To Arrive Where We Started

Morgan Roberts
Honorably Retired Pastor Emeritus, Presbyterian Church, USA

These are thoughts gathered together at the time when the library computer at Louisville Seminary was named “Morgan” in honor of my ministry.  This is s sermon in which I look back with gratitude over many years, remembering those who have helped me along the way.  I hope that I will always hold fast to Harry Truman’s resolve, ”I tried never to forget who I was and where I’d come from and where I was going back to.”  Listen to the sermon.

(Insert Expletive Here) the Box

Caitlin Simpson
LPTS Student Body President

May 6, 2015
Romans 12:2,3

Since being in seminary I have learned a thing or two about that box we call the pulpit.  I can’t, in good conscious enter into that box.  Learn why by listening to the sermon or reading the sermon in PDF.

(Note: there are a few expletives in this sermon. If you feel you are likely to be offended, please don’t listen or read.)
