What I’m Thinking: Fulfillment Defined

When John the Baptist asked Jesus if he was the one they’d been expecting, Jesus not only answered the question, he defined what kind of Messiah he would be. Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the eleventh chapter of Matthew’s Gospel (Matthew 11:2-11), in which we find John the Baptist no longer baptizing in the […]

Sermon: Baptist at the Party

December 4, 2022 Isaiah 11:1-10Matthew 3:1-12 by Eric Anderson I went to seminary with a lot of Baptists. Andover Newton Theological School was closely related to the United Church of Christ on the one hand and to the American Baptist Churches on the other.

Christmas Fund 2022

The Advent season of waiting and watching is also a season of preparing. Our generosity prepares the way for hope, peace, justice and community. United Church of Christ retired clergy, servants of the church, have spent lifetimes baptizing and blessing, teaching and preaching, marrying and burying, comforting and empowering God’s people.

Incubation periods vary enough to make that difficult to determine. I do know that once symptoms hit late on a Tuesday evening, I had no […]

What I’m Thinking: John at the Riverside

John reminds us that discipleship rarely (if ever) means that we stay just the same. Here’s a transcript: On this second Sunday of Advent, I’m thinking about the third chapter of Matthew’s Gospel (Matthew 3:1-12).

Sermon: As Dawn Approaches

November 27, 2022 Isaiah 2:1-5Romans 13:11-44 by Eric Anderson Advent is almost the opposite of Thanksgiving. The Thanksgiving holiday is almost entirely about what’s taking place here and now. When we acknowledge the things we are grateful for, it’s the things that we have. The practice of giving thanks is, in fact, one of the […]
