Seek and Doubt

Seek and Doubt

June 4, 2020

  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

Seek the Shepherd

May 3, 2020

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 phrase...my, 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?

Psalm 23 

Seek the one on the donkey

Seek the one on the donkey

April 4, 2020

    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?

Seek to Obey

Seek to Obey

February 14, 2020

 Seeking to be an authentic Christian can be, indeed most days it is, a challenge.  What does God want me to do with.....or about that........  Here Jesus adds another layer of complexity to God's commandments.  Why?  To drive us to the cross, to remind us that without God's love and forgiveness found there, we can do nothing.

  Gospel reading:  Matthew 5:21-37

Seek to let your light shine

February 12, 2020

 What does Jesus ask us, his disciples, to do?  Here, in this text from Matthew, Jesus announces that we are the light of the world.  With that gift comes a responsibility to let our light shine before others.

Seek to Walk with God

Seek to Walk with God

January 31, 2020

  What does God really want from us human beings?  The prophet Micah phrases it this way, "to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God".  Let's share stories of people we know who have done this...maybe somewhat imperfectly.  And in sharing these stories, we help people to see that walking with God can be done...and by regular people...like you and like me.
