The Rev. Dr. Kelly Hough Rogers

Kelly Hough Rogers: Therefore, Do Not Worry

Matthew 6:25-34

26th Sunday after Pentecost - Year B

November 18, 2018

The Rev. Dr. Kelly Hough Rogers (UCC)

 

I am a lectionary preacher. The lectionary is the prescribed readings for each Sunday in a three-year cycle. It is designed to offer readings with lengths that can be heard comfortably. But I would argue that our reading from the Gospel of Matthew chapter 6, ends a verse short. To me, verse 34 is vital to the hearing and understanding of Jesus' whole message saying, "So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today's trouble is enough for today."

Charley Reeb: Why Christianity?

John 1:1-9,14

25th Sunday after Pentecost - Year B

November 11, 2018

The Rev. Dr. Charles Reeb (UMC)

 

Do you know why you are a Christian? If someone were to ask you why you follow Jesus rather than the myriad of religions and philosophies in the world, what would you say? Would your answer be convincing?

I confess there was a time when that question haunted me. I really didn't have a good answer for it. I grew up in the church. Sang Jesus Loves Me. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior at a young age and was baptized. But when I entered my teenage years and began thinking critically, I asked, "If I had been born into a different religion, would I still choose to follow Jesus?"

Charley Reeb: Lose the Cape

The Rev. Dr. Charles Reeb (UMC)

Dr. Charley Reeb says one big reason why more people aren’t Christian is other Christians--those who are judgmental rather than joyful, negative rather than encouraging, and anything but loving. How can we avoid getting wrapped up in our capes that represent some opinion or judgment or political view?

Matt Gaventa: Home Repair 101

The Rev. Matthew Gaventa (PCUSA)

The Rev. Matt Gaventa says the last chapter of the book of Job is not the ending we want, but maybe it's the ending we need. Even in its abruptness, and even though it feels as though it's duct-taped on to the rest of the book, there's something refreshingly honest about these verses, something honest about what it is to have faith.

Joe Evans: Where Were You?

The Rev. Joseph Evans (PCUSA)

The Rev. Joe Evans says God’s response to Job’s questions about the multiple tragedies in his life is truly beautiful but a bit frustrating, and yet it does help us put our lives into proper perspective. In the chaos that we face, the victimization, the sadness, the despair, and the heartache, God says, "Just as I tamed the sea, so I will bring order to your life once more.”

Joe Evans: When Israel Was a Child

The Rev. Joseph Evans (PCUSA)

The Rev. Joe Evans says that Hosea the prophet showed in his life, in his marriage to the prostitute Gomer, how God is related to each of us--and committed to us. Even if we’ve forgotten who we ever were and have walked so far away from the light that we can’t see our way back home, God still remembers us and loves us. That is the hope each one of us can cling to.

Anne Robertson: The Real Question of Job

The Rev. Anne Robertson (UMC)

The Rev. Anne Robertson says the real question of Job is: Why are good people good in the first place? The whole test of the book is Satan trying to prove that integrity and faith will vanish, even from a totally blameless and faithful person, once the reward of a happy and healthy life is removed. Whether or not Satan is right is the fundamental question of Job. So what does that mean for us?

Talitha Arnold: "Longing for Cucumbers"

The Rev. Talitha Arnold (UCC)

The Rev. Talitha Arnold says the Israelites weren't starving. Their cry for melons and leeks and cucumbers was really a longing for home, or at least the taste of home. Two years earlier their life had been turned upside down—for the better to be sure—but still it’s hard to cope with such a radical life change. They thought they wanted to go back, but really they were longing for a place to call home now.

Dock Hollingsworth: The War of the Cravings

The Rev. Dr. Dock Hollingsworth (CBF)

The Rev. Dr. Dock Hollingsworth shows us that first century Christians were just as greedy, lustful, and ambitious as we can be. And the writer of James addresses the common everyday sins that might look harmless enough, but are the true thieves of human happiness and congregational unity.
