Mark Ramsey: Tomorrow

Hebrews 11:32--12:2

10th Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

August 18, 2019

The Rev. Mark Ramsey (PCUSA)


Don't live in a smaller world than God has given to you. Forces in our life strive to shrink our world and our hopes. We are enticed by distraction that shrinks our focus on deeper values. We are lured into conventional thinking that withers our imagination for living in God's world.

Mark Ramsey: Today

Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16

9th Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

August 11, 2019

The Rev. Mark Ramsey (PCUSA)


Warren Buffet tells the story about a man who was on an important business trip in Europe when his sister called to tell him that their dad had died. Her brother couldn't get back but said to spare nothing on the funeral, whose cost he would cover. When he returned, his sister told him that the service had been beautiful and presented him bills totaling $8,000. He paid up, but a month later received a bill from the mortuary for $10. He paid that, too - and still another $10 charge the month following. When a third $10 invoice was sent to him the next month, the perplexed man called his sister to ask what was going on. "Oh," she replied, "I forgot to tell you. We buried Dad in a rented suit."[i]

Jason Micheli: No Salvation Outside the Church

The Rev. Jason Micheli (UMC)

The Rev. Jason Micheli says the key to having love as a noun in your life is making love a verb; where you invest in loving actions, loving feelings will follow. If that’s how love works for a spouse or in a relationship, then why do we suppose it’s any different when it comes to our love for God?

Jason Micheli: God Is the Bigger Elvis

The Rev. Jason Micheli (UMC)

In his sermon on Colossians 2, the Rev. Jason Micheli asks us: if you’re already forgiven, if Jesus has forgiven every sin you’ve done or will do, why would you bother following him? Paul makes the case in Colossians that this is indeed the case—that it happened once, for all, unconditionally. So why bother with this whole Christianity thing?

Henry Brinton: Christian Flow

The Rev. Henry Brinton (PCUSA)

In the novel "City of Peace," as pastor Harley enjoys the hospitality of Sofia and Youssef, Coptic Christians, Harley begins to sense what psychologists describe as “flow,” when a person becomes energized, focused, and fully involved in an activity. As the Rev. Henry Brinton puts it in his sermon, Harley was experiencing “Christian Flow.”

Michael Mills: Finding Spiritual Balance

The Rev. Michael Mills (TEC)

The Rev. Michael Mills tells us that St. Paul addresses the Colossians' confusion about old rituals and pagan ways, saying that they are not inherently bad or good, that they have no power in themselves, but they can lead to a divided mind and heart—and that can be dangerous.

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?

Joshua Scott: Intentional Faithfulness

The Rev. Joshua Scott (CBF)

Using the story of Elijah and Elisha, the Rev. Joshua Scott gives us three steps toward building intentional faithfulness in our lives as followers of Jesus.

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.
