The Gate Sermon Notes

Welcome to The Gate Sermon Series. Ordinarily when a book comes out that is accompanied by a sermon series the author will write all the messages himself, and I too have written and preached a sermon on each of the themes of The Gate at Community. But rather than just share my perspective on these topics I have chosen to invite several well know authors and teachers to join me in this project hoping to give it a greater voice. Each of the guest teachers was assigned a theme to talk about, but they were allowed to bring their own unique style and Biblical insight to the message which, I think, gives the series a richness and diversity.
This is the introduction to the sermon series material
