Scott Seeke: The Chosen One

The Rev. Scott Seeke (ELCA)

As we see in the story of Samuel's anointing of David as King of Israel, God's criteria for God's servants may not line up with our own--which, Scott Seeke tells us, means God may even use us.

Stephen Cook: On Beyond

The Rev. Dr. Stephen Cook (CBF)

In his sermon for the 2nd Sunday in Lent, Dr. Stephen Cook says God is forever calling us--as God did Abraham and Sarah--to keep going on beyond, beyond the truth we think we know, the places we never dreamed of being, the opportunities to minister we never considered.

Stephen Cook: Wilderness Time

The Rev. Dr. Stephen Cook (CBF)

In his sermon for the first Sunday in Lent, Dr. Stephen Cook suggests that Jesus had to die first before we could have the resurrection celebration. And if we’re going to be serious about following Jesus, then we had best be ready to go some places we might not otherwise choose on our own.

Matt Rawle: Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey Transfiguration

The Rev. Matt Rawle (UMC)

The Rev. Matt Rawle says that the Transfiguration may be about knowing what goodness really is: that goodness is the marriage between the mount of Transfiguration and the hill of Calvary--the tension of glory and suffering that is our faith.

Russ Levenson: How Do You Love Thee?

The Rev. Dr. Russell Levenson, Jr. (TEC)

Dr. Russ Levenson helps us understand what love is, and is not, and how it is lived out. And it’s not complicated: first, we’re called to love God--our lives dedicated to hearing and doing God’s will for us. Second, we’re called to love our neighbors--and not just those in our inner circles. And third, we’re called to love ourselves--often the hardest to do.

Russ Levenson: Living Happily Ever After

The Rev. Dr. Russell Levenson, Jr. (TEC)

The Rev. Russ Levenson explains that in Deuteronomy, Moses tries to beat a bit of truth into stubborn heads, essentially saying 'you are not going to find your way to happiness by ignoring the one who created the concept—happiness and life are only found in following him.' For Jesus, to be righteous means being in a right relationship with God, and that kind of relationship bears the fruit of right actions, not the other way around.

Scott Hoezee: All Righteousness, All the Time

The Rev. Scott Hoezee (other)

In his sermon, the Rev. Scott Hoezee says we get so used to defining righteousness and the 'Christian way of doing things' to whatever it is we have grown accustomed to that we are no longer open to the surprises God has in store for us. And the heart of God’s law has all along been love.

Camille Cook Murray: A Message for My Brothers

The Rev. Dr. Camille Cook Murray (PCUSA)

Dr. Camille Cook Murray notes that the rich man in Jesus' parable caught 'affluenza,' a sickness caused by having too much. It can cause blindness, lack of sensitivity, and numbness in the heart. We see a number of cases of this disease in our own culture--and even those of us who aren’t all that wealthy may still turn a blind eye to someone in need.
