1 Timothy 2:1-15
Why does our pastor affirm women in leadership and the ordination of women? Why is it important? This sermon will address the Bible’s view of women in leadership and offer a biblical argument for the ordination of women to the priesthood. Join us for this important sermon and consider inviting a friend who thinks differently about this topic.
*Not all of the question and answer portion was captured and at times the audio is hard to hear, we apologize for this inconvenience.

1 Corinthians 11:17-34
What is communion? Why were we commanded to remember or rehearse it? Why has it been seen from conflicting views over the past 2000 years? How can we make sense of it in the Late Modern Age. Join us for an Anglican Perspective on Communion that balances the concerns of the Reformation with the long standing traditions of the Church Universal across the ages.
There really is no way to make sense of Baptism apart from an understanding of God’s covenants. Likewise, there is no way to make sense of infant baptism without placing it within the Bible’s covenant history. This sermon will look at the three prevalent views of Baptism and where Anglicans within the Reformation have viewed it. Please note that the last portion of the sermon includes a Q&A session, unfortunately due to a technical error Pastor Jay's responses are very hard to hear. We apologize for that and hope you are still able to take something away from it.
Periodically, Jonah’s Call reviews the whole Bible. It is an important thing to rehearse because the book holds together a grand story, a met a-narrative, that gives our life meaning. It tells us where we came from, what went wrong, how God fixes it, and where we are going. With the theme of God desiring to “make all things new” from genesis to revelation, we will encounter the whole Bible together in 30 minutes.
John 21: 20-25
This final passage of the Gospel of John will serve as a summary passage for the book which desires for all those who read it to believe and have everlasting life. In this touching final passage of John’s Gospel, we do see men and women who believe and who have and will endure through eternity. We join them in our belief and can learn from their lives what it means to belong to Christ and to love others in the way he commanded
John 21: 1-19
In the calling of Peter to be a Disciple, Jesus declared that Simon would be called Peter and that he would shift from fishing to being a fisher of men. The story shows us that Jesus has in mind to change his followers into what they should and can be- but not in a Hollywood kind of ‘you can be whatever you put your mind to’ kind of change. There where conditions that allowed Peter to become a “rock” and this passage explores both the conditions and the beautiful change that did in fact take place in Peter’s life. Come explore how God can change us as we near the end of our series on the Gospel of John.
John 20: 19-31
The resurrection was not a natural part of the disciples mental framework- it blew their minds. Like a man from the 17th century trying to grasp the subtleties of something as modern as an iphone, the resurrection was hard to understand. As expected, the encounter is described with awkwardness and doubt. This week, we explore doubt and the reality of the resurrection two centuries after it changed the universe.
John 20: 1-18
With beautiful colors and sounds that announce the resurrection of Jesus, we will celebrate Easter at the Homewood Chapel in Squirrel Hill. Please bring a bell to add to the joy!
This week's recording includes most of the service, we hope you enjoy all of the bell ringing and music!
A beautiful service that includes the waving of palms, festive singing, and the haunting reality that our shouts of praise too often turn into declarations to jettison God from our life.
Before John introduces the last day of Jesus’ life (the Passion), we are given a glimpse into the final words of instruction that Jesus gives to his closest followers. His promise to them is that God’s Spirit will indwell them, making them a new creation or, born again. Rather than being a kind of Christian ( a born again), Jesus shows us in this passage that every Christian is a born again Christian who is given the gift of the Holy Spirit and a new life. This sermon will explore God’s plan to give each of us a new life by allowing his Spirit to live within us.
