You can find all my sermons here. Actually, not just my sermons, but the sermons from my lay preaching team. And not just my sermons – all the talks I give that I can get my hands on. I collect them all here for you.

Below, you can also find the sermon previews I publish each Sunday.

They include the full manuscript of the sermon and the discussion guide for each message. If you’re going to join us at Catalyst Church on a Sunday, try reading the sermon before hand – it actually helps you engage more fully in the message!

The Bright Sadness

O Christmas Tree

It can be hard for us to know how to navigate the complex experiences of the holidays. For some, it’s a time of great joy; for others, struggle and sadness. Advent offers us a unique avenue into these spaces by inviting us to confront pain and disillusionment with hope. How can we wait in the bright sadness for God’s arrival?

From Series: "O Christmas Tree"

The Christmas tree has become a central symbol of our celebration of Jesus' birth. How does this symbol invite us deeper into the Christmas story - a story that reaches from the ancient past toward a hope-filled future?
