Matthew 21:23-32

An immediate memory comes to mind whenever we come around to hearing this passage from Matthew. I am sitting in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd at General Seminary, I’m a senior and

listening with rapt attention to my academic advisor and the Dean of Stu...

How does Peter go from being the rock on which Jesus will build his church, to being the stumbling block in Jesus’ way?

Just like Peter I often do not want to hear what following Jesus entails. I did not want to deal with this gospel this week. I didn’t even want us to...

This morning let me just cut to the chase. If my sermon had a title it would be "Do I Embody My Intentions?"

I didn't used to really understand this word embodiment and what it means to embody something. Like many concepts I experienced it, before really "getting i...

Whenever I read a scripture story, the first thing I try and notice is how Jesus makes me feel. Does Jesus make me feel comforted? Calm my anxiety?  Or, dare I say, do I get ticked off - because I disagree with something Jesus says?

Of course, I also sometimes feel...

Exodus 19:2-8a

The people spoke to Moses as one – Everything the Lord has spoken we will do.

We haven’t heard from the Hebrew bible in a long time. In the unchartered frontier of regular online worship – trying to follow rubrics and with the reality of attention individu...

There is j...

It’s good to be with you this morning. Good to come together even if we can’t really be together. Good to hear the word of God. Good to pray. Good to sing. Good to hear recite the psalms, ancient p...

“Do not be afraid,” the angel says, “I know that you are looking for Jesus – but he is not here.” (Matthew 28:1-10) The gospel/sermon begins at 7:14 in the video below.

Last year on Easter Sunday – the headline of the Baltimore Sun proclaimed “Superbowl Sunday for churc...

This morning we hear from Paul's letter, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds." (Romans 12:2)

Do you remember Romper Room? I remember watching the 'teacher' in the show hold up a mirror and say, "I see Amy, I see Charlie,...

“What do we do to perform the works of God?” the disciples asked Jesus

“This is what you must do,” Jesus answered – “have faith”

That’s what we just heard (John 6:27-40). When Jesus says – believe in me – that means – have faith. Living our faith. That is godly work. Esp...
