What I’m Thinking: Welcome God’s Children

Christianity isn’t about competition. It’s about welcoming God’s children. Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the end of chapter nine of Mark’s Gospel (Mark 9:38-50). This appears to continue on the same conversation from last week’s reading, the reading in which Jesus clarified that greatness is to be found in service. So that means that […]

Sermon: Greatness

September 19, 2021 Psalm 54Mark 9:30-37 by Eric Anderson ‘Elepaio are among the most curious of creatures. It serves them well when seeking food, because the insects they feed on hide in a lot of different places.

What I’m Thinking: Greatness

Through history, people have debated the nature of greatness. Jesus didn’t settle the argument – it rages still – but it’s clear where he stood. Greatness is service of neighbor. Here’s a transcript: I’m thinking about the ninth chapter of Mark’s Gospel (Mark 9:30-37). Now in last week’s gospel lesson, Jesus for the first time […]

Sermon: Weird Wisdom

September 12, 2021 Proverbs 1:20-33Mark 8:27-38 by Eric Anderson The pollywog enjoyed his life. It was a simple life, with enough variety to keep things interesting without making things so interesting that, well, it got dangerous. He lived in a smallish pond that predatory creatures pretty much ignored during that crucial time that he was […]
