Oakmont UMC is starting something new. No, I'm not talking about the new preacher. I'm talking about a renewed sense of becoming a part of the Kingdom of God. That vision isn't about avoiding death - it is about embracing life. Loosely based on Gary Gunderson's Leading Causes of Life, we are going five weeks through the causes of God's abundant life through Jesus Christ. This is the first of five sermons on those causes. I draw from Acts 2:42-47 for this sermon.
Just a note: I'm trying soundcloud for a spell AND this was recorded from my cell phone sitting on the podium. Apologies for sound quality while I work out the kinks.
