May 5, 2019 – At The Table

As we continue in our Easter celebrations this morning, we’re going to look at a well-known story from the book of Acts. By this point, some time has passed since the resurrection – thanks to the work of the Twelve and others, the gospel had spread from Jerusalem to...

April 21, 2019: Mary Magdalene & The Risen Jesus

Mary Magdalene had followed Jesus for months—possibly even years. The gospel of Luke tells us that he had healed her, and drove away the demons that haunted and hunted her, and afterwards she and a group of women helped provide for Jesus and the disciples as they...

Today, we start wrapping up our Lenten series, where we have heard the stories of faithful people who each followed Jesus in vastly different ways. But first, we’re going to hear from Luke’s account of Jesus riding in to Jerusalem for the last time. Scripture: Luke...

April 7, 2019: Dr. Ida Scudder – Visionary & Missionary

As we’ve journeyed through Lent, we have heard the stories of ministers, prophets, rebels, saints, and celebrities. But today, as we continue our series of stories of faithful people, we’re going to talk about a woman who is well-known and well-loved in certain parts...

March 31, 2019: St. Therese of Lisieux – The Little Flower

We continue this morning in our series called In The Name of Jesus, telling the stories of seven faithful people who came before us – each of whom followed Jesus in their own very particular way. We’ve already heard the stories of Fred Rogers, Harriet Tubman, and the...

March 24, 2019: Elijah – The Great Prophet

As we continue our Lenten sermon series focused on telling the stories of the faithful people who have gone before us, this week we’re going to switch it up a little bit. Rather than tell a contemporary story, we’re going to flip all the way back in our Bibles to the...

March 17, 2019: Harriet Tubman

Today, we continue our sermon series called In The Name of Jesus – we’re spending the season of Lent looking at 7 very different people who lived out their faith in very particular ways. Last week, we heard about Rev. Fred Rogers, and this week we’re jumping back a...

March 10, 2019: Fred Rogers – The Good Neighbor

In 1992, one Fred Rogers was invited to commencement at Boston University, where he was to give the invocation or prayer at the beginning of the ceremony and later receive an honorary degree. But when he was introduced, the graduates – who had all grown up watching...

March 3, 2019: Pearls in Paper Cups

Today, we’re taking a short break from the gospels to do a deep dive with Second Corinthians. I’m going to spend a little more time than usual filling in the background, because for us to read Paul’s letters today is like overhearing someone on the phone – you only...

February 24, 2019: Say What?!

Today, we pick up right where we left off last week in the gospel according to Luke. Jesus is standing on a level place, surrounded by crowds who had come to him from all over Judea, hoping to learn and be healed and see the man who does miracles. Just before this,...
