Ozzie Smith Jr.: When Jesus Comes Home

The Rev. Dr. Ozzie E. Smith, Jr. (UCC)

In his sermon on Mark 3:20-35, Dr. Ozzie Smith Jr. says "We hear Jesus make a bold claim about faith that may hurt our ears and sounding anti-family. However, Jesus recognizes the power of connection when there is faith in the family. Obedience to God matters.

Ellen Richardson: The Man with the Withered Hand

The Rev. Dr. Ellen Richardson (TEC)

In her sermon, Dr. Ellen Richardson says Jesus broke the rules to heal people, to restore them to a fullness of life denied by their afflictions, you told us. His healing was a way of entering into the suffering of others, a response not of pity, but of empathy. This is how the man with the withered hand was healed--and he came out of the shadows and into the light.

David Hull: Benediction

The Rev. Dr. David Hull (CBF)

In his sermon, Dr. David Hull says an authentic encounter with God challenges us to look at the needs of the world. “Here am I; send me!” was Isaiah’s cry in response to God’s invitation. So worship is always transformed into mission; Worship is not a wall to hide behind, but a door to walk through to a world in need.

In her sermon on Psalm 98, the Rev. Kimberly S. Jackson says the psalmist encourages us all to remember the sunshiny days, the victories in life in the past, and to sing with gratitude to God about them. No matter what is going on around us in the world or in our lives we can praise God.

David Gushee: Justice Denied--Except from the God of Love

The Rev. Dr. David Gushee (CBF)

Dr. David Gushee says the texts for the 5th Sunday of Easter reveal a God who calls us to love and serve those for whom justice has been denied. We start with the Ethiopian Eunuch of Acts 8, who while reading Scriptures came across the suffering servant in Isaiah 53 and must have seen some parallels with his own life as one excluded and even humiliated. But there he reads of a God who, in and through that humiliation and injustice, redeems.

Jason Micheli: A Sheep Without Verbs

The Rev. Jason Micheli (UMC)

The Rev. Jason Micheli says that to profess that the Lord is your shepherd is to confess that you are a sheep--which really means you are lame, stubborn, stupid. Sheep don’t do any work by which they merit their worth; they’re only good for their wool and their meat. The only real work, if you can call it work, a sheep performs is listening to the shepherd’s voice.

Jason Micheli: Emmaus at the Bass Pro Shop

The Rev. Jason Micheli (UMC)

On the Emmaus Road Jesus encountered two followers, and only when he broke the bread in their home did they recognize him. But that was only possible because they refused to let this strange man on the road remain a stranger—they welcomed him, accepted him, and shared with him.
