On this last Sunday of the church year, we Christians joyfully proclaim Christ Jesus as King. We say he is both our king and king over the whole world.
The Gospel reading for today, 然而, reminds us that Jesus is a very different kind of king than our world is used to. Jesus was [...]
A sermon for Labor Day weekend.
Our second reading today, from the book of Philemon, is a letter from Paul designed to repair the relationship between two men—Philemon and Onesimus. Since their relationship was a work relationship, and because this is Labor Day weekend, I thought it would be good [...]
Did Jesus just call us “evil?” His main message in this text is about prayer, but included in one of his points is the line which says: “If you, 然後, who are evil…” and he seems to be talking to all of us. Yes, Jesus was speaking to his disciples, but [...]
As I was pondering today’s Scripture readings, I recalled these famous words from the book of Ecclesiastes, chapter three: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot; a time to [...]
The Gospel lesson just read, from John chapter 20, is always the appointed reading for this first Sunday after Easter. While there is plenty of material to focus upon in these verses, the part that tends to stand out to us is the part where Thomas refuses to believe until he has [...]
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of a new season – the season of Lent. Lent usually begins in February, and as such the season of Lent usually lines up well – at least at first—with the weather. When the weather is cold, harsh and grim it seems very fitting to talk about sins and their [...]
Today’s Gospel lesson is the story of Jesus preaching his first sermon – or at least his first recorded one. This sermon is very significant in Luke’s telling of the life of Jesus. John, as we heard last Sunday, began his account of Jesus’ ministry by telling of his first miracle. Luke begins with Jesus’ [...]
Did you get any nice gifts for Christmas this year? We know that Christmas isn’t just about the presents. In fact the presents are only a small part. But it’s always nice to get gifts – even if you have to buy them yourself. I’m enjoying my new car battery, for instance!
On Epiphany [...]

This year’s Sunday School Christmas program, presented by our children at the 11:00 service today, is titled “The child we honor.” Jesus is that child, of course. The focus of the program is on the way we honor him through a particular Christmas tradition—the use of decorations known as Chrismons. The word [...]
“Life is a journey”… so we’re often told. I’ve always resonated with that description of life. Maybe you have too. Life is a journey, not only because it keeps moving forward and changing, but it also has a destination – life with God in the world to come.
Our Gospel reading for [...]
