“The Longing”– Isaiah 2:1-5, Matthew 24:36-44– Nov. 27, 2016

How ironic–and typical–that just when we need to have a clear eye and ready energy, we are stuffed and sleepy from our Thanksgiving feasts. Of course, merchants and advertisers call us to frantic, competitive shopping, our eyes open to the best deal, but Advent’s call to alertness and readiness to perceive God’s coming in new ways into our lives? Not …

“Holding All Things Together”- Jeremiah 23:1-6, Colossians 1:11-20–Nov. 20, 2016

When you log into a computer, the first picture that usually comes on the screen is called the “desktop”–a term that conjures up a flat wooden surface with cubbyholes and jars of pens and pencils, but that is not what a computer desktop is. On a computer desktop are all sorts of little pictures, called icons, which represent the various …

“For Such a Time as This”– Isaiah 65:17-25, Luke 21:5-19 — Nov. 13, 2016

What’s the worst thing that has happened to you when you claimed to be a Christian? I don’t know about you, but I’m almost ashamed to say that I’ve gotten off pretty easily. I have been dismissed and ignored for being Christian. I have been patronized–”Oh, how nice.” I’ve been in some rather uncomfortable conversations, mainly with people who don’t …

“The Day Begins at Night”– Haggai 1:15b-2:9, 2 Thess. 2:1-5, 13-17–Nov. 3, 2016

I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the “Anti-Christ,” so I’m always caught up short when these passages from the later Christian writings–like 2 Thessalonians or Revelation– come up in the lectionary and warn us about the “lawless one” or the Antichrist. I will confess to you that in the past, I have entertained the possibility that one …

“Where do we stand?”– Habakkuk 1:1-4, 2:1-4, Luke 19:1-10– Oct. 30 2016

Some of you know that before I went to seminary, I was enrolled in a graduate program in dance. Other than the ballroom dancing classes I was forced to go to as a child–and loathed–, I never went to a dance class until I was in college. I was a jock, not an artist. But I fell in love with …
