Resurrection opens up the power of life to overturn death and its forces, and the choice to center ourselves in that reality. To live lives of resurrection hope that pour compassion and love and justice and forgiveness and healing into all the world’s wounds.저자 Rev. Dr. Aimee Moiso
 
In Resurrection, the Risen Christ blesses us with life, and invites us to go and tell the story with the lives we live. When the Gospel of Mark tells the story of Resurrection – in language spare and startling – “He is risen! He’s gone ahead to meet you. Just like he said. Go and tell the others” – it invites us to write ourselves into the narrativ…
 
In Palm Sunday, the cross, and the empty tomb, Jesus blesses the world by declaring a new reality with his body. This is what Jesus is doing on Palm Sunday, inviting us with his body, gathered with our bodies, to proclaim the Good News he has come to make real.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
As we listen to the lament of Psalm 22, of Jesus from the cross, of the prayers of Celtic spirituality, and of our own world, we find our way to this blessing: God blesses us with tears to shed with each other, the presence of God in the midst of our suffering.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
Rev. Allie Utley leads us in a reflection on the troubling image of the cross and invites us to consider this: In the suffering of the cross, God knows us, intimately, the whole of our human experience, including our sorrow and pain.저자 Rev. Allie Utley
 
The Word becomes flesh as Jesus calls us into community – and we call each other – “Together We Serve.” The Word becomes flesh not at the centers of power – but in the vibrant pulse of life at the margins – in everyday folk and our everyday lives – in this Jesus of Nazareth, in this community of mutuality.…
 
Grace is God’s unconditional love for the whole world. Grace insists that we say true things about systems of oppression and our complicity in those systems, and then calls us to change. Grace then allows those who have participated in the harm to participate in the healing.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
On the first Sunday of a new year, we turn to the beginning of the Gospel of John, affirming that God's Word becomes flesh in the midst of us. Always, as we begin again, Christ manifests God’s Word in us.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
This Sunday, we begin our Advent theme: "Light Dawns on a Weary World." In the dawning of Christ’s new day, Jesus invites us to keep on watching – watching out for ourselves and each other, watching for what God is doing in the world, watching for the work that is ours to do.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
Amid the storm, what we are doing here is building the house of our lives on the sure and steady foundation of God’s love for us in Jesus Christ. Hope is what we do every morning when we rise with the day and say, “We can do this.”저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
In the communion of the saints, our memory of life with God yesterday points us to where and how we might find our way to life today and tomorrow – not just for us, but for our children and our grandchildren, and for all the generations yet to come.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
The Pharisees and Herodians try to trap Jesus with a question about paying taxes to the Emperor. Jesus surprises us with a life-giving both/and when we’re preparing for an artificial yes or no. We follow One who sees the trap coming, unmasks the hypocrisy, and still sends the questioners away with new things to think about. The Resurrected One has …
 
In an election year, we stand at the intersection of faith and public life, and consider the danger of tyranny and systemic racism, the promise of the right to vote, efforts to suppress that right, and our power to make a difference. In God’s sovereignty, God honors our agency to choose, inviting and empowering us to participate in God’s re-making …
 
This sermon looks at the Ten Commandments as (1) an expression of how free people live, (2) a trust document, and (3) a law called love. Then, thinking of the Ten Commandments particularly as a trust document (an expression of accountability), we ask, "How have we done by Breonna Taylor and her family?" How can we better live into freedom, trust, a…
 
Psalm 121 sustains us on the journey with (1) the open possibility of a question, (2) confession of our own reality (the best and the worst of it), and (3) a blessing and a breath. And then, Rev. Yolanda Norton blesses us with this: “Be the muddy river that accumulates all of the things that God has created and shines in the midst of it.”…
 
Freed from Egypt, out in the desert, the Hebrew people grumble because there is no food and they are hungry. God listens, and provides manna in the morning. In the long-haul of a wilderness journey, God provides enough, each day, for the living of these days.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
God breathes with us and calls us to become co-conspirators to set the whole world free. Being a "co-conspirator" requires that we listen with humility to those who have been harmed most, and put something at risk for the life and the well-being and the freedom of others.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
In the practice of Sabbath, God invites us to rest in the presence of our Creator, and experience the gifts of balance, time to refocus, and resistance to anxiety and commodity-driven oppression.저자 Patrick O'Connor, Director of Family Ministries
 
In the story of Joseph and his brothers, we see God's providential love at work: Beyond the reality of our decisions and misdirected intention, God intends for us our ultimate good, and accompanies us along the way there.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
In the much-told story of the miracle of the loaves and fish, when the disciples think there's not enough to feed the crowds, Jesus says: "They don't need to go away. You give them something to eat." In a world that feels scarce, Jesus empowers us to create capacity in community.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
We consider the Parable of the Sower -- the seed, the soil, the sower -- and notice that the parable describes a generative process for a generative season. God empowers us to create something new together by sowing seeds generously and generatively. Grace abounds!저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
On this Fourth of July weekend, we stand at the intersection of faith and public life and consider "freedom" -- both Biblical and Constitutional. What we affirm with the Apostle Paul is this: Christ has set us free for the freedom of others and ourselves.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
Exiled into the wilderness, Hagar raises her voice in lament against the powers of slavery and patriarchy. In the power of lament, we summon God into the pain of the world, and God summons us and the world to create something better and new.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
 
As Sarah laughs at the news that she will have a child so late in life, we listen with her to the question: "Is anything too wonderful for God?" We consider the events of this week -- Supreme Court decisions and Juneteenth celebrations -- and we wonder, with Sarah, at things that seem too wonderful even after long seasons of hope.…
 
At Pentecost, the Spirit comes among the people, gathered together, empowering them to see the world plainly, to listen, to speak, to do, and to create with God the new world that is breaking forth, even now. This year, we listen to the Pentecost story in a world that is in flames from the systemic racism that has persisted in this country for far …
 
In the closing sermon in our series "Life from Behind Closed Doors," we consider the breadth of ways that folks are living behind close doors during the COVID-a9 pandemic -- not only those who are sheltering, but also those who are incarcerated. During this Easter season we have found that, in Resurrection, God gives us life beyond every separation…
 
This sermon considers possibilities for hunger action in this time of pandemic and sheltering, through the lens of our Easter theme: "Life from Behind Closed Doors." This week, we take up an Old Testament text in which Elisha and a widow seek miraculous provision in a time of scarcity, and what we find is this: In the face of dire need, God provide…
 
As we continue in our worship theme -- "Life from Behind Closed Doors" -- guest preacher Allie Utley takes us "behind closed doors" with Noah -- as Noah and family wait in the ark to be able to walk again on dry land. The sermon names our waiting in this time of pandemic, our longing for what we miss most, and how worship is part of how we survive …
 
In Acts 2, we see a snapshot of what life in community was like for the early church -- as they gathered in homes, broke bread together, prayed, held everything in common, and sold what they had to give to those in need. Stories like this give us a glimpse of who we have been, who we are, and who we hope to be. In community, the Spirit of the Risen…
 
This sermon considers the resurrection of Tabitha, the clothes she made to care for a community of widows, the quilters of Gee's Bend, and those who are making masks for others in this time of pandemic. In this quilting and this sewing, we see that God gathers us at her quilting table, and invites us into acts of tender mercy.…
 
For centuries the disciple Thomas has been labeled "Doubting Thomas." This sermon makes the case FOR Thomas. Behind closed doors with Thomas and the disciples, what we see in Thomas is someone who -- like us -- is baffled by a bewildering world. He voices his need for Jesus, and the Risen Christ responds. In Resurrection, when we reach the limits o…
 
On Easter morning, we go with Mary to the tomb and encounter the Risen Christ. And what we find there together is yet more life -- yet more life than we ever imagined -- yet more life to live right here, right now, and yet more life to live on into forever.저자 Rev. Scott Clark
