Acts 4:5-12

4th Sunday of Easter - Year B

April 26, 2015

The Rev. Dr. Stephen Montgomery (PCUSA)

Some time ago there was an article in TIME magazine which described how over 100,000 former Christians have downloaded "certificates of de-baptism" in a bid to publicly renounce the faith. The website, sponsored by the National Secular Society of London, invited visitors to "liberate yourself from the Original Mumbo-Jumbo that liberated you from the Original Sin you never had," and allows them to print out a paper certificate that uses quasi-formal language to "reject baptism's creeds and other such superstitions."

ON Scripture: Legislating Love in the 21st Century (Acts 8:26-40) By Karyn L. Wiseman

ON Scripture: The Bible

One of the hot button topics in America today is same sex marriage. This issue has been in the news often due to same sex marriage bans being struck down in state after state and on the minds of many after the controversial 'religious freedom' law passed in Indiana (and similar ones already enacted in other states). And it has been in the hearts of many gay and lesbian couples faced with the possibility of being denied access to services because of who they are and who they love.

Jacqueline Lewis: Into God's Hands

The Rev. Dr. Jacqueline Lewis (other)

Sometimes it feels like death is all there is: the slowly dying intent of the more well-to-do, who feel stuck in between their personal ethics and values and those of their companies and co-workers. The dying promises of a democracy, in which government should and must care for the most vulnerable, whose promises are on life support.

Frederick Schmidt: Rare Prayer: Cries of Lament

The Rev. Dr. Frederick Schmidt (TEC)

Rebekah Eklund’s book explores the role of lament in the Old Testament, where it is common. But she goes on to note that – in spite of assertions to the contrary – prayers of lament can be found in the New Testament as well and, in particular, in the life and teaching of Jesus. Hence the title of her new book: Jesus Wept: The Significance of Jesus’ Laments in the New Testament.
