Sermons on Old Testament
Join us for our Labor of Love Celebration with special guest Pastor Bob Rhodes!
Today we begin at the beginning…with Adam and Eve, focusing on the second creation story (yes, there are two of them!). This story looks less at the creation of the cosmos and more at God’s intention for human community.
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.
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.
We join together to explore the meaning of the last supper, and to celebrate Holy Communion. Online participants are invited to prepare bread and grape juice (or wine as appropriate for your home).
Today, Jesse Hodge, will be reflecting on the calling of the young prophet, Jeremiah, encouraging all of us to consider our own calling in this precious life.
This is the perfect season to be intentional about new beginnings! Imagine what LOVE looks like in this new year.
Our Bishop, Grant Hagiya, preaches today on “Light in the Darkness,” sharing his thoughts, hopes and encouragement with all of us as we enter into 2022!
This Sunday is the beginning of a brand new Christian year! It is the First Sunday of Advent and we begin the preparations of our hearts and spirits for the coming of Christ at Christmas. We’ll light the first Advent candle, the candle of Hope, as we begin our journey toward Bethlehem.
Most would be confused or upset at the thought that “sorrow is better than laughter” like it states in Ecclesiastes 7:3. When we pretend that everything is okay, we are not handling our deep hurts and griefs—the only way to do that is to feel them and to open ourselves to healing. Putting on a happy face is not always right for our soul.
