Pastor Luke preaches from Romans 12:9–21 in “Scuttlebutt,” part 2 of his 5-part series “Loose Lips.”

During the season of Lent, we make an effort at repentance, at rethinking things related to God. We are focusing this year on the ten commandments, and particularly on the prohibition against giving false testimony. This might be the commandment most in peril in today’s culture. Why is that? Pastor Luke looks at 1 Kings 21:1–13 in “Loose Lips Can Sink Ships,” the first message in a new series “Loose Lips.”

When Jesus was transfigured, his disciples were puzzled about its significance. But they also learned something to help them when life gets perplexing. Pastor Luke looks at Mark 9:2–9 in “Perplexity.”
