Sermons by Jeri Newell-Davis
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 continue our series on creativity. Rev. Jeri Newell-Davis asks what our lives of faith would be like if we entered into a creative process to discover new ways in which to express our faith and our love for God in Jesus Christ.
On Easter Sunday people all over the world celebrated in ways previously unimagined. There was a rise in telecasting while church pews remain empty. Only Jesus could bring forth life, life in abundance, from what some people say is a time of complete devastation.
For our Maundy Thursday setting, imagine four clergy sitting around a table trying to dialogue thoughtfully on the realities of social distancing, a sacred meal, and service to one another. Now imagine you get to observe the conversation…
Rev. Jeri Newell-Davis from St. Mark’s UMC will bring Sunday’s message and she shares the following: Many of you may be feeling a bit anxious about staying indoors during this pandemic, and I don’t blame you. This is not what we are accustomed to. We are creatures of habit, people who like our freedom. But I know the pandemic will end and we will have the freedom to go about our routines once again. And we will give thanks when this season has ended.
