    The Power of Words

    Words have power.  With our words we insult, or encourage, we curse or we bless.  With them we build trust or tear it down. Our words have the power to strengthen relationships or to destroy them.  In our political life, words have the potential to further divide us, or to bring us together.  And while we were taught as children that sticks and stones may break our bones, but words will never harm us, we each have been hurt by the words of others. The Bible notes that, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.”  This four-week sermon series from Church of the Resurrection addresses the power of our words, how we might avoid using our words to harm, and four keys to using our words in ways that give life. You will find here all the series resources that were produced, along with the weekly sermons.

    500 years ago Martin Luther changed history forever. His hammer, nail and list of 95 beliefs so rocked the most powerful empire of his day that he was tried, convicted and excommunicated from the only life he’d ever known.
                                                             
    What did he believe that was so explosive? What did he assert that would cause the government to deem it a crime for anyone to offer him food or shelter? How did Martin Luther ultimately reform the Christian faith and change the world?
     
    This 3-week sermon series investigates one of the most pivotal figures in human history and the Reformation he began.  You will find here the weekly sermons, promo video and Grow, Pray and Study Guide for the series. Churches may use these sermons in adult Sunday School and Bible studies to learn about the Reformation as we mark the 500 year anniversary in October 2017.
    • Week 1 Sermon - A film crew has captured video from historic sites in Rome as Pastor Adam tells the story of Martin Luther and the beginnings of the Protestant Reformation.
    • Week 2 Sermon: Filmed on location in Germany, this sermon takes you to Erfurt where Luther went to school, took his vows of priesthood and was ordained; to Wittenberg to visit his home and the church where he preached more than 2,000 sermons; to Wartburg Castle where he translated the New Testament into German; and back to Wittenberg where he composed A Mighty Fortress is Our God and was laid to rest. The film crew was given rare access to Luther’s room at Wartburg and his cell at the monastery in Erfurt.
    • Week 3 Sermon: Reformation comes home. Preached at Church of the Resurrection in Leawood, Kansas, this sermon focuses on the perpetual need – in the Church and in our own spiritual lives – for reform.  Acknowledging that we always “see through a glass dimly,” as the Apostle Paul notes in 1 Corinthians 13, this series concludes with an exploration of tendencies we all face and tensions that develop within the church which often lead us to stray and even to divide.
