Sermons from days long ago

Someone recently told me I have a bunch of sermons on youtube, so I thought I’d provide links to them in case you’re interested in my liberation-lite preaching. There are also a couple of audio links and a few sermon manuscripts (go figure!) Unless otherwise specified, these were preached at First Christian Church of Oakland.
