“Pushed to the Limit”- Luke 4: 21-30– Jan. 31, 2016

Last week on “Galilean Diaries,” also known as The Gospel of Luke, we saw Jesus having returned from 40 days and nights in the wilderness, where he was tested by Satan before he could begin his public ministry. Jesus was “filled with the power of the Spirit,” we were told, and word of his presence, his power, and his wisdom …

“Fulfilled Today”– Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6,8-10, Luke 4:14-21– Jan. 24, 2016

Sermon January 24 “Fulfilled Today” For many different reasons I’m glad I don’t live in Iowa or New Hampshire. I cannot imagine the barrage of phone calls, tv and radio ads, let alone door-to-door canvassers that have invaded these two states as the first Presidential primaries draw near. I remind myself, as tired as I am of the daily stream …

“So Much More”– John 2:1-11– Jan. 17, 2016

We are a culture of sound bytes and rapid images, of information technology and data. And so we have a tendency to dismiss stories as nice but useless, not nearly as important as scientific findings and reports; and, really, who has time to listen to stories? My father-in-law used to say that if you want the unvarnished truth, ask someone …

“Through the Deep Waters” –Isaiah 43:1-7, Luke 3:15-17, 21-22 –Jan. 10, 2016

The season of Epiphany begins with a journey–the journey of the magi to where the Christ Child was. Guided by a star, we are told, they ventured forth from the comforts of home and familiarity, across unforgiving deserts, away from seductive tyrants, and finally to the peasant home where they found the child and his mother. And there they knelt …

No-rehearsal Christmas Pageant

On Sunday morning December 20, the “No-rehearsal Christmas Pageant” had the old, old story told in rhyme, with volunteers from the congregation spontaneously getting up and getting costumed quickly …as shepherds, angels, animals, and Mary and Joseph! The impromptu casting had the youth leader and the bell choir director as sheep, pastor as one of three angels, and a very …

“On Bended Knee” –Isaiah 60:1-6, Matthew 2:1-12 –Epiphany Sun.–Jan. 3, 2016

On Bended Knee The story of the magi is a story for our time. In the midst of the incredible run of the latest Star Wars movie–”The Force Awakens”–already having grossed a billion dollars–how perfect is this story of wise men who study the stars! It lifts our eyes to the heavens, beyond our narrow, often petty, concerns, and draws …
