The Inevitability of the Resurrection  Click here Click title to view sermon Acts 2: 22–36
Summary: St. Peter's way of accounting for Christ's resurrection is the first apostolic statement on the subject. And certainly, even if the point were only one of antiquarian interest, it would be full of attraction to know how the first Christians thought about the chief truths of their faith.

Too Much for a Greeting Card  Click here Click title to view sermon Acts 2: 1–11
Summary: On the first Day of Pentecost, everyone heard the good news of God in their own tongue. The church has tried, through Bible translation and missionaries, to continue this work. Now we face new challenges to make God’s truth available to everyone, in his or her own tongue.

The End Is Where We Start From  Click here Click title to view sermon Acts 2: 1–21
Summary: In Hollywood versions of apocalyptic last days, all the earth is destroyed, including all that is beautiful and good. But in the prophetic vision of the last days, which Peter uses to describe the disciples’ experience on Pentecost, the last days signal the beginning of God’s activity among them. The inexplicable wind and fire that blows through the disciples also burns away the sadness of the past and gives them power and intelligibility for the future, God’s future.

Do You Have it in You?  Click here Click title to view sermon Acts 2: 1–11
Summary: People need to hear that there is help available to get through the trials and uncertainties of our time. We have a power within us that allows us to perform marvelous deeds.

Sneering at the Church  Click here Click title to view sermon Acts 2: 1–21
Summary: Even though we may feel discouraged by the declining influence of the church and the ways contemporary society dismisses the church, we can take heart that even in its earliest days, outsiders made disparaging remarks about the church. Bystanders mistook the power of the Holy Spirit for inebriation. The church still claims the unexpected, unifying and empowering influence of the Holy Spirit for its life and mission.

It’s Greek to Me  Click here Click title to view sermon Acts 2: 1–21
Acts 2: 1–11 for LFM
Summary: Differences in language can frustrate and confuse people and lead to conflict, a reality that the Bible speaks about in the story of the Tower of Babel. The story of Pentecost reverses this confusion of tongues, as the Holy Spirit enables the apostles to speak in languages that members of the crowd understand. This is a sign of the creation of true community centered in Jesus Christ. Because the gospel can be proclaimed in all languages, this community can be sustained and can grow.
