Sermons on Matthew

I Only Want to Say

This Sunday’s song and text are among the most emotional of Jesus’ ministry. We are reminded us of Jesus’ humanity as he prays about being overwhelmed, about sorrow, and the plea to be spared from what he knows will come.

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.

By How & What You Give

Continuing our Stewardship series, we explore Jesus’ parable of the talents (the valuable coins). This parable reminds us that we are given gifts that must be nurtured to grow.

By Who & How You Love

As we continue our Stewardship series, we explore Jesus’ parable on sowing seeds in different kinds of soil. This parable reminds us that we must be prepared to receive the seeds of God’s love offered to us. But how do we know we’re ready?

Risking Love

This Sunday we continue with the Revised Common Lectionary and a familiar parable of Jesus that invites us to take risks for the sake of faith.

Do as I Say, Not as I Do

This Sunday we return to the Revised Common Lectionary and a text from Matthew that invites us to consider our motives for doing good in the world.

Step Up: Service

This Sunday we continue our Stewardship exploration with a discussion of the importance of our service to those in our faith community and in our general communities.
