“It doesn’t get any easier…” — Leviticus 19:1-2, 8-18, Matthew 5:38-48–Feb. 23, 2014

  For the past several weeks we’ve been reading along in what has come to be known as “the Sermon on the Mount,” that collection of sayings and teachings of Jesus that Matthew arranges together and sets it in the context of Jesus’ teaching his disciples “on the top of the mountain.”  Luke, as I mentioned last week, gathers up …

Lent and EAARTH

Lent and EAARTH (1) There are a number of ways to live Lent. One is to suffer a bit, to take on an extra burden or to give something up to emulate Christ’s taking up the cross and giving up his life. Another is to spend the time feeling guilty because you have not always been the fully alive human …

“If you don’t preach about climate change every 3-4 weeks,”

“If you don’t preach about climate change every 3-4 weeks,” I read in one of my preaching journals, “the time will come soon when you’ll have to preach about grief every week.” Wow. Overly dramatic? I don’t know, but it sure got my attention. Many environmentalists say we’re already past the tipping point where we’re entering uncharted territory with our …

“You have heard it said…”– Deut. 30:15-20, Matthew 5:21-37–Feb. 16, 2014

  Jesus started off so gently–”Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted…”    The writer of Matthew’s gospel arranges these teachings of Jesus into a sermon, beginning with what we call “the beatitudes,” or blessings.  All those gathered around Jesus could hear him speaking directly …

“God-Colors and -Flavors” — Isaiah 58:1-9, Matthew 5:13-20 — Feb. 9, 2014

In what seems to be our typical fashion, we have taken too much of a good thing and made it too much.  We have taken salt–a natural flavoring and preservative and component of our bodies–and put tons of it in our food, especially our processed food, so that millions of us now have to avoid salt.  It raises our blood …

“Super Blessing”–Micah 6:1-8, Matthew 5:1-12–February 2, 2014

Not only is the clash in this evening’s Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos; there also couldn’t be a more clear clash of values between the Super Bowl and the Beatitudes, which happen to be the reading from Matthew’s gospel this morning. Consider this: I read that the average ticket price at today’s game in the …
