Check Your Weapons at the Door

The Rev. Susan Sparks (ABCUSA)

One of the weapons we tend to use often is our tongue, our words, says Susan Sparks. We can't live in the love for others that Jesus commanded if we can't control our tongue--and here are three ways to do that.

Two of the Sweetest Words Ever Spoken

The Rev. Peter Marty (ELCA)

The most fundamental claim of our faith, says Peter Marty, is that God always makes the first move in seeking us out, as God did Saul. And in Ananias' visit at God's commend to see this murderer of early Christians, we see God's grace at work.

Seeing Signs and Feeling Wonder

The Rev. Dr. Becca Stevens (TEC)

Signs remind us that God has not abandoned us, that God is dwelling with us. Epiphany is the season we celebrate signs, says the Rev. Becca Stevens, and the story in John 2 celebrates the wonder of Jesus' first sign, changing water into wine.

Speaking the Truth in Love

The Rev. Richard Goeres (ELCA)

In his sermon this week, Pastor Richard Goeres says that while the fact that we are all sinners is not the good news, it is the truth, and the thing about the gospel is that it always meets us in our truth. It is us, as we actually are and not who we pretend or present ourselves to be, that Jesus comes to save. And Jesus is insistent that we know that.

Go, Church, Go!

The Rev. Andrew Taylor-Troutman (PCUSA)

In his sermon, Andrew Taylor-Troutman says we are terrified our churches will fail. And you know what? Perhaps the church will never be the same again. How much more important, then, to remember that resurrection comes only after death. And that the life-giving Spirit of God cannot be restrained. With such faith, we might discover that—in the word, go—there’s not only fear, but also freedom.

Jesus' PDAs for Us

The Rev. Nancy Christensen (ELCA)

In her sermon, Pastor Nancy Christensen says, "By allowing ourselves to communicate freely as Jesus does, we find that the depth of relationship--so evident between Father and Son--is not beyond our grasp. It is a relationship that only our own boundaries and our own barriers can ever prevent."

Last Words

The Rev. Dr. Timothy Smith (ELCA)

Jesus' last words to his disciples were full of love. Dr. Tim Smith asks, what is it that matters, when all else--including life itself--is said and done? What is the most compelling, most powerful, most enduring force in all of the cosmos? It is love.

Right-Minded or Big-Hearted?

The Rev. Canon Charles K. Robertson (TEC)

The Apostle Paul argues that the Corinthians' views were damaging the faith of young and weak believers. The Rev. Dr. Chuck Robertson says we must decide whether to insist on being right, or to rather be big-hearted in our relationships with others.
