Revelation 7:9-17

21st Sunday after Pentecost - Year A

November 02, 2014

The Rev. William Flippin, Jr. (ELCA)

You've heard of Six Degrees of Separation. If you haven't, this is a theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of "a friend of a friend" can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. We see this phenomenon take place through social media outlets such as Facebook; which shows us when a friend is requested the mutuality of friendship.

David Lose: Congregational Decline: A Terrifying Thought, An Emboldening Thought

The Rev. Dr. David Lose (ELCA)

What’s nerve-wracking is that it can feel, at times, like we don’t know how to respond faithfully to the challenges of this age. (Because at times we don’t!) But when we admit that, we can stop faking it or fretting about it and get to work, confident of the power of the Spirit to continue revealing to us all truth.

ON Scripture: All Saints’ Day: Facing Death (Matthew 5:1-12) by Greg Carey

ON Scripture: The Bible

We have Ebola on the brain. Amid so much anxiety, we turn to All Saints’ Day in the church’s calendar. All Saints’ Day usually recalls our communion with of our spiritual ancestors throughout the centuries, celebrating our unity with saints as far away as North Africa in the fourth century and as close as our deceased relatives. But All Saints’ Day also reminds us of our bond with all believers in the here and now.

Chuck Queen: Cutting Through the Snow on the LGBT Question

The Rev. Dr. Chuck Queen (CBF)

Let’s assume for the sake of argument that the handful of texts which condemn some deviant form of same-sex behavior (like pederasty, master-slave sex, temple prostitution, or sexual excess) actually condemn ALL same-sex behavior. Would these texts then negate Jesus’ call to love our neighbor as ourselves?

Kenneth Samuel: Somebody's Watching You

The Rev. Dr. Kenneth L. Samuel (UCC)

I've heard it said that integrity is who we are when no one is watching. While I certainly concur with this statement, I also recognize that in a world of ubiquitous cameras, microphones and internet access, there is hardly a time or place when no one is watching.

Talitha Arnold: Not Until You Bless Me

The Rev. Talitha Arnold (UCC)

If there was one thing Jacob was good at, it was grabbing and hanging on. At birth, he'd grabbed his brother's heel so he could be the firstborn. Then he'd grabbed Esau's birthright and blessing. To get Rachel as his wife, he'd hung in with his uncle for 14 years. And one night, when the tables are turned and he gets grabbed and pulled into a wrestling match with an angel, Jacob again hangs on until he gets what he wants--a blessing.
