Sunday, March 29, 2020: “Friend!”

What is a friendship worth? In the case of a friendship with Jesus, it’s worth everything; the entirety of our whole lives, and more. In our Scripture lesson from the Gospel According to John, the friendship of Jesus with three of his closest friends, changes their lives here and now in just one moment. But in that same moment it also changes life for them for all eternity. Listen in and  find out how. The bulletin for the service is…

Sunday, March 22, 2020: “Three Powerful Words”

In the midst of these times, indeed any time of crisis, but most especially right now, The 23rd Psalm has something specific to say to us.  Its message right now is found in its fourth verse, where it speaks three very powerful words to us; words that speak its central meaning, and have the power to stir our hearts, settle our minds, and comfort our souls.

Sunday, March 15, 2020: “More than a Quick Fix”

But temptation has a remedy: a remedy that we find in our Gospel lesson. Here Jesus shows us how to deal…

Sunday, February 23, 2020: “Mountain High or Valley Low”

Have you ever noticed how many Biblical encounters with God and Jesus happen on mountain tops. It’s no wonder that we tend to refer to any encounter with the Divine as a “mountain top experience.” But the truth of it is, God also will meet us in the low valleys of our lives. Our Gospel lesson tells us how this happens.

Sunday, February 9, 2020: “Looking Forward”

You know Murphy’s Law, right? “If anything can go wrong, it will?” Some folks like to add this corollary to Murphy, “Murphy was an optimist!” Current events sure can make us think the corollary is more on target. Yet, Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians has some faith restoring good news for us: the future really does contain a bright and joyous vision. It is indeed something to look forward to.
