The sermons preached at the 5PM service, podcast.

Barry speaks on a passage where the ministries of Jesus and John the Baptist are contrasted, and discusses three aspects of ministry.  He says that the responsibility of ministry is to continue to preach the same message of repentance and baptism from Jesus, John and scripture. To carry out ministry is a joy and a privilege, but he warns that the temptation is to become possessive of our ministries and jealous of others.
