Sinning Like a Christian

Gets your attention, doesn’t it?  

Bishop Will Willimon, not I, used this title for a book that is being reissued and that I am using for an after Easter Sunday sermon series.  Many people say that Christians are too judgmental and that Christians talk too much about sin.  Maybe the reality is that Christians talk too much about other people’s sins.  Easter Sunday’s triumphant announcement of redemption rather than condemnation will help us to focus on these Seven Deadly Sins:

  • Pride
  • Envy
  • Anger
  • Sloth
  • Greed
  • Gluttony
  • Lust

Examining ourselves as fallen, imperfect people will help us to fully appreciate the redemption of Easter Sunday.

Come join us for Sunday worship beginning April 7 and ending on May 26 as we examine ourselves and just seven deadly sins that demonstrate the ways of Sinning Like a Christian.

Bishop Will Willimon’s thoughts will be a starting point for us as we work together to see ourselves as redeemed people who are working to become more like Christ each day.  Realizing each day that we miss the mark, and we continue to move forward in God’s grace by asking forgiveness and learning to live as broken people who are in desperate need of God’s love and the salvation of Christ.
