Episodes

"Coming to Believe"

4/28/2019
More
How do we “get to” belief? And how do we bring others to that same experience? It is fascinating that Jesus does not instruct his disciples to coerce belief in others. In the dual encounters described in today’s text, Jesus invites and inspires! How might we do the same?

"Beyond Imagining", Easter

4/21/2019
More
Sometimes we struggle to believe something because it seems improbable or difficult. And then there are those moments when we are stretched “beyond belief” to see something that we could not even imagine. Though we take the Resurrection for granted, it is truly “beyond belief” for Jesus’ first followers. It transforms their world and ours as well; far beyond what we could have imagined!

Easter Sunrise Service

4/21/2019
More

Duration:00:12:54

"Pet Rocks & The Big Reveal", Palm Sunday

4/14/2019
More
We delight in the Hosanna celebrations of Palm Sunday. Why, if we didn’t proclaim our praise, even the stones would shout out! But how long will we follow Jesus with such passion? A few hours? A few days? All the way to the cross?

Duration:00:24:08

"Gratitude"

4/7/2019
More
If gratitude is expected, why is it so hard to receive? If gratitude is good, why is it so hard to do? Sometimes we learn how to give and receive gratitude from the most unlikely persons in the most unexpected places.

"Whom Shall I Fear?"

3/17/2019
More
When we hear the question of the sermon title, “Whom shall I fear”, we start creating a list of our own. There are fearful things in our lives and in our world. But the psalmist’s words and Jesus’ actions are a counsel to the fear that stirs within us. Fear is not to be our guide!

"It's Always a Test!" (First Sunday of Lent)

3/10/2019
More
The testing of Jesus in the Wilderness is as much a revelation as the transfiguration on the mountaintop. The temptation shows us what Jesus is about, and how he will choose to fulfill his call. It is not that temptation happens nowhere else (it does daily). Rather his story is a reminder that our hope is found in his faithfulness to the path that will lead to the cross. Scripture Texts: Luke 4:1-13; Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16

Duration:00:17:58

"Holy Residue!"

3/3/2019
More
There is something about an encounter with the “Holy” that transforms. It made Moses “glow” with a brightness that the people could not handle. What makes us “glow” in the encounters with God? Where do we see the “glow” when it is not so obvious? What is the character of holiness that we encounter? Scripture Texts: Exodus 34:29-35; 2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2; Luke 9:28-36

Duration:00:18:33

“Called by Name”

1/13/2019
More
The testimony of the prophet Isaiah reminds us that we are called and claimed by God. Like Jesus in the waters of baptism, we are claimed as God’s own precious children. How do we reflect that truth in our lives?

Duration:00:17:11

“Better Late than Never”

1/6/2019
More
The coming of the Magi doesn’t fit our customary Christmas celebration. They leave early and arrive late! What perspective of the Savior can we gain from considering their timing and the character of their gifts?

Duration:00:12:51

“Come to Save Us” (4th Sunday of Advent)

12/23/2018
More
On this last Sunday before Christmas, we remember both the marvel of and the reason for Jesus’ coming; as our Savior, the One who is Christ the Lord!

Duration:00:17:10

Christmas Cantata

12/9/2018
More
On this day when the testimony of Christ’s coming arrival is offered through scripture and a variety of choral music by our chancel choir, we will consider the path prepared for his coming through the prophet of the most high, John the Baptist.

Duration:00:38:52

"The Days are Surely Coming!”

12/2/2018
More
Entering Advent, many of us look forward to the celebration of the birth of our Lord. But this season provides us still more to look forward to. It offers us the challenge of seeing our world and lives in the light of God’s promises “still to come”.

Duration:00:19:56

"Whom Will You Serve?"

8/26/2018
More
Serving God is more than declaring God as your “divine mascot”, or claiming that you are a fan of that “team”. The call to serve is to commit one’s life and future into the hands of the One who have chosen to serve. What does that look like in our day?

Duration:00:12:19

"Living the Truth"

8/12/2018
More
Speaking the truth is a challenging task. It is all too easy to convince ourselves of truths that are self-serving. That is not a new behavior. But in our day, when there are many alternatives offered as the truth, we need to be thoughtful and careful about the truths that guide not only what we say, but also our life behaviors as those who follow Christ.

Duration:00:20:04

"God Provides"

8/5/2018
More
How does God provide? The manna in the wilderness was a clear sign and act of God’s providence. God provides daily bread for a traveling people. But is it not also God’s providence that provides the gifts and skills that a community needs to both survive and thrive? How do we participate in God’s providence as followers of Christ?

Duration:00:14:37

"Abundance"

7/29/2018
More
The Kingdom of God is about abundance. But abundance is not discovered in accumulation. Abundance is revealed in distribution! In sharing! In a time when the inclination to “possess” is rampant, how do we find our way to the Gospel perspective of living with abundance?
