What I’m Thinking: Contributing

  In the sixth chapter of John, we hear the famous story of Jesus feeding five thousand people – once a young man has contributed five loaves and two fish. It didn’t seem like much, but it made a difference. Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the sixth chapter of John’s Gospel today (John 6:1-21). It […]

Sermon: Stone by Stone

July 22, 2018 Ninth Sunday after Pentecost Ephesians 2:11-22 British author L. P. Hartley opened his novel The Go-Between with these words: “The past is a foreign country. They do things differently there.” And I would guess that you had some sense of the foreignness of the first century as Gloria read these words from […]

Pastor’s Corner: It Gets Better

July 3, 2018 “And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13) Love may be the greatest (and the greatest challenge), but faith and hope may be the virtues of our day.

What I’m Thinking: Not Alone

  Jesus wasn’t well received in his home town of Nazareth. He was amazed by their unbelief. It prompted him to greater activity, not less: he dispatched his closest friends to teach, to heal, and to build up the Realm of God. Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the sixth chapter of Mark (Mark 6:1-13), in […]

Sermon: Stretch Out, Now

July 1, 2018 Sixth Sunday after Pentecost Mark 5:21-43 If there is one thing I could use in my life right now, it’s healing. To start with the most trivial, I’m pleased to say that I’m getting over this cough I’ve had, but this has been one stubborn little virus, and I know a number […]

What I’m Thinking: Beyond Expectation

  Twice in Mark 5:21-43, Jesus heals when people think he can’t. A woman touches him in a crowd – and she’s healed. A child who has died rises again to life. Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the fifth chapter of Mark (Mark 5:21-43), today, in which a woman found healing beyond expectation simply […]

Sermon: Very, Very Special

June 24, 2018 Fifth Sunday after Pentecost Mark 4:35-41 The power of nature can be, probably always should be, a scary thing: something to stimulate the fear that becomes caution, consideration, respect. The prayer of Breton fishermen could be echoed by ocean voyagers of every sea and every language: “O God, thy sea is so […]
