Henry Brinton: Christian Flow

Luke 10:38-42

6th Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

July 21, 2019

The Rev. Henry Brinton (PCUSA)

 

On a warm July day, a Methodist pastor sat down for dinner in the apartment of two Coptic Christians. The pastor's name was Harley, and his hosts were Youssef and Sofia. They were a husband and wife who operated a jewelry store in the town of Occoquan, Virginia. As they sat down, Youssef offered a prayer. "Be with us, Lord Jesus, as you were with your first followers in the breaking of the bread. Bless this food to our use and ourselves to your service. Amen."

Michael Mills: Finding Spiritual Balance

Colossians 1:1-10

5th Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

July 14, 2019

The Rev. Michael Mills (TEC)

 

One of the joys of my ministry is that I am in a church that has a parish school on the same campus. Which means that I get to participate in the school's outdoor education program. Basically, I get to go camping a few weeks a year with middle school students. My favorite trip of the year is one that takes us to the deserts of southwest Texas. It is beautiful country but it is a challenging trip, not just for me, but for the seventh-grade students who are going to carry a backpack into the desert for three days and two nights. They carry their own camping supplies, and they have to partner with the adults in carrying their share of food, and the water, and the shelter for the whole group. It is, quite literally, a heavy load for a young person to carry.

Rob Wright: Up Ahead

The Rt. Rev. Robert Wright (TEC)

Bishop Rob Wright says "harvest" is about connecting with people, sharing purpose with people, gathering people. It’s how God’s people can embody the phrase “For God so loved the world.” But the laborers are few, Jesus says. So what does it take to be a true harvest laborer?

Lori Raible: I Beg You, Do Not Torment Me

The Rev. Lori Raible (PCUSA)

In her sermon on Jesus's healing of the demoniac, the Rev. Lori Raible says we all have demons, which is probably why Jesus made the trip to a spiritual unclean, Roman occupied, Gentile town full of swine herders in the first place. Jesus had a point to make: no one is so unclean that we are out of God’s reach.

Camille Cook Murray: I'll Tell You When You're Older

The Rev. Dr. Camille Cook Murray (PCUSA)

In the Upper Room, the Rev. Camille Cook Murray says, Jesus had a lot yet to teach his disciples, but they just couldn’t bear it. Same is true for us—if we knew about all the wars, disasters, recessions, illnesses and tragedies ahead, we couldn’t bear it. So Jesus is not giving his disciples all the answers; rather he’s trying to teach them about faith.

Hardy Kim: Connect to Real Life, Connect to Jesus

The Rev. Hardy Kim (PCUSA)

The Rev. Hardy Kim calls us to be "seized by the Spirit," and adds that a church can be “seized by the Spirit” as well – it’s a church that has courage not just to pray and witness to Christ, but work with others for justice, freedom, and peace.

Hardy Kim: Food and "Them and Us"

The Rev. Hardy Kim (PCUSA)

The Rev. Hardy Kim tells us that Peter’s dream was transformative for him, forcing him to overcome barriers not only of his diet, but perceived barriers with others who were not Jewish. And his dream compels us to consider how we can cross similar boundaries that exist between ourselves and others.
