Rebecca had a baby girl just as the Nazis invaded Poland. As the soldiers marched into Warsaw, she clutched her baby girl to her chest in desperation. Rebecca was Jewish. Her husband was a professor.

1st Sunday in Lent - Year B

February 18, 2018

The Rev. Gordon Stewart (PCUSA)

In his autobiography Samuel Clemens, the beloved humorist known as Mark Twain, wrote words akin to the Gospel of Mark's briefest description of Jesus' forty days and nights in the wilderness:

With the going down of the sun my faith failed and the clammy fears gathered about my heart. Those were awful nights, nights of despair, nights charged with the bitterness of death. In my age as in my youth, night brings me many a deep remorse.

Cuttino Alexander: The Happiest Place on Earth

The Rev. Cuttino Alexander (ELCA)

In his sermon for Transfiguration Sunday, the Rev. Cuttino Alexander explains that the word “transfiguration” means to elevate something and make it more beautiful, make it shine. And that’s what happened on the mountaintop with Jesus, and Peter, James, and John. But after those moments in life we’re back at the bottom of the mountain, smack dab in real life.

David Hodges: To Move, To Touch, To Heal

The Rev. David Hodges (TEC)

In Mark 1:20-39, Jesus tells his disciples that he is supposed to proclaim the message. But the Rev. David Hodges says that proclaiming the message means not just telling people what the kingdom of God is, but showing them--by reaching out and touching people who, because of their disease, their behavior, or their demons, were suffering.

Charles Qualls: What Is This?

The Rev. Dr. Charles Qualls (CBF)

Dr. Charles Qualls says that the scribes and Pharisees heard Jesus' bold teaching and decided he had to be stopped. But others heard Jesus and opened their hearts and minds, their souls and spirits to the hope they heard in Jesus. “What is this?” they asked.

Charles Qualls: Promise or Warning?

The Rev. Dr. Charles Qualls (CBF)

Mark 1:14-20 contains both a promise and a warning, says Dr. Charles Qualls: A promise that God does not extend to us a calling to participate, as this kingdom is ushered in, without also giving us what we’ll need. But Jesus warns that following him would not always be without its difficulties and its costs.

Henry Brinton: Come and See

The Rev. Henry Brinton (PCUSA)

The Rev. Henry Brinton says we live in a world that is as multicultural as the Galilee of the Gentiles, and our challenge is to create places in which people can come and see Jesus, just as Philip invites Nathanael to come and see. And the best way to do this is to practice Christian hospitality, to welcome people with love and grace, just as Jesus did

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.

Ernest Brooks: It Takes a Village

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.
