Introducing the Way of love

Jesus’ baptism in Luke lifts up the work of the Holy Spirit. The first sermon of the Way of Love series reflects on the ways we live out our baptism and engage the Spirit in our lives. Here’s a link to our resources page for The Way of Love series.

Your Pathway to the Manger

Like the Magi, we make our own pathway to the manger. Starting with little faith or much faith, we follow our own stars, ask our own questions, bring our own gifts, as we seek the child, the King of the Jews. Mt. 2:1-12

A Fast Mass

The Sunday after Christmas is a “light” Sunday – one to let the worship wash over you and do its thing to shape your heart. A poem by Irish poet Paul Durcan included about the beauty and wonder of a “fast mass.”

Participating in the Gospel

In this Christmas before Christmas service, we read the nativity Gospel, Luke 2:1-20, with the congregation divided into groups to speak different parts. The sermon elaborates on how participating in the Gospel reading this way reminds us that we participate in God’s grand story of humanity each day.

When it all comes together

In the introduction to John the Baptist, we see the past, present, and future of God’s work come together.  It is a moment that encourages us to have faith today that God who has begun a good work in us will see it to completion, even when it doesn’t look that way.   

Christ the Truth Sunday

On Christ the King Sunday, Jesus doesn’t seem to want to talk about being a king. He wants to talk about God’s truth–that we are all equally worthy in the eyes of God. God’s kingdom is based on this fundamental truth, to which Jesus witnesses with his life.  (John 18: 33:-37)
