Sermon John 20:19-31 “Say What?” April 12, 2015

Have you ever doubted God? Have you ever wondered where God is in a particular situation? Doubt is a common reality of our human nature. We all experience it though most of us are uncomfortable admitting it. Back in the Seventies, when things seemed simple or I was just too young and too self-involved to […]

Sermon Mark 16:1-8 “Rolling Away the Stone” April 5, 2015

In a short 8 verses, Mark accomplishes what the other three gospel writers fail to do…he is, as we’ve come to expect, brief. This brevity from the gospel of Mark is familiar to us, isn’t it? And, because of Mark’s succinct style of reporting some very important news we’ve come to expect this author to […]

Sermon Mark 11:1-11 “Here Comes the King” March 29, 2015

Until recently, I never understood the fascination the world seems to have with English royalty. A few years ago, as I began working toward my doctorate, I became aware of the strong connection English history has in the evolution of Christianity. My research, at least in part, brought me into close contact with the Anglican […]

Sermon John 12:20-33 “Yes! We Want to See Jesus” March 22, 2015

The story I just read from the Gospel of John this morning is one, which I’ve long wrestled. Quite frankly, I find this reading from John to be difficult to understand because Jesus responds to the information brought to him by his two disciples, Andrew and Philip with what, at first glance, might be perceived […]

Sermon John 2:13-22 “Scattered” March 8, 2015

Growing up Roman Catholic, my somewhat childish impressions of “church”, “sanctuary”, and sacred space still remain, to a degree, intact. The place where God meets God’s creation as in humanity, as in you and me was and still is a holy place, a place to be respected and honored. There were certain unwritten but well […]

Sermon John 3:14-21 “Light, Love, Truth” March 15, 2015

The passage we heard this morning from the Gospel of John is probably one of the most familiar to both religious and non-religious persons alike. The only other passage likely to rival this level of familiarity might be Psalm 23…”The Lord is my shepherd….” We’ve seen the words “For God so loved the world…” in […]

Sermon Mark 8:31-38 “So, What’s it Worth to You?” March 1, 2015

In the world of antiques and collectibles, things don’t have value unless someone wants them. Over the last few weeks, I’ve been making a half-hearted stab at organizing and packing non-essentials for the eventual move from the parsonage to a new home. In nine years, the house has become full of things – some necessary, […]

Sermon Mark 1:21-28 “Wrestling with Demons” February 1, 2015

One of the things you can count on when reading the Gospel of Mark, is that everything moves rapidly. One moment Jesus is being baptized in the river Jordan; the next, he’s being forced into the wilderness to be tempted to give up on God’s plan and make his own. And before you can take […]

Sermon John 1:43-51 “Gathering the Troops” January 18, 2015

There’s an unusual phenomenon, which seems to be universal among all living beings, at least all living things with working intellects. Confronted by something new, unfamiliar and challenging most creatures will initially show fear, respect, or a desire to flee. Often, when something new confronts our lives, we want to take flight, ignore this newness, […]

Sermon Mark 1:4-11 “On the Way to the Wilderness” January 11, 2015

When I was a kid I remember summers as those special times when we journeyed from my house in Glastonbury to my grandparents’ cottage along the shore in Old Saybrook. It wasn’t really as far as I thought it was but then, I was young and sitting any length of time in our car to […]
