Kelly Hough Rogers: Abundance Born Out of Scarcity

The Rev. Dr. Kelly Hough Rogers (UCC)

Dr. Kelly Hough Rogers says John 6 offers two major miracle. First, the feeding of the 5000, and then the miracle of walking on water, revealing the divinity of Jesus to his disciples and to us, so that they would really know and believe on God’s terms. Both of these miracles can come alive for us when we celebrate communion.

William Flippin Jr.: Counterfeit Clergy

The Rev. William Flippin, Jr. (ELCA)

In his sermon on Jeremiah 23, the Rev. William Flippin Jr. tells us that Jesus’ words regarding sheep and their shepherds are both challenging and comforting. People without a shepherd, without the Lord Jesus Christ, are lost and bewildered, never finding the way to true life. But there is hope.

Kimberleigh Buchanan: The Strength of Weakness

The Rev. Dr. Kimberleigh Buchanan (UCC)

The Apostle Paul boasts to the Corinthians of his weakness, turning boasting on its head, says Dr. Kim Buchanan in her sermon this week. Paul explains that it is in his weakness that the power of Christ becomes real. It is in his weakness that he experiences God’s grace most profoundly.

Kimberleigh Buchanan: Healing Faith

The Rev. Dr. Kimberleigh Buchanan (UCC)

Dr. Kim Buchanan helps us find ourselves in the difficult and potentially hopeless situation the woman suffering from hemorrhages was in when she came to Jesus with a desperate faith. When Jesus became aware that healing power had gone out from him and asked who touched him, maybe his question wasn’t for information but was an invitation to the woman to testify about her healing, and about her own faith which made that healing possible.

Martha Spong: All in the Same Boat

The Rev. Martha Spong (UCC)

In her sermon on Mark 4:35-41, the Rev. Martha Spong reminds us that we weren’t in that boat in that storm, so the disciples' fearful response is understandable. Maybe we need to remember the times we’ve called out for help and wondered if God cared, and to admit that in the middle of such moments, even when help has come, we haven’t always recognized it immediately--or perhaps even appreciated it.

Chris Henry: Faith in a Seed

The Rev. Christopher Henry (PCUSA)

The Rev. Chris Henry says that these two parables about seeds in Mark 4 are perhaps not so much a description of what God does to us, but of what we are called to do for God. He encourages us to think of ourselves not as the soil, but as the sower--maybe we are the ones to whom these precious mustard seeds have been entrusted--we are to be active planters of the kingdom of God.

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.
