September 6 Worship Service: Looking for Good News
This video includes a prelude, sermon, communion, and benediction from our drive-in and zoom hybrid service on September 6. Our theme was "looking for good news," with scripture readings from Romans 13:8-14 and Mark 1:1-8.
We are a Movement
Part I of a series on the Identity of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ): "We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.”
Wholeness in Hidden Figures
A meditation on the story of Ruth. Wholeness is written on the lives of hidden figures often hiding in plain sight.
A Song in the Desert
A short meditation inspired on finding inspiration in times of struggle.
A Bend in the Road
A sermon for April 26, 2020 from Matthew 16:13-26, for a time when the way ahead is uncertain, and we are called to trust in the journey. God is with us when we can't see past the bend in the road.
The Body of God
In this sermon for the second Sunday after Easter, I ask us to wonder about the revelation of God in our bodies. Psalm 16 provides food for thought about refuge and materiality, and we consider the upper room from our places of physical distancing.
Words have power, and our Easter faith calls us to bring the language of light and hope to a world that needs a change. Resurrection is the transformation this world needs.
Through the Lens of Resistance
For this Palm Sunday message, we look at the story through the lens of resistance. What does this Holy Week call us to meet with a spirit of Palm Sunday Protest?
Prayer is a Force for Just Community
Our second week of online only worship. This message is a survey of themes that come from the Lord's Prayer in Matthew.
We are in community of sojourners; of one Spirit and Source but as yet only partial participants in the wholeness, the shalom of God.
