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.

Everyone Loves a Parade

The Rev. Marek Zabriskie (TEC)

In his Palm Sunday sermon, Dr. Marek Zabriskie says Palm Sunday reminds us that God’s love is the only thing that makes sense out of human suffering, conflict, and tragedy.
