“Jerusalem”: a word of belonging. (Luke 13:31-35)

3/17/2019
More
“Jerusalem”: a word of belonging. The city of heavenly peace, the city where all Jews feel they “belong,” should have been a safe haven for the Son of God in a sinful world, and yet, it was the most dangerous place of all. Jesus did not shy from His call, nor should we shrink from God’s purposes toward those who belonged, even if it was very hard.

"It is Written" -- A Word of Authority (Luke 4:1-13)

3/17/2019
More
“It is written” (Gegraptai): A word of authority. Jesus Himself was tempted by the devil. These were the best that the devil could throw at Him, and in all cases, Jesus turns to the Word for protection, and as His authority over the devil.

Love Does not Boast (Luke 9:28-36)

3/4/2019
More
God is all-powerful, and yet, God is Love. What does "Love does not boast" mean for us, who live in such an imperfect world? Our gospel reading shows us how there is another reality, so very close to the surface, but often unseen, where things are very different. Our normal reaction is to shrink back, but our God loves us. He doesn't boast, but humbles Himself, to reveal the truth in a way we can understand.

Love is not Arrogant (Luke 6:17-26)

2/24/2019
More
It is hard to live a life of unending wealth or comfort and not grow arrogant. But arrogance is not the way of love. God reminds us that only through humility, even if caused by poverty, can we truly receive His gift, given to the lost and the powerless.

Love is not Resentful (Luke 6:27-38)

2/24/2019
More
In our Epiphany readings this year, we are taking our cue from St. Paul’s famous chapter about Love. God is love. That means, among other things, that love was central to all Jesus did, and central to how He wants us to live. Each week, we will look at a description of “the gift of love” from Paul’s letter and apply it to the readings for the day. Today’s theme is Love is not resentful. When people hurt us or treat us like enemies, it is natural to “fight back.” But God calls us to leave...

Love bears, believes, hopes, endures all things

More
Jesus brings the word of God both to where it is welcome and where it is not.

Love is Patient and Kind

1/27/2019
More
John prepared the way for Jesus by preaching a warning of judgment and the need for repentance. But Jesus came to the waters of baptism not only to judge, but to cleanse. The love he shows is a love that reaches out over time and distance to those who are far away and lost.

Love does not insist on its own way

1/27/2019
More
God has every right to judge us, just as Jesus has every right to dictate the terms of his own “coming out.” But he shows his love and humility by coming out in service to others.

1/13/2019

The Depth of John's Vision (Luke 1:39-56)

12/24/2018
More
In the Gospel reading for today, Mary, already pregnant with Jesus, meets with her cousin Elizabeth. Elizabeth is herself pregnant with John the Baptist. Still in his mother's womb, John recognizes Jesus at the voice of His mother.

The Limits of John's Vision (Luke 7:18-35)

12/17/2018
More
Advent 3, Series C. Today we consider The Limits of John’s Vision. John had seen and recognized Jesus of Nazareth as the messiah, and had baptized Him. It was John’s place, and he was prepared, to fade away after that. While he sat in prison for offending King Herod and his wife, he heard news about Jesus and began to have doubts. Where was the fearsome judgment? Where was the power and the refiner’s fire? Jesus reassures John, then tells his listeners about both the John’s power and the...

"Wisdom" (Isaiah 29:13-16 & 1 Corinthians 1:18-31)

12/12/2018
More
Our Advent Mid-week Series this year is based on “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”, one of the most solemn Advent Hymns. Originally, this hymn was written in Latin and then translated into English by John Manson Neale in 1851. In the medieval church, this hymn was used during the week before Christmas in preparation to receive the promised Messiah. In this Sermon we meditate on the title from the second verse: "Wisdom."

Strength from the Vision (Luke 21:25-36)

12/4/2018

First Sunday in Advent. This year, we will be focusing most of our preaching on the vision of John the Baptist and what it means for us today. Our sermon today, though, sets the stage by talking about the vision that Jesus gives us for the second coming.
