By Rev. Chris Jorgensen September 26, 2021 Video of entire service: Scripture: Psalm 69: 1-3; 13-18 Okay, I need your help as this sermon starts.

I’m going to say a sentence, and your job is to respond, “Hi, Chris!”  “My name is Chris, and I am a broken and flawed human.” “Hi, Chris!” Now this scene might ring a bell.

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 ...
