    Christ, the Second Adam
    11.23.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

    Asbury was honored Sunday when Dr. Tim Tennent, President of Asbury Theological Seminary, conferred on me an honorary doctorate. Dr. Tennent said, as far as he knew, this was the first time in the history of the Seminary that this recognition was...

          11.02.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

          Remember we gain an extra hour of sleep this Sunday – we’ve earned it! Daylight Savings ends this Saturday. Don't forget to set your clocks back. On behalf of all the pastors, I would like to thank you for your kindness during October's Pastor...

            Your Future Story
            10.26.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

            It has been a long time since I missed three Sundays in a row. We were out celebrating a week’s worth of birthdays with family. Before that, I was in Israel for two weeks. I look forward to being back in the pulpit, and back with you, this week.

              Living The Magnificent Story
              10.19.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

              Twenty-nine of us just returned from a wonderful trip to the Holy Land. We were treated like heroes in many places in Israel because we were the first tour group many hotels, restaurants and stores had seen since COVID-19. In a few places, we...

                10.12.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                Greetings from Israel! I’m grateful to be back in the Holy Land (we are being treated like celebrities just for showing up). We tuned in to worship from our hotel. It was wonderful. A special thanks to all those who make the online services...

                  Holy Saturday
                  10.05.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                  Theologians (past and present) hold various views of what 1 Peter 3:18-22 is saying. Even Martin Luther found it confusing: “A wonderful text is this, and a more obscure passage perhaps than any other in the New Testament, so that I do not know...

                    Truth
                    09.28.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                    I admit I am a bit nervous about this Sunday’s sermon. In 42 years of ministry, I’ve never preached on “Holy Saturday.” The message comes from a strange text, 1 Peter 3:18-22, that describes Jesus’ “descent” to the dead after His crucifixion and...

                      Goodness
                      09.21.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                      The Bible begins with GOOD news, not bad. Genesis 1-2 precedes Genesis 3. When the Lord made human beings, creation went from being “good” to being “very good.” Before we adopt an identity marred and tarnished by sin, we should steep ourselves...
