Understanding the Pain

Bev Hollberg. This sermon is based on Psalm 66:11. In Psalm 66:7-18, Jubilate Deo, the line that stands out to me is “you let enemies ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us out into a place of refreshment.” I’ve always struggled to find the meaning in pain. Life seems full of it; from skinning your knee to losing a loved one. Even as a small child I … [Read more...]

Cover Your Ears

The Rev. John D. Lane. This sermon is based on Acts 7:57. But they covered their ears, and with a loud shout all rushed together against him. There’s a lot of ear-covering going on these days.

(1) When I was in seminary, the chaplain there was a man named Rowland Cox, youngest … [Read more...]

The Paradox of Passion

The Rev. Becky McDaniel. This sermon is based on The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ According to Matthew. Today we confront the human reality of betrayal. We look straight into the face of the pain of God.

Returning to Dust

This sermon is based on Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21.  Whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
