Unanswered Prayers

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen September 19, 2021 Video of Entire Service: Scripture: Matthew 26:36-45 So, last week I promised you that this Sunday, we would attempt to answer this very hard question: why doesn't God answer my prayers in the way that I desire? It is a question being asked this morning by many members of Husker nation. Too soon? I will confess that I did briefly consider preaching on something else and just hoping you would forget, but that service was recorded and streamed to the whole world. So here we are. Hard question week, it is. Why ...

Rise up!

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen September 12, 2021 Video of entire service: Scripture: Acts 9:36-42 This is an exciting morning. This is an exciting morning because not only is it Homecoming 2021, this is my very first time preaching on this text.

What are some songs with the word “hero” in the title? (And, no, you cannot use the one I talked about in Friday’s e-newsletter. That’s mine.) Here are some answers I know ...

Haggling Prayer

By Rev. Peter Karanja August 29, 2021 Video of entire service:  Scripture: John 2:1-5, Philippians 4:4-7  My parents are some of the best business persons I know. My mum started selling homemade cakes while in school to pay her tuition and to support her siblings while my Dad would learn so many languages from the customers or clients who would come to buy his goods or items that were mostly shoes and clothes. My Dad and Mom made not only a good couple but also great business partners. Their success in retail business made me aspire to be like ...

Ever More Ready to Hear

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen August 22, 2021 Video of entire service: Scripture: Luke 18:1-8 Somehow, somewhere between childhood and adulthood, I picked up the idea that there is something wrong with asking for what we want in prayer. I developed this habit of thinking, “You know, with everything else going on in the world, it’s pretty selfish to ask God to help with my relatively small problems.” Because our problems can always be small compared to someone else’s, right?
