Retirement of Dr David Albert Farmer from Silverside Church and the Pastoral Ministry–online and face to face

Dear Online Viewers, after twenty-one and a half years as pastor of the congregation at Silverside I can see and hosts of people in the US and around the world I have not yet seen I’m retiring. I’m not sure of all the particulars except that my final day to preach in person at Silverside will be December 19. How long online sermons will be posted I don’t know. And what will be happening here after new hands and voices take over I know nothing about. I suspect that the site may be shut down for a breather and some reworking.

In any case I’m profoundly grateful to those of you who have honored my efforts by viewing/listening and before we had videos reading them.

A first-century Jewish part-time preacher/faith healer and part-time handyperson/carpenter whose few utterances changed the world said that truth makes us free even if politics don’t. Do not listen to or read any sermons that try to steal your freedom or otherwise diminish you. The very imprint of the LifeSource/LifeForce many of us call God rests upon you.

Love and gratitude,

David

We are as the flute, and the music in us is from thee;

we are as the mountain and the echo in us is from thee.

Next week: The Worship of Evil in the Forms of Government and Government Officials

Next Sunday’s (Sept 19) Sobering Sermon Theme: “Parents Killing Off the Children to Save Face,” Book of Judges, chapter 11

I wish we could stick to happy topics. Our time and place in history seem to make that impossible. Someone has to speak up for the children. The actual followers of Jesus, not the religious right, get the job.
