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." This time, Mary and Martha invite Jesus to "come and see" where their brother Lazarus was buried. We too can offer this invitation to others in our circles to come and see God at work.
In his sermon for the Sunday of the Passion (Palm Sunday), Dr. Delmer Chilton compares the theology of glory with the theology of the cross, and explains how Jesus models how we are to live to serve humbly.
In his sermon for Easter Day, Dean Sam Candler says Easter is a day to remember an amazing thing about Jesus’ tomb: It’s not the end of the path, not the end of freedom, not the end of light-- it’s a tunnel.
In this special message presented in association with the Episcopal Preaching Foundation, noted scholar on the science of forgivness, Dr. Ev Worthington, uses the story of Mephibosheth to explain the power of forgiveness in life, and how we all can come to be more forgiven and forgiving followers of Christ.
The Rev. Sarah Condon says that, like these disciples on the road to Emmaus, we all want to avoid the suffering and death part of Jesus' story. Among other reasons, by admitting that part of the story we also have to admit that we need God’s forgiveness and grace--our low meets his high.
Dr. Dock Hollingsworth says the ways of church life have changed over the centuries since the book of Acts--back then they had no building, constitution, by-laws, or even a pastor; they had the presence of the Holy Spirit and each other. Churches today can rediscover their connection with the early church, and find how truly big the church is.
