The Rev. Carol Howard Merritt (PCUSA)

Carol Howard Merritt shows us that Jesus looked at his friends--even the ones who would inevitably betray him--with overwhelming concern and love.

Jessica Christy: "But They Covered Their Ears"

Jessica Christy (ELCA)

Jessica Christy compares the situation with Stephen in Acts, where the angry crowd covered their ears to block out his words before they stoned him to death, to the political scene these days.

Dock Hollingsworth: How Big Is the Church?

The Rev. Dr. Dock Hollingsworth (CBF)

Dr. Dock Hollingsworth says the ways of church life have changed over the centuries since the book of Acts--back then they had no building, constitution, by-laws, or even a pastor; they had the presence of the Holy Spirit and each other.

Sarah Condon: Our Low Meets His High

The Rev. Sarah Condon (TEC)

In her sermon for the 5th Sunday in Lent, the Rev. Liz Goodman focuses on a phrase that appears several times in John's gospel: "Come and See."

Scott Seeke: The Chosen One
