In the woods beneath rotting organic material is found an important soil layer called “humus.” It is from this humus that new life springs forth. Listen as Pastor Phil draws inspiration from this natural process and argues on the basis of linguistics that Jesus calls us to be the humus of this planet. How are you growing? How are you encouraging the growth of others?

In this sermon, Pastor Phil applies the word of the Lord from Luke 14 to our modern world. You will hear how this teaching intersects with current events, such as the Olympics, the Louisiana flooding, and the 2016 Election. Pastor Phil also draws inspiration from modern literature as he cites Stephen King’s “Carrie,” and looks to the seemingly prophetic words of Douglas Adams’ most famous work of Science Fiction, “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”
