Drawing Nearer preached from James 3:1-12 @ Tinney Chapel by Brother Carl Sterling, 09-16-12


James 3:1-12 (New International Version)

James 3:1-12

New International Version (NIV)

Taming the Tongue

Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. We all stumble in many ways. Anyone who is never at fault in what they say is perfect, able to keep their whole body in check.
When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise, the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and sea creatures are being tamed and have been tamed by mankind, but no human being can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10 Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

Can You Hear Me Now!

A sermon preached by Brother Carl Sterling, based on Mark 7:31-37, @ Tinney Chapel UMC.

Mark 7:31-37

New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Heals a Deaf and Mute Man

31 Then Jesus left the vicinity of Tyre and went through Sidon, down to the Sea of Galilee and into the region of the Decapolis.[a] 32 There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged Jesus to place his hand on him.
33 After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then he spit and touched the man’s tongue. 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him, “Ephphatha!” (which means “Be opened!”). 35 At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.
36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. 37 People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

Tinney Chapel Troubadours perform another George Jordan original song

Today's two-song effort by the Tinney Chapel Troubadours included another original hymn composition by the talented George Jordan, the original Tinney Chapel Troubadour, and a long-time singer and songwriter.

Today's song by George was Let Me Rest In Your Arms, followed by a pastoral favorite, Jesus Is The Rock, both performed with a peppy rhythm. 

The group welcomed a new member of the Troubadours: Cline Hall, a drummer, who added percussion to the performance. 

Other Troubadours include Pastor Carl Sterling, Kevin Tinney, another multi-talented singer-songwriter of the Greater Winnsboro area, Roger Schneider and Joe Dan Boyd. 

A special treat today was the trumpet solo by Travessa Tinney Newsome: Nearer My God To Thee, introduced as having been played by the ship's band when the Titanic sank. 

The church choir sang Precious Name today.

Our pianist was Molly Mathis and our song leader was Angela Wylie. Congregational songs included This Is My Father's World and Softly And Tenderly Jesus Is Calling, the latter as the hymn of invitation.

"Clean Hands" Sermon, Part 2 & Service of Holy Communion Video by Brother Carl Sterling, Pastor, Tinney Chapel UMC.


Each local United Methodist church determines how often to serve communion.  Many churches celebrate communion once a month, often on the first Sunday.  Communion is also celebrated on special days of the year, such as Christmas and Easter.  There has gradually been a move toward more frequent celebration of the Lord's Supper.  Some United Methodist churches now celebrate the Lord’s Supper every week.

The pastor will be able to provide information on the worship services and the communion traditions of the local church.


The table of Holy Communion is Christ’s table, not the table of The United Methodist Church or of the local congregation.  The table is open to anyone who seeks to respond to Christ’s love and seeks to lead a new life of peace and love, as the invitation to the table says.

The United Methodist Book of Worship says, “All who intend to lead a Christian life, together with their children, are invited to receive the bread and cup. We have no tradition of refusing any who present themselves desiring to receive” (page 29). This statement means that in practice there are few, if any, circumstances in which a United Methodist pastor would refuse to serve the elements of Holy Communion to a person who comes forward to receive.

By Water and the Spirit affirms: “Because the table at which we gather belongs to the Lord, it should be open to all who respond to Christ’s love, regardless of age or church membership. The Wesleyan tradition has always recognized that Holy Communion may be an occasion for the reception of converting, justifying, and sanctifying grace.”

A Ceremonial Washing Of The Hands @ Tinney Chapel ahead of Pastor Carl Sterling's upcoming sermon, "Clean Hands," based on Mark 7:1-23.

Mark 7:1-23

New International Version (NIV)

That Which Defiles

The Pharisees and some of the teachers of the law who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus and saw some of his disciples eating food with hands that were defiled, that is, unwashed. (The Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they give their hands a ceremonial washing, holding to the tradition of the elders. When they come from the marketplace they do not eat unless they wash. And they observe many other traditions, such as the washing of cups, pitchers and kettles.[a])
So the Pharisees and teachers of the law asked Jesus, “Why don’t your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders instead of eating their food with defiled hands?”
He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written:
“‘These people honor me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me.
They worship me in vain;
    their teachings are merely human rules.’[b]
You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to human traditions.”
And he continued, “You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe[c] your own traditions! 10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and mother,’[d] and, ‘Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.’[e] 11 But you say that if anyone declares that what might have been used to help their father or mother is Corban (that is, devoted to God)— 12 then you no longer let them do anything for their father or mother. 13 Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that.”
14 Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. 15 Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them.” [16] [f]
17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. 18 “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? 19 For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)
20 He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. 21 For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. 23 All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”

The Magic Of Music @ The Quintessential Country Church

Music gets us going at Tinney Chapel with the first rattle out of the box: Our Call to Worship, This Is The Day, followed by our opening hymn Leaning On The Everlasting Arms.  

Our animated song leader, Angela Wylie, keeps us excited about our music because she is so obviously caught up in its thrall. Soon, so are we!

When the Tinney Chapel Troubadours take center stage, their first offering is the familiar standard, Hold Fast To The Right, an old chestnut going back at least to the days of the old Vaughn Quartet. Please excuse our filming which missed most of the first two verses, but perhaps the Troubadours' enthusiasm will help to compensate for that. Their second number, Now I Can See, is one of Troubadour George Jordan's many original compositions, this one with a catchy call-and-response technique which often brings the congregation to a hand-clapping mood.

Finally, after the sermon and after the service of Holy Communion, Angela Wylie leads this singing congregation in Brother Carl's Hymn of Invitation, Great Is Thy Faithfulness, as Tinney Chapel's acolyte pauses with him during this stirring finale.

To say that it has been a magical musical tour would be an understatement. All of us are still humming, singing and patting our feet as the memory lingers now and, likely, forever.

Some of us older members think of Gene Autry, America's first singing cowboy star, who famously said: "It's hard to be mean and sing at the same time."

Amen?

Until next week when we will all be Back In
The Saddle Again
