My sermon from Palm/Passion Sunday is now online at soundcloud.com. The gospel text was Mark 15.1-39. It was a sermon in which I discussed the shortcomings of a popular metaphor for understanding what Christ did on the cross.
Below is a link Jenny’s sermon from February 1, 2015. She was preaching on Mark 1.21-28, 32-34. This is the story of Jesus’ healing of the man with an unclean spirit and the need we have to have the demons and unclean spirits of our own lives cast out.
After a long hiatus, I’ve posted another sermon online. This is my sermon on Jonah preached at Abilene First United Methodist Church on January 25, 2015.
A sermon on John 14.1-14 titled “Except Through Me,” preached by John Collins at Abilene First United Methodist Church on May 18, 2014. I thought this would be a controversial sermon, so I was very careful to stand with great theologians like Martin Luther and John Wesley. If you find yourself offended, I would welcome a conversation.
A stewardship sermon on Acts 2.42-47. Preached by John Collins on May 11, 2014 at Abilene First United Methodist Church.

The first sermon of Advent preached by John Collins on December 1, 2013. The texts of the day were: Isaiah 2.1-5, Romans 13.11-14, and Matthew 24.36-44. In this sermon John spoke of the kingdom already come and the kingdom yet coming. A good sermon title would have been “One Day Closer.”
The sermon below was preached by Jennifer Collins on Luke 17.5-10 (the parable of the mustard seed). This sermon was preached October 6, 2013 at Abilene First United Methodist Church.
I’m continuing to catch up on the posting of old sermons. This was a sermon of mine on Jeremiah 32.1-3a, 6-15 preached at Abilene First United Methodist Church. The scripture passage is one in which Jeremiah makes what would appear to be an unwise investment in real estate. The sermon looked at how we invest ourselves in God’s coming kingdom.
