Sermons on Luke

Interrogation: King Herod

This Sunday’s service will be experienced as Passion Sunday, a somber reflection on the cruelty Jesus experienced in his last few hours before the crucifixion.

I Don’t Know How to Love Him

This Sunday’s service explores one of the New Testament’s most enigmatic characters. Mary Magdalene can be found throughout the Gospels and is arguably the most important woman in Jesus’ earthly life – aside from his mother.

Hosanna / Pilate’s Dream

This Sunday, we celebrate Palm Sunday (early) and ask ourselves important questions about our Lenten preparations and about what is worth celebrating in our faith.

Heaven on Their Minds

This Sunday we enter the season of Lent and our Jesus Christ Superstar series with the opening song, “Heaven on Their Minds.” This song critiques Jesus and the disciples, and while it is from Judas’ perspective, it is also very much from “the outside looking in.” Our scriptures for this Sunday echo a similar perspective.

The Astounded Crowd

This Sunday, our Discipleship series concludes with Jesus’ transfiguration on a mountain. It is good to explore this text in the aftermath of #GC2019 so that we may listen more carefully for Jesus’ teaching and live more fully as the body of Christ.

The Questioning Crowd

This Sunday, our Discipleship series continues Jesus’ sermon on a plain with one of the most difficult instructions imaginable: love your enemies.

The Expectant Crowd

This final Sunday in our series on reading the Bible, we turn to the final book of the New Testament: Revelation. Adam Marshall-Lopez, our Candidate for Ministry, brings our message this Sunday, asking important questions about how we read this controversial letter in modern times.

The Gospels

This fourth Sunday in our series on reading the Bible, we continue our exploration of the sacred texts that make up the Christian Bible with the core writings that help Christians claim their unique identity of faith: the Gospels.

Epiphany

On this Epiphany Sunday, we begin a series on how we read our Bibles, which can be an epiphany for us—a sudden and beautiful awareness of the divine.
