Amos Disasa: The Water Will Hold You

Mark 4:35-41

5th Sunday after Pentecost - Year B

September 10, 2017

The Rev. Amos Disasa (PCUSA)

 

When the water is still, it is easy to have faith in the captain of your life vessel. When the sound of the sea returns dead calm and the winds are blowing somewhere else, you may even excuse the captain of your vessel to take a nap. Nothing is happening here - the skies are clear - the sailing will be smooth for this journey - so go to sleep captain - we got this - you need your rest. But faith is a delicate thing. It has a tendency to escape and go into hiding right when we need it the most.

Monty Knight: The Sacred Sound of Silence

1 Kings 19:9-12

10th Sunday after Pentecost - Year A

August 13, 2017

The Rev. Dr. Monty Knight (CC(DC))

 

In the 19th Chapter of I Kings, the ancient Hebrew prophet, Elijah, is having a proverbial "nervous breakdown." He's depressed. So depressed, in fact, he wants to die. "It is enough," Elijah wails, "O Lord, now take away my life." (v.4) Perhaps you've heard this plaintive lament sung by the baritone soloist in the oratorio by Felix Mendelsohn, a marvelous musical composition that bears Elijah's name.

Paul Wallace: When God Shows Up

The Rev. Dr. Paul Wallace (CBF)

The Rev. Dr. Paul Wallace describes Job on the ash heap having lost everything, crying out for justice, for God to make all things right, for God to please explain how and why this happened. But mostly he cries for God to just show up. Because God hasn’t shown up--yet.

Bishop Larry Goodpaster: Unleashing the Power of Prayer

The Rev. Dr. Larry Goodpaster (UMC)

Bishop Larry Goodpaster offers three thoughts to take from Jesus' parable in Luke 18 to help us unleash the power of prayer for living faithfully: First, prayer is believing that God will act. Second, we must be persistent in our praying. And third, we must trust that the power of love and compassion, of God’s justice and mercy, will ultimately prevail.

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.
