Several years ago, I heard a speech by Francis X. Kelly, then Commandant of the United States Marine Corps.

What to Do Till Jesus Comes - by Michael Phillips
Ecclesiastes - Sermon 4
Save File: MP3 - WMA - Sermon Notes
Other than the Bible itself, there is nothing I have studied with more pleasure and profit than Church History. To me, the story of the Church is wonderful for two reasons: It proves that God loves His Church and is faithful to His promises. If He didn't and wasn't, there would be no Church; the ... More >>>

Baxter on Public Worship - by Michael Phillips
No Audio - Sermon Notes
My talk this afternoon is called Richard Baxter on Public Worship. Baxter was an English pastor who lived from 1615 to 1691.

With Reverence and Awe - by Michael Phillips
Ecclesiastes - Sermon 6
Save File: MP3 - WMA - Sermon Notes
If you ever get the chance to attend a Quaker wedding, I hope you take it. Their weddings are very different than what we're used to, and the differences are not accidental. They are deeply rooted in theology. Most weddings are wordy affairs. Nobody outside of Las Vegas can tie the knot quicker ... More >>>

The Root of All Evil - by Michael Phillips
Ecclesiastes - Sermon 7
Save File: MP3 - WMA - Sermon Notes
I don't watch a lot of news on TV, but when I do, I try to avoid two channels: MSNBC and FOX. The former is slanted sharply to the left; the latter leans just as far to the right. One is a spokesman for liberal Democrats; the other is a mouthpiece of conservative Republicans. The problem I have ... More >>>

Parties and Funerals - by Michael Phillips
Save File: MP3 - WMA - Sermon Notes
If you had the choice, would you rather go to a party or a funeral? The question is rhetorical, of course, because I know the answer: you'd rather go to a party. I feel the same way, and so does everyone else. Parties are fun; they often celebrate happy events, the people you meet there are likely ... More >>>
