Patrick Keen: Taking Baptism Seriously

The Rev. Dr. Patrick Keen (ELCA)

In his sermon for Baptism of the Lord Sunday, Pastor Patrick Keen says it seems some Christians today don’t take baptism seriously. But obedience in baptism helps us respond to God’s call to work for God’s kingdom in our world through social justice and serving those in need.

The Rev. Ernest Brooks (other)

Pointing to the African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child,” the Rev. Ernest Brooks characterizes Simeon and Anna at the Temple as two elders of Jesus’ village--wise ones, prophets, sages--who spoke over and into Jesus’ life, affirming the life altering and world changing anointing that was his mission.

Susan Sparks: Sun Mo Manger

The Rev. Susan Sparks (ABCUSA)

In her sermon for Christmas Eve, Susan Sparks recounts a personal story of being turned away from a motel, and reminds us that we will all be rejected in this life, turned away, left out in the cold, but that’s not the end of the story. Like Jesus, we are all called to become the innkeeper, the builders of the kingdom, the protector of our brothers and sisters.

Michael Brown: The Hard Work of Making Life Right

The Rev. Dr. Michael Brown (other)

In his sermon for the 2nd Sunday of Advent, Dr. Michael Brown says Isaiah speaks to the Israelites who had returned home after 70 years in Babylonian captivity, and it was worse than they expected. It was a mess. It takes hard work to make things right again, in order to make home feel like home.

Michael Brown: God at Our Doorsteps

The Rev. Dr. Michael Brown (other)

Dr. Michael Brown says the Bible never promises that God will wave a magic wand and make all the bad things in life go away. Instead the Bible promises that there will be highways in the desert places of our lives where God will come to be with us, to comfort us, and eventually even to deliver us. And God almost always does that incarnationally--through a human being.

Bob Baggott: Apocalypse, Not Now

The Rev. Dr. Robert Baggott (UCC)

In Advent, Dr. Bob Baggott says, Jesus advises that we stay awake, watching and waiting for how God is working and how God will come next to us. We are called simply to go on with our lives, living confidently, as capably and productively as we can, setting our minds and hearts on helping God further the work of creation and doing Christ’s work in the world.

Shane Page: The Final Exam

The Rev. Shane Page (UMC)

The Rev. Shane Page calls Christ the King Sunday the most political Sunday of the Christian calendar, because we declare Jesus is Lord over all political and world powers. And it’s clear that King Jesus’ interests are in blessing those who served the hungry, the thirsty, the naked, the imprisoned, all those in need and poverty.

Casey Baggott: Making It Matter

The Rev. Dr. Casey Baggott (UCC)

Dr. Casey Baggott says that if we’ve been given the treasure of faith, we will invest it, not hiding the best of what we have, not being prudent or cautious, not seeking our safety and security above all else. Instead, we will take risks for the sake of spreading and multiplying the good news of God’s love.

Tripp Martin: A Pin Drop

The Rev. Dr. Tripp Martin (CBF)

In his sermon on Psalm 78, Tripp Martin says that part of the work of the church is to teach us to listen in a world that only wants to speak. We learn to listen not only to speak, but so we can speak truthfully, kindly, and compassionately, for God continues to speak through us, for us, and to us in various ways.

Paul Tellstrom: Bring Her, Bring Him

The Rev. Dr. Paul Tellstrom (UCC)

Dr. Paul Tellstrom says that All Saints’ Day allows us a very personal way to talk about the present and the future by talking about the past. Who are we? Who do we want to be? Saints from our past give us a way of talking about where we are and where we are headed.
