Christoph Keller III: Water into Wine

John 2:1-11

2nd Sunday after Epiphany - Year C

January 20, 2019

The Rev. Dr. Christoph Keller, III (TEC)


Inside, in church, today is the Second Sunday after the Epiphany. Outside across America, this is a weekend for honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Inside, we listen to Isaiah: For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her vindication shines out like the dawn. (Isaiah 62:1) Outside, we listen to King, who for his people's sake would not keep silent, and for his country's sake was restless to the end. Inside, we reckon with Israel, the ancient people who struggled with their high call. Outside, it's our turn to do the same.

Sally Haynes: Swimming with Jellyfish

Baptism of the Lord - Year C

January 13, 2019

The Rev. Dr. Sally Haynes (UMC)


I still remember the exhilaration I felt, skittering over the surface of the Pamlico Sound on a small sailboat. The sun was shining, and all was well with the world in that way that seems to happen magically when you're on a boat.

It was the summer after my senior year of high school, and I was working with a Christian outreach ministry with other college students on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It was my day off from my paid work of cleaning bathhouses, so I wandered over to the small sailboat franchise we also helped run. There wasn't a paying customer in sight, so the two guys working it decided it would be okay if we took a boat out onto the water. It might even drum up some business for someone to see our sail out on the waters of the Sound.

Tom Long: The Wrong Town at the Wrong Time

The Rev. Dr. Thomas G. Long (PCUSA)

Dr. Tom Long helps us consider the magi seeking the newborn king in a new way—as those who came to the wrong town at the wrong time. These were likely learned men, and it’s surprising that they went to Jerusalem rather than Bethlehem, since they were supposedly following a guiding star. But, as an impoverished believer in Nicaragua put it “In Herod’s palace there was nothing but corruption and evil, and the Messiah couldn’t be born there. He had to be born among the people, poor, in a stable.”

Ernest Brooks III: Disruptions, Detours, and Discernment

The Rev. Ernest Brooks (other)

The Rev. Ernest Brooks leads us through a fascinating story from Luke 2 about the young Jesus, suggesting that Mary and Joseph’s experience with the idealistically independent and creatively curious Jesus is a window into the disruptions and detours that are part of the process that we have come to know as ‘discernment.’

Thomas Are, Jr. - Christmas at Luke's House

The Rev. Thomas Are, Jr. (PCUSA)

The Rev. Thomas Are, Jr., invites us to spend Christmas at Luke’s house this week, and it’s a simple place off the beaten track far outside of town. There’s a real manger out back, but it’s not a sweet part of the story. This manger makes Luke angry. There is no reason the world should not have made room for this baby.

Scott Black Johnston: Christmas at Matthew's House

The Rev. Dr. Scott Black Johnston (PCUSA)

Dr. Scott Black Johnston takes us to Matthew's house for Christmas, where we learn that family trees can be messy, as can our families themselves. They are imperfect, and this time of year we often do our best to hide those imperfections at least while we’re around our families. But Matthew’s genealogy is filled with scoundrels as well, and poor Joseph isn’t even blood related to Jesus. What does this mean?

Thomas Are, Jr. - Celebrating Christmas with Mark

The Rev. Thomas Are, Jr. (PCUSA)

As he begins a special Day1 series for Advent, the Rev. Tom Are reminds us that Christmas can be hard--it’s supposed to be wonderful, joyful, filled with love, but sometimes it just magnifies our hunger, grief, and fear … and that’s when we need to spend Christmas with Mark, because he knows the son of God will meet us in the broken places.

Michael Curry: The King of Love

The Most Rev. Michael Curry (TEC)

As he explores Christ as King, Episcopal Presiding Bishop Michael Curry says that this way of love that Jesus teaches is unselfish, sacrificial, seeking the good and the welfare of others before my own unenlightened self-interest.

Kelly Hough Rogers: Therefore, Do Not Worry

The Rev. Dr. Kelly Hough Rogers (UCC)

While we look forward to gathering with family or friends at Thanksgiving, many are anxious about this day--how will the turkey turn out, will we get into political arguments, etc. And all that worry can undermine the whole purpose of Thanksgiving. Dr. Kelly Hough Rogers helps us discover what God is saying to worriers.
