John 1:29-42 

Dr. Tim Bruster, Senior Pastor

Dear Friends,

In sanctuary worship we are in a series of sermons entitled, “In this New Year.” Everyone knows that the turning from one year to the next is a time of reflection and action regarding our lives: our habits, our attitudes, our hopes, our disappointments, our dreams, our health, the life of our spirit, and many, many more aspects of living.

This Sunday we will hear the very first words Jesus speaks in the Gospel of John. (John 1:29-42)  It is a question asked of two curious seekers: “What are you looking for?” Sunday I want us to hear Jesus asking that question again. “What are you looking for?” This is an important question because searching and finding are important aspects of what it means to be human and what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
