Seek and Doubt

June 10, 2017

  Doubting often gets a bad rap in the church.  I think that's a real shame--because as you'll hear, some pretty important people doubted at a pretty pivotal time in the life of the Christian faith.  So, I say, go ahead and doubt.....but keep seeking, even as you doubt.

Seek the Shepherd

May 5, 2017

  The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want..... those familiar words to Psalm 23 are part of our focus today.  But notice the pronouns in that, I.  When we visualize walking with Jesus the shepherd, it's often just you and Jesus.  But the gospel calls us to be inclusive, to invite others to know God's love.  Who are you called to invite?

Seek the one on the donkey

April 7, 2017

     Why does Jesus choose to ride a donkey on Palm Sunday?  A horse would certainly be more majestic; a camel would imply being part of wealthy caravan; even an ibex has a hint of the exotic.  But a stubborn, independent, homely creature?  What does Jesus choice say about him and about us?
