  • Jesus Feeds 5000 Followers

    Pastor Beth begins her sermon with a very loving story concerning her own family. She goes on to talk about John’s gospel, 6:1-21, revealing the mystery of God when Jesus fed the 5000 followers with only five barley loves and two fishes. God is generous. That the feeding happened is what matters; not how it… Read more

  • Divine Play, Divine Hospitality, Divine Rest

    We’ve all seen and heard the phrase “God’s Work, Our Hands”, but what does this really mean? Bishop Hanson stated, “We do God’s work not because God needs us to do so, but because our neighbor does”. In Pastor Eric’s sermon today, he reminds us that doing God’s work has three elements:  Divine Play, Divine Hospitality,… Read more

  • Prophets and Punctuation – ????

    What do Prophets and Semi-colons have in common?  They are little used and poorly understood – now and in Jesus’s day.  Pastor Beth connects stories of the prophet Amos with a current day prophet, Amy Bleuel, of Project Semi-Colon.  Amy lost her father to suicide ten years ago and wanted to honor her father with… Read more

  • God’s Love is like shade on a hot day.

    In Mark 6:1-13, Jesus calls his twelve disciples and starts to send them out, two by two, with nothing but the clothes on their body, the sandals on their feet and a staff because God’s Grace will take care of them. Pastor Eric spoke of how God’s Love comes down on us abundantly. God’s Love… Read more

  • In Christ, there is mercy–even for one like me!

    In today’s Gospel Lesson (Mark 4: 21-45), Jesus healed a hemmorhaging woman and Jairus’ daughter.  For the sermon, Pastor Beth wrote a dramatic reading which was shared by two women in the congregation–Amy B. and Joyce B.   In Pastor Beth’s creative interpretation of these stories, we dig a little deeper and see how, although life… Read more

  • Going to the “Other Side”

    The Gospel lesson in Mark 4 is essentially about “crossing to the other side”. Jesus was traveling to the “other side” in a boat with his disciples. As Jesus slept, the storm brewed, and the disciples woke him for help. Jesus rebuked the wind and there was calm. Jesus asked, “Have you no faith?” Whether… Read more
