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 […]

Sermon: Lift Up Your Soul

February 21, 2021 Psalm 25:1-10Mark 1:9-15 by Eric Anderson The young lau’ipala didn’t want to go to school. That’s not all that unusual for a young lau’ipala, or a yellow tang in English. They’re not generally a schooling fish, unlike the moi or the ‘ahi, at least when they’re young. Like most of those his […]

What I’m Thinking: Aid, Truth, and Mercy

In Psalm 25, the poet asks God for aid and support, for truth, and for mercy. These are three of the great ingredients of faith. Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the 25th Psalm (Psalm 25:1-10). We enter Lent this week, and Lent is very much a time oriented toward personal introspection, although we have […]

Sermon: Keep Silent

February 14, 2021 2 Kings 2:1-12Mark 9:2-9 by Eric Anderson The myna was certain that the kolea couldn’t talk. Initially, of course, that had to do with the myna himself. It’s hard to demonstrate that you can talk if the bird talking to you won’t stop talking. That’s what happened, of course. The myna settled […]

Pastor’s Corner: Social Devotional

February 10, 2021 Lent begins in just seven days – as I said in my sermon last week, however, with the pandemic still at large in the world, I feel as if last year’s Lent never quite ended. We continue to endure a lot of deprivation, and the discipline of distance is wearing awfully thin. […]
