The Christmas Present

A Sermon for Christmas Eve, 2017, based on Luke 2:11-12 What is the worst Christmas present you’ve ever gotten? When I was a little boy, I thought that pretty much every Christmas gift that wasn’t a video game or at least a toy was the worst Christmas present I’d ever gotten. To shirts, I’d say “Why?” To socks? “Are you kidding me?” To a book? Well, it could be worse… (It…

Overshadowed

A Sermon for December 24, 2017, based on Luke 1:26-38 Have you ever found yourself in way over your head? I know this is probably silly compared to some of your experiences, but it felt like a really big deal to me at the time. I played trumpet in the band in middle school. As we were all headed to high school the next year, we were supposed to go at a particular time to…

Aha!

A Sermon for April 30, 2017 on Acts 2:36-41, Luke 24:13-35 Have you ever had a moment when something you’ve been trying to understand just… clicks?  I’ve heard of this happening to some people as they learn to read.

Watching and Waiting

A Sermon on Habakkuk 1:1-4, 2:1-4 and Luke 19:1-10 I love the story of Zacchaeus. It says he was a ruler, a rich tax collector. The world labels him a sinner. Zacchaeus seeks out Jesus– just to catch a glimpse of him. Although the crowds prevent him from seeing Jesus, Zacchaeus perseveres, degrading himself by climbing a sycamore tree. And even as Zacchaeus is…

Heart Matters

A Sermon on Luke 18:9-14 Note: The audio for this sermon was unfortunately lost (along with the device it was recorded on). We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience! We expect audio to be available again for the Sunday, October 30 sermon. What a wonderful parable Jesus tells about the Pharisee and the Tax Collector. It’s meaning is so clear. It doesn’t take a bible…

Lost Lives

A sermon on Luke 15:1-10. Our reading has us think about lost sheep and lost coins. But today leads us to consider lost sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers– specifically those that were lost 15 years ago today at the twin towers, the Pentagon, and a field just north of Shanksville, PA.
