Latest Sermon

Sept. 26th: Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost; C. Ann Gittings, Guest Preacher

Scripture: Psalm 124:1-8, Mark 9:38-50

Sermon Title: Tough Love

Theme: As he nears Jerusalem for the final time, Jesus begins the last of his teachings to the disciples. As often happens, they try to understand, but frequently miss his point. Jesus’ message then assumes a more ominous tone, as he speaks of the necessity of eliminating every roadblock to a person’s salvation. His words are as difficult – but essential – to grasp today as they were in the early first century. We will unpack the theological and practical implications of Jesus’ “tough love” message, as we, like the disciples, seek to live into God’s sacrificial and redemptive love.

The Pastor Nominating Committee is thankful for your continuing prayers. We are actively engaged in interviews for the pastors being considered, each of whom could be a good fit for Fairview. The task now is discerning who is best for our church.

Anthem History

The gospel hymn, “I Am Thine, O Lord was a collaboration by the prolific hymnist, Fanny Crosby (1820-1915) and industrialist William Doane (1832-1915) in the mid 1800’s. Fanny Crosby was a blind American poet, lyricist, composer and mission worker. She wrote more than 8,000 hymns and gospel songs during her lifetime and became a household name by the end of the 19th Century. William Doane loved Christian music and was Crosby’s principal hymn collaborator. He wrote the melodies for more than 1,500 of Crosby’s poems. During Doane’s lifetime, he also composed music for many other hymns of the day and edited a number of hymn collections. “I Am Thine, O Lord” grew out of a conversation that Crosby had with Doane while visiting his home. They were talking about the nearness of God when Crosby was seized by inspiration. Soon she was reciting the verses and choruses; very much as we find them in hymnals today. Doane set her words to music, and the song that they produced has continued to bless generations of Christians.
