Sermons on Genesis

Good

A Blessing of the Animals is often celebrated close to the Feast Day of St. Francis (October 4th) and we are partaking in this wonderful tradition this morning!  We delight in the knowledge that all of God’s creation is GOOD.  We will be lifting up, in word and song and story, thanksgiving for the many blessings we receive through our pets and all of God’s glorious creation.  

The Power of a Name

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.
Sacred Pillars

Sacred Pillars

All of us have “sacred pillars,” ways that we mark our encounters with the living God. This Sunday, Pastor Lori shares her four pillars.
Where do you think God might be leading you in the face of these feelings of separation?

Don’t Worry

Today’s sermon is the Genesis narrative of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar. How does God meet us in our pan, anxiety, and estrangement?
In The Beginning

In the Beginning

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.

We Believe: God

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?

The Creation Stories

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.

Why Stewardship?

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?”
