This sermon explores the culturally familiar Bible verse of John 3:16–for better or worse how it has shaped the faith journeys of so many people and perhaps what we may not understand about it. If we consider John 3:16 and the whole story around it, we might find ourselves with a different image of God.
On this year’s Pentecost Sunday, we focus less on the story of Pentecost and more on defining what the Holy Spirit is and does in the church and in our hearts today. This is often something that gets lost in mainline churches like Presbyterians. Yet when we miss out on the Spirit, we miss out on fullness of life.
This Sunday we consider all the ways that maybe Mother’s Day is hard on women we love—namely because we all feel pressure to be perfect and have ideal families. But what if God’s grace calls us to something deeper?
This sermon explores the connections between mental health (and its stigma) and our call as people of God who wills wholeness in mind, body and spirit. What does scripture have to say about the hard realities of mental illness? What can Christians do to help?
This sermon is in honor of Earth Day, exploring the call to all Christians to care for God’s creation as a part of our faithfulness. Earth Day has become associated with political division and particular agendas, and yet it is simply asking us to take care of our common home.
