Sermons on Luke
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.
Our talented and dedicated choir leads us through the joys and sorrows of this important day through the eyes of the very human Apostle Peter in a a beautiful musical presentation, “Upon This Rock.”
Bailey Brawner leads us through a reflection on the Parable of the Prodigal Son as we work to be open to God’s perspective and really allow ourselves to be known by God.
Adam will be leads us through a reflection on the Parable of the Fig Tree as we contemplate God’s care and nurture in this holy season.
Our scripture passage for this second Sunday in Lent has us contemplating the nature of God. Jesus describes himself in a somewhat surprising way…like a mother hen who wants to gather in all of her baby chicks.
Today we introduce our Lenten theme, “Full to the Brim.” We will contemplate what we need to “do” or “undo” in order to lean into the abundant life God offers.
This Sunday will mark the end of the season of Epiphany, a season when the identity and mission of Jesus are revealed in small and large ways. Our text for this week is Luke’s account of the Transfiguration, arguably the grandest of all the epiphany accounts.
We continue this week in Jesus’ sermon on the plain. Last week we contemplated what Jesus’ “blessings and woes” told us about God. This week we dive into what that might look like, in practical terms, for each one of us.
Come with us as we challenge our mainstream understanding of the word “blessed” and expand our thinking, seeing and understanding beyond “me” to embrace a divine sense of “we.”
After a demoralizing night of attempted fishing, Jesus instructs Simon to go back out into the deep waters and drop his nets for a catch. Miraculously, Simon pulls in such an abundance of fish that other boats and fisherfolks come to his aid.
