Dan's Past Sermons
Sheep Among Wolves
In this sermon Dan speculates on the “love” Jesus claimed the Ephesians had “forsaken” in Revelation 2:4. After praising their orthodoxy, Jesus criticizes their lack of love. Dan argues that, perhaps, they defended orthodoxy at the cost of love. That is, they loved ideology over people.
A Living Faith
Many read Revelation as a predictor of the future. This turns God into a fixed, wooden object who does not actually relate to a living creation. But this book was never meant to be read this way. Instead, it points to a LIVING GOD who reigns over a LIVING CREATION and calls us into a LIVING FAITH. God invites us to participate in the fulfillment of his will even-and-especially-when the world looks ungodly, and love looks defeated.
In this sermon, Dan Kent asks the question, was Jesus a good teacher? He uses the story of the rich young ruler, who called Jesus “good teacher,” and Jesus’s response to help us see how the questions this man brought to Jesus hindered his ability to receive what Jesus taught, and in the same way today, our questions limit us.
Miracles & Microscopes
Dan Kent shows us how faith & science can work together and complement one another. He then offers the “Unity of Consciousness” argument, then shows how the miracle of the self can ground our personhood, our dignity, our equality, and the wide range of amazing teachings of the Bible, like: prayer, immortality, free will, the Holy Spirit, and so much more!
One With Authority
Jesus spoke with authority, but what does this authority mean for today when we tend to distrust authority figures? Dan addresses why acting on Jesus’s teaching is so crucial to actually understanding what Jesus said. Jesus’s teachings are not merely facts we believe. They are deep truths we can only fully know when we live them out.
