It's Touching Time

Luke 24:36-48

3rd Sunday of Easter - Year B

April 19, 2015

The Rev. Dr. Stephen Montgomery (PCUSA)

 

A number of years ago I knew a young woman who was looking for a church in which to get married. She nearly drove her fiancée and her mother crazy, scouting out just about every sanctuary in the city, looking for just the right one...the one with the prettiest stained glass windows, the one with just the right length of the center aisle, the one most accessible to the interstates and hotels, and so forth.

Carl McColman: What Good is Religion? A Contemplative Perspective

Carl McColman (other)

You can’t legislate or argue or wish religion away. Like it or not, here it is, and it seems to be as much a part of the human condition as dating rituals or devotion to mother. So here’s the real question facing us: how can religion be understood, and used, in such a way that maximizes its good and minimizes its bad?

Debra Darvick: ‘Stay on the Trail': Words of courage from Chicken Point

Debra Darvick

This morning we hiked the Little Horse Trail, which leads to the Chicken Point overlook. Over the centuries, the wind has scoured the surface of the formations into undulating waves of red rock. Posted by the crest of the trail was this sign that read 'Healing in Progress. Please stay on trail. Thank you.'

Carl McColman: Rocking Justice & Spirituality: Like the Two Movements of the Breath

Carl McColman (other)

When I met the Anglican writer Kenneth Leech, who is one of my heroes, he told me a funny but sad story. I mentioned to him that one of my favorite books of his was The Eye of the Storm: Spiritual Resources for the Pursuit of Justice. I loved it (and still do) because it is an eloquent statement of why Christian spirituality necessarily includes a commitment to making the world a more peaceful and just place. He explained to me how he was inspired to write the book.

David Lose: Social Capital and Courage in a Brave New World

The Rev. Dr. David Lose (ELCA)

I’ve suggested on countless occasions in multiple venues that we live in a liminal time, a transition time, a time when major paradigms are shifting and change is the only constant. Which means that business as usual just won’t cut it.

ON Scripture: More Than the Eye Can See (Acts 3:12-19) By Stephanie Buckhanon Crowder

ON Scripture: The Bible

In this week’s lectionary passage, a man crippled from birth wanted 'change.' Actually, he wanted coins or any alms that Peter and John could offer (Acts 3:1-11). To this man, the two disciples were in better shape than he was. From his view, he could surely benefit from whatever they had to offer. Yet, Peter exposes their impecunious state: 'Look on us. We don’t have a nickel to our names.'
