Unmeasurable Faith

10/3/2022
(Natalia Terfa) The disciples plead for Jesus to increase their faith in today’s Gospel. Boy haven’t we all been there? When things are hard and we feel overwhelmed, sometimes it feels like if we only had just a little more faith, we’d be ok. Jesus’ words today remind us that measurements of faith are not the point. So what is? Scripture: Luke 17:5-10 Song: Kyoto by Dawn by Ooyy & Smartface Support our podcast here Watch the Livestream Follow us on Instagram Visit our Website

Unfixing Chasms and Creating Connections

9/26/2022
(Amy Courts) Today's scripture leaves us pondering many questions: Where did this chasm come from? what fixed it? Where/what is hades? Why and how is this rich man tormented there? and finally, how does this apply to our lives today?

It’s Who You Know

9/19/2022
(Chad Brekke) Jesus shares the Parable of the Dishonest Manager with us, and boy this scripture reading is not one most would want to preach on their first Sunday back from sabbatical! How can we exist in today's capitalistic society when Jesus says you cannot serve God and wealth?

The Joy of Being Found

9/12/2022
(Natalia Terfa) On this Great POP Get Together, it is such a delight that the text in front of us today are celebration texts of lost being found. Over and over and over again in Luke’s Gospel, Jesus reminds the disciples, and us, that no matter how lost we may feel, God will not give up until we are found.

A Dose of Reality

9/9/2022
(Natalia Terfa) Jesus has been attracting large crowds who are awed and amazed by his words and miraculous acts. Their enthusiasm to be a part of the cool crowd is palpable. Jesus lays down a hard truth for those who seek to follow him. What does it mean to give up everything? What does it look like to follow Jesus in this way?

Where Do We Go From Here? (I’ve Been Meaning to Ask...)

8/29/2022
(Natalia Terfa) After the loss of loved ones disrupts their lives, Ruth and Naomi create a new covenant with each other, choosing to be in a relationship across their religious, cultural, and generational divides. As women, they build power together in a system where they have little power. This final question is not meant to be the end of the journey; instead, it creates openness to explore together what is next. It is contextual, designed for individuals, families, churches, and...

What Do You Need? (I’ve Been Meaning to Ask...)

8/22/2022
(Jenny Sung) In the midst of Job’s afflictions, three of his friends promptly leave their homes and come to him. They tear their garments, weep loudly, and sit with him for seven days, saying nothing. Their response is the ministry of presence, of true solidarity, of seeing his excruciating pain and joining him there. It reminds us that we each have unique needs; we can’t assume to know what is best for others. It also prompts us to reflect on our own needs, priorities, and desires, which...

Ask The Pastors (I’ve Been Meaning to Ask...)

8/15/2022
(Natalia Terfa & Jenny Sung) As we do from time to time, we put the usual preaching schedule on hold while we explore public theology together. We will again field questions from the congregation around the theme of things that cause us to doubt or question.

Where Does It Hurt? (I’ve Been Meaning to Ask...)

8/8/2022
(Natalia Terfa) This week’s question implies that all of us have known pain and suffering. In order to cultivate connection, we must first get curious about the pain others carry and the pain we carry ourselves. Before we can act, we must first acknowledge and believe the pain is real, for bearing witness to each other’s pain helps us cultivate compassion.

Where Are You From? (I’ve Been Meaning to Ask...)

8/1/2022
(Jenny Sung) The story of Jesus calling the disciples provides a helpful charge for the whole series: to “come and see” what the journey holds. In this first week, we wish to address how the question, “Where are you from?” is sometimes coupled with assumptions, judgments, and even microaggressions—all of which can be exhausting and painful to receive. Our hope is to acknowledge, disrupt, and release the assumptions we hold about others. In order to build connection and trust, we need to...

At The Feet of Jesus

7/18/2022
(Jenny Sung) Maybe the story of Martha and Mary is more about throwing cultural norms out the window. Because of who God is we are no longer prisoners to “shoulds” and “oughts” We are resurrection people do we live most of our lives as prisoners captive to the demands and expectations of this world or do we live like people who have been set free and extend that freedom to others?

Among the Wolves

7/4/2022
(Jenny Sung) Jesus sends out the 72 without anything except one another and the wild Holy Spirit. How do we respond when it feels like we are among the wolves? How is God inviting us to be glimpses of the dome where God reigns on earth as it is in heaven? How can we share the gifts God gave us such as grace and love which leads to life and freedom. Instead of succumbing to the tools, the world uses that lead to death and destruction? Scripture: Luke 10:1-11, 16-20 Song: Love Love by...

Fruit Season

6/27/2022
(Natalia Terfa) A well-known set of verses are in front of us today, but I wonder if we’ve ever subjected these “fruits of the spirit” to the text-context loop I talked about a few weeks ago. We are reminded that when the spirit is present and active, certain “fruit” follows. How might we seek this kind of fruit season work and life in our current day and time?

Unbound

6/20/2022
(Jenny Sung) The glory of God is humans fully alive, and yet the world often prefers us bound. How is the Good News of God inviting us into fullness and deliverance? Can we even imagine what it could feel like to be that free? Scripture: Luke 8:26-39 Song: Demons (In My Mind) by Lvly feat.

Wild and Free

6/13/2022
(Natalia Terfa) Jesus tells the disciples that the spirit will come to help guide them and lead them and speak for God out in the world once Jesus is gone. What does this mean exactly? How do we know what to look for and who to listen to? Who or what is the Holy Spirit anyway?

Captivity, Usefulness, and Liberation in the Kingdom of God

5/30/2022
(Natalia Terfa) This story from Acts is not one we are drawn to like some of the others in this Easter Season. The story about a slave who stops being useful and how Paul and Silas interact with her and the system that responds to her liberation with more captivity has a lot to say to us today as we are left in the ashes of the Uvalde school shooting.

Surprising, Prevailing, Foreign Hospitality Built The Church

5/23/2022
(Chad Brekke) The Bible is full of stories of people who never should have met, changing the course of history. Only two of these stories include the kind of hospitality that won’t take no for an answer, and one of those involves the risen Christ! Have you ever considered that accepting the hospitality of others is sometimes the Christian thing to do?

All Things New

5/16/2022
(Natalia Terfa) We don’t often spend a lot of time in the book of Revelation. Honestly, it scares a lot of people thanks to things like the Left Behind series or any artistic rendering of the end times. But what if there is more within this book to offer hope rather than scare us?
