Pastor’s Corner: Every Week There’s a Story

March 3, 2021 This Pastor’s Corner is for the keiki of Church of the Holy Cross, and for everyone who is still young at heart. I’m still telling stories, friends. Before our Sunday School Zoom time formally began last Saturday, some of the families began connecting. It’s a wise thing to do with Zoom, since […]

Pastor’s Corner: Patience

February 24, 2021 I can’t remember the last time that I found it helpful when someone urged me to “be patient.” I’m sure those who’ve heard it from me – kids, friends, cousins, worshipers – haven’t found those words all that helpful, either.

Pastor’s Corner: Tears

February 17, 2021 This morning as I settled into my office – turned on the lights, started the computer, set the coffee to drip – a child in the classroom next door was crying bitterly. Sometimes life is hard. I don’t know what grief was pouring so tearfully from this child. It could have been […]

What I’m Thinking: Tossing Tables

Jesus entered the temple, saw the moneychangers and the cattle sellers, and started tossing tables around. He would probably do the same today… for what? Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the second chapter of John (John 2:13-22). It’s a familiar story, although its location in John’s Gospel may feel a little unfamiliar. Matthew, Mark, […]

Sermon: Strange Covenant

February 28, 2021 Psalm 22:23-31Mark 8:31-38 by Eric Anderson The fledglings were, well, fledged. Their wing feathers had grown in, and they’d taken their first flights.

What I’m Thinking: Burdens

Jesus told his listeners they would need to give up their lives to follow him. So why did they follow him? Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the eighth chapter of Mark’s Gospel (Mark 8:31-38). Curiously, our lectionary editors have omitted the conversation that actually opens this section of the book. In it, Jesus asked […]
