Sermons from March 2019
This Sunday’s service explores one of the New Testament’s most enigmatic characters. Mary Magdalene can be found throughout the Gospels and is arguably the most important woman in Jesus’ earthly life – aside from his mother.
This Sunday, we celebrate Palm Sunday (early) and ask ourselves important questions about our Lenten preparations and about what is worth celebrating in our faith.
This Sunday, we continue our Lenten worship series with a familiar text about Jesus being anointed with oil. John’s version of this story brings about thoughts of scarcity, but perhaps that’s the wrong way to think about it. Could there be a reading of this story that instead reminds us of God’s generosity?
This Sunday we enter the season of Lent and our Jesus Christ Superstar series with the opening song, “Heaven on Their Minds.” This song critiques Jesus and the disciples, and while it is from Judas’ perspective, it is also very much from “the outside looking in.” Our scriptures for this Sunday echo a similar perspective.
This Sunday, our Discipleship series concludes with Jesus’ transfiguration on a mountain. It is good to explore this text in the aftermath of #GC2019 so that we may listen more carefully for Jesus’ teaching and live more fully as the body of Christ.
