Have you ever been served an eviction notice? Or been asked to leave a certain location because your presence wasn’t appreciated? How did it feel?
If you’ve ever had such a thing happen, you’re actually in really good company. Jesus was once tossed out of church for unruly behaviour….. while he was preaching! Actually, if the congregation had their way, that would have been the last church service he ever attended, and the last sermon he ever preached.
This past Sunday we read Luke 4:14-30 – the account of the attempted lynching.
You have to wonder – what was it that drove the crowd so crazy? Honestly, I thought people were supposed to fall asleep during a sermon, not become blood thirsty!
Seriously, though – the very end of the story tells of Jesus walking away, beyond their grasp.
And the breath-takingly horrible thing is………. he never comes back!
What’s all going on here? What’s the lesson for we pew-sitters in 2019 church?
What’s our take-away at Kemptville Christian Reformed Church as we round the corner towards the end of 2019, and the beginning of another year of life and ministry together in 2020?

As always, feel free to pass this stuff around. You can also find this, and other messages online at the KCRC website under the tab “Sermons And Stuff.”
We’d also love to have you join us live for worship.
We gather each Sunday at 10am.
Don’t worry about getting all gussied up. Just come as you are – we’re a church full of imperfect people.
And we’d be glad to have other imperfect people, like you, along for the ride!
