Sermons on Luke

A New Kingdom Ethic

Rev. Lydia Sohn from St. Mark’s UMC will bring Sunday’s message and she shares the following: This is Palm Sunday, the day where we usher in Jesus as the King of the Jews and recognize his true authority. The people back then had no idea that Jesus’ kingdom would look vastly different from the political kingdoms of old and new. Jesus’ kingdom was about love, sacrifice, compassion, and service.

Gratitude and Abundance

Rev. Jeri Newell-Davis from St. Mark’s UMC will bring Sunday’s message and she shares the following: Many of you may be feeling a bit anxious about staying indoors during this pandemic, and I don’t blame you. This is not what we are accustomed to. We are creatures of habit, people who like our freedom. But I know the pandemic will end and we will have the freedom to go about our routines once again. And we will give thanks when this season has ended.

A Table of Gifts

As we enter this Lenten season of spiritual introspection, we continue our exploration of gratitude. Last week’s message began with a question about where we find God, and this Sunday’s message draws the illustration of gathering around God’s table. This is a time of sharing in the abundance of God’s gifts!

The Journey to Joy

Jesus’ parents present him at the temple, they offer a sacrifice, and a priest and a prophet revel at Jesus’ presence.

Creativity in Action

In the face of weakened values and faltering structures, ninistry candidate Lea Booth invites us to consider how we can become co-creators in bringing about God’s vision and dream for the world.

Living

Chaplain Mark Jones explores how Jesus moves from a question about the afterlife to challenge listeners’ perception of who God is and what it means to trust God.

Breaking Some Rules

Jesus Christ Superstar

This Sunday is Easter Sunday! The day includes a sunrise service on Mission Bay, a fundraiser pancake breakfast, our traditional services with a brass quintet, and an Easter egg hunt for children. Jesus is risen! Hallelujah! Death isn’t the end! Love doesn’t die!
