This sermon was recorded during a church camp out. You will notice that there is quite a bit of wind in the mic.

“I am going out to see my Father’s world!” Maltbie Babcock announced to his church staff as he laced up his running shoes. The staff of the First Presbyterian Church in Lockport, NY, were used to their pastor making this statement as he went on his daily early-morning run. He would run two miles to the brow of a hill overlooking Lake Ontario, taking in all the beauty of God’s creation. He would then run two more miles to a beautiful, deep ravine, which was home to forty different species of birds. Maltbie found a closeness to his Heavenly Father as he spent  time in His creation.

This insight into the personal life of Pastor Maltbie Davenport Babcock helps us understand the inspiration behind today’s hymn, “This Is My Father’s World”. (SDA Hymnal #92) Let’s take some time to explore our Father’s world in this fifth sermon in our series on Hymns for Him.

KR05: Loan Coal Religion9/13/08

 

Lone Coal Religion is the idea that once you are a Christian it is not necessary to be part of a church. After all, if a church can’t save you why join one?

We’ll answers questions such as:

Was the early church organized?
What benefit is there to being part of an organized church?
Does God expect me to be part of a faulty church?
