Sermons on Genesis
Our scripture reading from Genesis this week focuses on Abraham and Sarah, who started their journey as Abram and Sarai. But in their relationship with God and as a part of the covenant between them and God, they received new names. We’ll spend some time today thinking about what that meant for them and what our names and labels mean for us, as people of faith, today.
What does the Bible say about creation and systemic racism? Hear the powerful message by Rev. Anthony Boger speak on association without assimilation.
All of us have “sacred pillars,” ways that we mark our encounters with the living God. This Sunday, Pastor Lori shares her four pillars.
Today’s sermon is the Genesis narrative of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar. How does God meet us in our pan, anxiety, and estrangement?
This Sunday, we launch into a new sermon series. Our current reality of social isolation in the midst of a pandemic is not the only example of widescale stress and anxiety on the human species. Psychologists and historians continue to point out that one expression of humanity seems constant across such periods of stress—creativity.
This week we begin a new series on The Apostles’ Creed, one of the earliest statements of the Christian faith. We will explore the opening phrase: “I believe in God the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth.” Is it possible that everything we know about the God of the universe is still incomplete?
This second Sunday in our series on reading the Bible, we explore the creation stories in Genesis and consider important questions about how we understand these early narratives about the beginnings of the world.
The month of October is traditionally the season where we focus on Stewardship. We begin with an important exploration about why stewardship is important as a kick-off to an exploration of Clayton Christensen’s book, “How Will You Measure Your Life?”
This Sunday we continue our series on Les Misérables with a look at dreams and facing those times when our dreams seem unreachable.
This Sunday, we conclude our sermon series that journeys through the book of Genesis as guided by our Revised Common Lectionary, exploring the idea of legacy. What kind of legacy have Abraham and Sarah left to Isaac? How will he carry it on? What does it teach us about our own faith? Our own legacies?
