Parts 3 and 4 of the Born Again sermon series as squashed together for the sermon this week. Read about broken hearts and paying attention.
A departure from the sermon series to address the recent shootings in the United States. The parable of the Good Samaritan and a little help from Dr. King make this sermon what it is.
In part 2 of the Born Again series, we head out into the neighborhood as apostles sent out like the seventy in Luke 10. Jesus invites us to see, name, and participate in God’s reconciling presence.
In the first part of a four-part series, we look at the divinely unreasonable new life that Jesus calls us into. And we introduce the sermon series.
A transcript of the sermon I preached without a text on June 19th. In the rampant us/them dichotomy, it is up to us to say NO to people who force others to become “them’s.”
Our isolating societal sickness stems from the fact that we wear blinders on eyes. We no longer know our neighbors. We are stuck in a pattern of self-enforced loneliness. The cure is willful seeing, as Jesus points out in today’s Gospel.
The world sells us one version of worthiness. Jesus invites us to imagine another: one in which people have value, but not price.
