Sermonettes, Bible Studies, Lectures

Most of these messages in most cases were intended to be delivered in 15 minutes, although the extra material normally written down (a good speaker always overprepares, in order to avoid running out of material!) would allow someone with more time to speak longer.  These messages mostly were given in the Ann Arbor, Michigan congregation of the United Church of God. They shouldn't be deemed as official doctrinal statements of the UCG-IA, but I believe all or most of them are in general comformity with its teachings.

(One message below, that about being "born again," had its text changed to make it more in line with a recent declaration on this subject, since there is plainly duality and multiple analogies possible when it comes to Scripture explaining the process of salvation).  Another one was also made more anonymous  and nonspecific than it was originally.
