  • Sermon: It’s the Same Boat
    January 22, 2023 1 Corinthians 1:10-18Matthew 4:12-23 by Eric Anderson One of my favorite moments in the 2016 movie Moana is Maui’s introduction of himself to Moana. “’Maui, shapeshifter, demigod of the wind and sea, hero of men…’ Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry. ‘And women.
