I'm Back!

It's amazing how debilitating an unreliable internet connection can be. But enough of that.

A few weeks ago we met Rev. Clyde Griffith, pastor at The Connecting Place, through his blog Sez the Rev: Comments by the Pastor of The Connecting Place: a center of faith in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, USA, for Living Abundantly.

Today we have a new blog from Rev. Griffith, Connecting With The Faith: Sermons from The Connecting Place: Christ Presbyterian Church, a center of faith in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, USA.

"Here is where sermons are posted -- as heard by worshipers at The Connecting Place: Christ Presbyterian Church (a center of faith for abundant living) in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania -- a close-in suburb of Philadelphia. We see our church as The Connecting Place -- hoping to connect with folks who are tired of "bowling alone" and now seek more connection in their lives. Here folks connect with one another, connect with the world around them, and connect with God. By intention, all who seek to connect with a community of faith are welcome here. Our services are traditional in underlying design but progressive in content. Sacred texts are read in easy to understand translations. Congregational singing enhances the message of the day. Language descriptive of the Deity is carefully chosen to avoid anthropomorphization and ascribing gender. The sermons are designed and crafted to bring God's Word to bear on identified felt needs and are informed by the latest scholarship being published by The Jesus Seminar and others who seek to uncover the essence of the texts that have been passed on to us. The Reverend Clyde Griffith serves as minister."

Recent sermons include: Surviving Hard Times When Feeling Stressed, Connecting With A Crowd of Witnesses, and Surviving Hard Times When Health Changes.
