Sermons

Preaching sermons that are relevant, thought-provoking, and that express the transformative love of God has always been an important part of worship in the Presbyterian Church (USA). Laura’s sermons seek to do those things through sermons that are anchored in the Bible; see through the lens of God’s inclusive love; and either comfort, challenge, educate, and most often explore with curiosity what it means to be a Christian in the 21st century. Sermon series have included: “Where is God?” (finding God in “non-churchy” things); “Skeptics Welcome” (exploring misconceptions about difficult biblical texts); and “Disciplines of the Heart” (spiritual disciplines).
In response to COVID-19, recent sermons are live-streamed videos on Sundays at 10 am and the live-stream sermons and other recordings can be found on the Wheat Ridge Presbyterian Facebook page.
