Paul Wallace: When God Shows Up

Job 19:23-27a

25th Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

November 06, 2016

The Rev. Dr. Paul Wallace (CBF)

 

I didn't need a crow to tell me Dad was going to die.

He had been in the sunroom in his hospice bed for two days, and he would be gone within an hour. The family had gathered and we were prepared. We knew Dad was dying. Still, the poetry of the moment was not lost on me.

Bishop Larry Goodpaster: Unleashing the Power of Prayer

Luke 18:1-8

22nd Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

October 16, 2016

The Rev. Dr. Larry Goodpaster (UMC)

 

I have personally struggled with this particular parable about an unjust judge. Every third year as this lectionary text rolls around I immediately feel inspired to look for another. It is, on the surface, a rather bothersome and strange story that challenges us to search not only for a possible meaning and application, but also for any sense of the presence of God. We much prefer cleaner and simpler parables from Jesus, stories that easily fit into our ways of thinking and acting.

David Powers: Reshaped by Hope

The Rev. David Powers (PCUSA)

The Rev. David Powers says Jeremiah was called to prophesy to God’s people because they were off track--they had forgotten whose they were and had tragically broken their covenant with God. The image Jeremiah offers is that of a potter. The good news is that when a potter is at work, there is always hope, always opportunity, always the possibility of being remade in the image of the creator.

The Good Choice

The Rev. Christopher Girata (TEC)

In his sermon for the first Sunday in Lent, the Rev. Chris Girata says Jesus' temptation in the wilderness is about our human relationship with God, that we are not alone in the world and not alone to face troubles, fears, and temptations of the world on our own. Jesus provides a model for strength in the face of temptation and trouble.

Parked Beliefs

The Rev. Dr. Casey Baggott (UCC)

Dr. Casey Baggott guides us through the story of Thomas in the upper room, who stands at the transition point between the disciples who did get to see, touch, and hear Jesus directly, and the millions who come after who don’t have that opportunity. Jesus doesn’t rebuke Thomas for wanting proof--in fact he encourages him to touch and see.

Walking on Water

The Rev. Canon Michael Rusk (TEC)

The Rev. Canon Michael Rusk says that on a storm-tossed night on the sea of Galilee, Jesus reveals himself uniquely as the one endowed with the power of the creator God, the one to whom he has prayed all night. As he called Peter out of the boat, this Jesus calls us to step out of our comfort zones to offer the presence of God in the world.

Buying the Ticket

The Rev. Anthony Robinson (UCC)

God Will Provide

The Rev. Canon Charles K. Robertson (TEC)

The story of Abraham and Isaac in Genesis 22 reminds us that God will provide--but it's not easy. A strong relationship with God requires a trust that struggles with reality.
