Thirst Quencher

Are we willing to break down, push past various types of barriers we might find surrounding our everyday life such as social, economic and educational to share the Gospel with others? Do we, or are we willing to bring Christ to those near us, but outside our comfort zone? Christ shows in John 4, that supposed enemies must also be reached with the Gospel

  1. The very root of your writing whilst appearing agreeable at first, did not really settle perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you managed to make me a believer but just for a short while. I however have got a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do well to fill in those gaps. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I would surely end up being amazed.

      Dear Wilton, I first wish to apologize for the lateness of this reply. I do however also desire to point out, it is rather unique that a single sermon can answer all skepticism or questions, for even Jesus saw hundreds, even thousands abandon him after certain sermons. But I urge you to continue visiting our website and listening to the sermons we post weekly ( But whether you agree or disagree, we are honored that you took the time to consider what Pastor Bresnahan spoke of in this particular sermon, it is a sermon that is faithful to Scripture. And while Pastor Tim does deliver the great majority of the sermons for our congregation, he is not directly responsible for the blurbs which accompany his sermons online, I happen to be. I take notes during his sermons and then attempt to synthesize his teaching, as well as other sermons offered by guest speakers down into one or two paragraphs. Perhaps I could have done a better job with this particular effort. And as a final thought, I was intrigued to actually read where you said, ‘…you managed to make me a believer but just for a short while.’ It instantly brought to mind two particular New Testament instances. The first is when Jesus speaks of what the ministry of the Holy Spirit will be, and now is, John 16:7-15, and then, Jesus’parable of the Sower and the Seed, to be found in Matthew 13:1-23, Mark 4:1-20, and Luke 8:4-15. I urge you to read and consider these, and once having, to turn your consideration to your own life and beliefs. Then following this, it is my prayer for you, that you will also take the time to read Romans 3:16, 5:1, 6:23, 8:1,28-32, and 10:9-10, as there is no Christian who would desire to see you suffer the fate of the Rich Man in Luke 15:19-31, and thus strongly consider not only What Christ warns of there, but finally, that you would turn then to the book of Hebrews and read 1:1-3 & 10:28-31.
      If we can in the future be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to again write.

      May the Lord bless you and keep you and grant you peace.

      Rich Griffin
      Chairman of Duxbury Church Deacon Board
