This sermon was suggested by my good friend Kendra a couple of years ago. I promised her I would deliver the sermon.
The following invite was sent out:
You are cordially invited to a Hairy Sermon on the Wednesday (November 29, 2017) evening at the Midweek Service at the Highway Palo Alto Community in Christ campus. Food is served at 6:30 followed by the sermon and prayer.
This long-overdue, 2-years in the making sermon surpasses Samson’s troubles. Even the hair-raising between Jacob and Esau pales by comparison! Furthermore, this sermon features a cast of hundreds of millions.
Join me if you can. If you can’t, I will be posting the sermon sometime this weekend on the Worship Jam web site. Email me and I will send you the link.

Audience participation time! Everyone raise a hand. If you can’t raise your hand, raise a finger or just nod.
I will be looking for YES answers, or no answer at all.
How many of you have had a difficult time in your life?
How many have had to do a difficult task?
How many have had a difficult task and were tempted to find an easy way around it? Continue reading It’s Not Easy
Do you remember this?
It was invented in 1963 by Harvey Ball as an employee morale booster for an insurance company for $45. They neglected to trademark the Smiley and soon millions of buttons, T-shirts, mugs and other items were flooding the store shelves and mail order advertisements. Continue reading Be Happy
I may have an opportunity to attend my 45th high school reunion. In looking over the Facebook pictures I realize everyone has dramatically changed from the old school days. I look in the mirror and see just a little more gray hair and a couple of extra pounds of weight, but not much difference in my looks.
Hopefully I can recognize all my old friends, at least the ones that posted pictures to their Facebook accounts. Continue reading Women in the Church
