Sermons on New Testament

Mobbed

Our Gospel reading is the account of “Legion,” a man occupied by many demons.  We explore this fascinating text, digging in a little deeper to find ways that this passage intersects with our lives..

Phun with Physics Philosophy and Phaith

Come and enjoy the “Phun” as Pat Walker journeys with us through the various mysteries in Physics, Philosophy and “Phaith.” With a pinch of humor, a shake of meaning, and a cup of faith, Pat walks with us as someone trying to understand and be thankful for it all. 

Too Hot to Handle

Pentecost is the fiftieth and last day of the Easter Season, the day the church received the gift of the Holy Spirit. It’s considered the “birthday of the church” as the gathered assembly received the Holy Spirit. How does the spirit break out of our expectations and become “too hot to handle,” even today?

Be Thou My Vision

Join us on Sunday as we explore these passages that remind us of the divine vision that guides, encourages and inspires us.

In and Out of God’s Way

Peter’s world was turned upside down when he realized the Holy Spirit was pushing and expanding the boundaries of their faith community in order to include those who had previously been adversaries.

Get Up

This week we spend time with the only woman in the Bible who is named as a disciple…Tabitha.  (Also known as Dorcas.)  (Which can be translated gazelle!)  Tabitha was well known in the community for her charitable spirit and good works supporting widows and the poor.

Instrument

Paul went from being early Christianity’s biggest threat to being its biggest proponent, following an unexpected and life-changing encounter with the risen Christ.  We may not match the high drama of Paul’s story, but what can we learn about how God transforms individual identity and uses us as instruments in God’s unfolding story?

Believe

It’s Jesus’ first post-resurrection appearance.  The disciples, understandably afraid, were holed up, locked inside, unsure and uncertain about what would happen next.  Jesus came to them, showed them his wounds and breathed the Holy Spirit upon them. Bring your hope, fear, doubts, struggles…bring it all and come as you are!

Living Into Resurrection

We have been intentional this Lent in our exploration of what it means to be “filled to the brim” and to lean into the abundant and expansive life to which God calls us.  There is no day that “overflows” with God’s love and grace more than Easter.

Good Friday: Were You There?

Good Friday marks the day when hate and fear did their worst…the day of Jesus’ crucifixion.  On this day of grief and sorrow, we will gather with one another, in God’s care, to remember Jesus’ death on a cross.
