Leviticus 19:1-2, 15-18

20th Sunday after Pentecost - Year A

October 26, 2014

The Rev. David Lewicki (PCUSA)

When you heard today's text was from Leviticus, some of you got uneasy. Maybe you got fired up that the preacher was going to tackle one of the gnarliest books in the Bible. Leviticus is not a benign book.

Is there a biblical book with a worse reputation? Even if you've never read Leviticus, you've heard other people who've said they've read it, and because of them you're positive you don't need to read it. You know; it's got that one verse used to judge gay and lesbian Christians. You may also know it contains dozens of very specific prohibitions of very commonplace behaviors.

ON Scripture

Our Dysfunctional Families (Genesis 37: 1-4, 12-28)


By Rev. David Lewicki


Before I knew God, I knew Joseph.

If you grew up in the 80s, like I did, there's a decent chance that your earliest knowledge of Joseph's story came through a local high school or community theater production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. That musical (by Broadway legends Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice) playfully (and rather faithfully) tells the story of a young boy, the favorite son of the patriarch Jacob, who sets in motion both a family and a geo-political drama by flaunting his fashionable coat. As a youngest child, I loved the story-I fancied myself as the favorite son, destined for greatness, who would one day be like Jacob, irresistible to the ladies. There is a time in life when each of us is made up of ego needs and delusions of grandeur.

ON Scripture-The Bible: How Long Does Darkness Last? (John 20:1-18) by Rev. David Lewicki

ON Scripture

There is a pall over this morning. As this story begins in John’s Gospel, “it is still dark.” It is still dark where we wake up today. Beautiful, beloved children of God awake this morning in rooms where no light will break through. Morning brings no solace. It is still dark.

ON Scripture: David Lewicki on Acts 10:44-48: Holy Calamity

ON Scripture

When Peter declared, “God shows no partiality,” he opened the possibility that anyone—everyone—is welcome in the family of faith. He also put us on warning: the rules were changed for you, so that you could come in—who are you, then, to prevent God from blessing the whole human family? Who are you to stand in the way of God’s love?

As It Was in the Beginning

The Rev. David Lewicki (PCUSA)

What we learn from the account of creation in Genesis 1 and the launching of Jesus' ministry in Mark 1 is that beginnings matter--they tell us who we are, whose we are, and where we are going.

Joy Comes in the Evening

The Rev. David Lewicki (PCUSA)

The story of Anna and Simeon greeting the infant Jesus in the temple gives us insights on joy. And whether we are young or aged, we have much to learn from each other about the joy of God.

The Rev. David Lewicki: My Take: Bin Laden Died Long Ago

The Rev. David Lewicki (PCUSA)

One thing we might do well today is give permission to each other to feel all of the things that we might be feeling. There is no one manner by which to respond to this man’s death, because his life impacted all of us, sometimes in radically divergent ways.
