Risky Living | Rev. David Pileggi

9/18/2022
Risky Living | Rev. David Pileggi For centuries the Parable of the Dishonest Steward has puzzled Bible readers and commentators alike. But in light of contemporary Jewish sources we learn that this parable contains two technical terms used by the Essenes, “mammon of unrighteousness” and “sons of light.” It would seem that Jesus is critiquing the way this group attempted to protect their community from the evils of the world by separatism and hatred of outsiders. This parable is a timely...

The Path to Repentance and God's Faithfulness to Bring us Back - Matthew

9/10/2022
Sunday 11th September 2022 The Path To Repentance And God's Faithfulness To Bring Us Back | Matthew David was a man after God's own heart. However, he sinned by committing adultery with Bethsheba and having Uriah killed. Nonetheless, when Man fails God does not. He's faithful to leave the 99 and go after the one lost sheep.

Be An Apprentice | Rev. David Pileggi

9/4/2022
4th September 2022 13th Sunday after Pentecost. When considering discipleship we often fail to take into account the Jewish context of this practice. Young men would attach, or apprentice themselves to a teacher in order to be mentored in the ways of Torah. The goal was obedience leading to holiness. In the New Testament holiness comes through such apprenticeship to Jesus. But as attractive as holiness might be, we often find ourselves facing challenges from our families or culture, and many...

Good Table Manners Or More? | Rev. David Pileggi

8/27/2022
28 August 2022 - 12th Sunday after Pentecost - For the third time in Luke, Jesus dined with the Pharisees and while there he healed a man and used the opportunity to teach. His instruction on how to behave at such events was not just good social advice for the times, but more essentially it's a challenge for his followers to live in such a way that reveals God’s generous nature with the undeserving. He also reminds us that it is not wrong to expect a reward but that compensation will come...

Jesus vs. Judaism (or just plain ol’ human nature?) | Rev. David Pileggi

8/20/2022
21 August 2022 - 11th Sunday After Pentecost - On his way to Jerusalem, Jesus healed a crippled woman on the Sabbath which resulted in a clash with a synagogue official. At first glance, this might seem to be just another encounter between Jesus and the religious authorities. Yet when viewed in its historic context, this incident may have more to do with human nature than just a theological issue and it demonstrates the subtle danger of letting our personalities, traditions, politics or...

Lord, teach us to pray | Rev. Aaron Eime

7/25/2022
24 July 2022 - Seventh Sunday After Pentecost - Prayer is more than simply talking to God. Prayer in Hebrew is a reflexive verb meaning that prayer has a very real effect on us. It is a dialogue with the divine in which God speaks to us as much as we speak to Him. Readings: Hosea 1:2-10; Psalm 85; Luke 11:1-13 Blessed by our teachings?

In Praise of a 'Tricky Lawyer' | Rev. David Pileggi

7/11/2022
10 July 2022 - Fifth Sunday after Pentecost - We are in a wonderful time in our cycle of readings, walking with Jesus to Jerusalem. I want to remind folks that Jesus’ teaching in Luke 10 is not just some ideal but was connected to the culture. In a day with no Internet, no podcasts, no YouTube, any itinerant teacher was “tested" with questions. It was not necessarily malicious. We must be grateful to that lawyer who asked, “Who is my neighbor?” Jesus’ answer is as pertinent today as it was...

How to be urgent and not panic | Rev. David Pileggi

7/4/2022
3 July 2022 - 4th Sunday after Pentecost - In our Gospel passage today, Jesus was aware that the national situation was desperate and people were growing frustrated and fearful, some even panicking and turning to extremism as they looked for the answer. In this context, Jesus sent out the 70 with urgent instructions to heal the sick and proclaim the Kingdom of God, and not to become diverted along the way. This passage surely speaks to us today. It is a powerful reminder that in our...
