiding Presence are based on the readings from scripture that day. These readings come from the Narrative Lectionary. The sermons help us to connect scripture to our present lives. Pastor Sharon shares the historical context of scripture and explores how we can live the good news in our individual lives today. A sermon is a three-way conversation between God, worshippers, and the preacher.
Members of the congregation or the pastor invite children to the front of the church to share the theme of the day’s scripture. Once the pandemic is over, we hope to resume having the children collect a Noisy Offering of loose change from the congregation each week to donate to a charity they have chosen.
