Sermons

Sermons at Pearl seek to thoughtfully engage the ancient and provocative stories, poems, and letters in the Bible. The act of the sermon at Pearl provides space for pondering the sacred; it’s an opportunity to consider the mystery and love of God, to whom the Bible points. The sermon is this beautiful moment in the week to think deeply, consider, be stirred, challenged, encouraged, and inspired to bountifully live.

Curating Two Years of a Heart by Michael Roth

Unfortunately there were technical difficulties during the recording of this message. This recording begins ten minutes late. It misses Pastor Mike's words about the Oversight Team sharing in August, his appreciation for the Oversight Team's role in this church and his life, and his difficulty in sharing his heart for Pearl every August. So, instead of sharing one thing, Pastor Mike curated two years of words that he has shared with our church. He begins two years ago with his Oversight Team sharing in August of 2014 and proceeds forward to the present. This recording picks-up at the end of what he shared in August of 2014.
