Living Forgiven  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 18: 21–35
Summary: When Peter asks if it’s enough to forgive another person seven times, Jesus says, “No, seventy-seven times,” and goes on to relate our forgiveness of others to God’s forgiveness of us.

Strangers in an Elevator  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 18: 15–20
Summary: God uses the human connections between individual Christian as one way to speak to us. That is at least part of what Jesus meant when he said, “where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” These words of Jesus call us to accountability to each other and responsibility for each other.

Unlimited Forgiveness  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 18: 21–35
Summary: Jesus’ answer to Peter’s question about how often to forgive someone is a reversal of the ancient idea of unlimited vengeance. Jesus calls us instead to unlimited forgiveness. This is possible because God’s forgiveness of us is more than an exercise in bookkeeping. It is an act of reconciliation that changes peoples’ lives, so that they can be not only forgiven people but forgiving ones.
