Everett Worthington: Just Forgiving

2 Samuel 4:4; 9:1,4b,6-7,11b

April 23, 2017

Dr. Everett Worthington, Jr.

 

Would you join me in a prayer?

Dear Lord, in life, all of us are dropped and damaged by others. Sometimes, we simply disappoint ourselves and others, make bad decisions, and are not the people that we hope we could be. We would be lost if you were not a loving, merciful, and forgiving God. You forgive and you help us forgive. We cannot do it alone. Be with us as we think about your Word, that we will not just hear it, but that it will change us. Amen.

Liz Goodman: Full Circle

The Rev. Elizabeth Goodman (UCC)

In her sermon for the 5th Sunday in Lent, the Rev. Liz Goodman focuses on a phrase that appears several times in John's gospel: "Come and See."

Scott Seeke: The Chosen One

The Rev. Scott Seeke (ELCA)

Matt Rawle: Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey Transfiguration

The Rev. Matt Rawle (UMC)

The Rev. Matt Rawle says that the Transfiguration may be about knowing what goodness really is: that goodness is the marriage between the mount of Transfiguration and the hill of Calvary--the tension of glory and suffering that is our faith.

Russ Levenson: How Do You Love Thee?

The Rev. Dr. Russell Levenson, Jr. (TEC)

Dr. Russ Levenson helps us understand what love is, and is not, and how it is lived out. And it’s not complicated: first, we’re called to love God--our lives dedicated to hearing and doing God’s will for us. Second, we’re called to love our neighbors--and not just those in our inner circles. And third, we’re called to love ourselves--often the hardest to do.
