Sermon Matthew 2:1-12 “Three Men and a Baby” January 4, 2015

It could be said, and should be admitted, I’ve preached on this scripture text every year since I first took on the role of pastor in a church. Counting back, we’re talking five churches and some 27 Epiphany Sunday services. On a few of those occasions, the service actually fell on the traditional 12th day […]

Sermon Matthew 2:13-23 “Fleeing to Egypt” December 28, 2014

this morning’s reading from the gospel of Matthew, Joseph is warned of Herod’s wrath in a dream and flees, with his young family, to Egypt. Now, there is no doubt that Egypt has played a significant part throughout Biblical history. It was in Egypt that the Israelites were enslaved and from Egypt that God called […]

Sermon Isaiah 40:1-11 “Peace Amidst the Stress” December 7, 2014

Growing up in the fifties was exciting. Christmas may have been a frenzied time of shopping for gifts and putting on family dinners for my Mom, Dad and Grandparents but as kids, my brother and I had only one job to do. Be good so Santa would come and give us our gifts. We achieved […]

Sermon Luke 21:5-19 “Glimpses of Hope” November 30, 2014

  The season of Advent seems to always begin in darkness. Our days grow shorter with seemingly less and less light from our sun. Our weather forecasters grimly report two less minutes of daylight each day as the winter solstice approaches. And our worship services include equally grim scripture passages, like this one; yes there […]

Sermon Matthew 6:25-33 “Putting Our Worries Away” November 23,2014

At this time of year, we are acutely aware of the need to be grateful, though what we’re grateful about may be as different as we are from one another. We may be grateful for family, for friends, for health, for our homes. We may be grateful for food on the table and people with […]

Sermon Matthew 25:14-30 November 16, 2014 “The God We Face is the One We Imagine”

I have to admit when I read what the scripture from Matthew’s gospel was this week, I cringed. Wasn’t it just last Sunday we focused on stewardship and giving? Traditionally, this parable, the parable of the talents is almost exclusively used to bolster giving in a church and to define the use of our gifts, […]

Sermon 2 Corinthians 8:1-15 “Make a Joyful Noise” Stewardship2014 November 9, 2014

Our November newsletter has a perfect quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy, which really speaks to our stewardship theme today. “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live them.” I suspect Kennedy would have been a fan of St. Francis of Assisi whose […]

Sermon I John 3:1-3 “A Time to Remember” All SaintsA November 2, 2014

Back in 2005, my cousin Chris and I were touring Italy hitting all the major cities, which, up to this point, had been merely places on a map and scenes from our grandparents’ stories about their homeland. We loved Italy, the grandeur of the churches, the stone paved roads, the olive groves and vineyards. It […]

Sermon Matthew 21:33-46 October 5, 2014 “The In Crowd”

Throughout the year, we have been exploring the gospel of Matthew. Matthew often used Christ’s words to address his audiences – the Jews of the day. At times, we’ve heard very strong words of condemnation and criticism in Matthew, those words often directed at the religious elite – primarily the scribes and the Pharisees. Occasionally, […]

Sermon Matthew 21:23-32 “The Blame Game” September 28, 2014

I’m an avid fan of the show Seinfeld. The inside joke, of course shared with all of us, is that Seinfeld is a show about nothing. Actually, it’s a show about everything! I always seem to find a Seinfeld illustration in almost every human situation. The one I want to share with you today I […]
