Reign of Christ - Year A

November 26, 2017

The Rev. Shane Page (UMC)

 

It was the Sunday after a series of street protests had roiled the city of Charlotte, NC, near where I serve. In my attempt to be as timely as I could be, I addressed the events of the week in my sermon that morning. "Preacher," he said to me after the service. "If I were you, I'd stick to religion. Keep your politics out of the pulpit."

Tripp Martin: A Pin Drop

The Rev. Dr. Tripp Martin (CBF)

In his sermon on Psalm 78, Tripp Martin says that part of the work of the church is to teach us to listen in a world that only wants to speak. We learn to listen not only to speak, but so we can speak truthfully, kindly, and compassionately, for God continues to speak through us, for us, and to us in various ways.

Paul Tellstrom: Bring Her, Bring Him

The Rev. Dr. Paul Tellstrom (UCC)

Dr. Paul Tellstrom says that All Saints’ Day allows us a very personal way to talk about the present and the future by talking about the past. Who are we? Who do we want to be? Saints from our past give us a way of talking about where we are and where we are headed.

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton: Truth and Dare

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton (ELCA)

In her sermon on the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, Bishop Elizabeth Eaton says the Gospel that Luther discovered and that set him free, the truth that forms us into God’s liberated people, is God’s promise that the former things are past. In Christ, the one who is true, we are free.

Eric Shafer: You're Gonna Have to Serve Somebody

The Rev. Eric Shafer (ELCA)

In his sermon on Matthew 22:15-22, the Rev. Eric Shafer says while many of us may have strong political views, before and above any of these we are Christians--followers of Jesus Christ. Jesus is or should be our first loyalty, above all others.

Tim Boggess: Why You Will Join the Wrong Church

The Rev. Dr. Timothy T. Boggess (PCUSA)

Dr. Tim Boggess says that, regarding the conflict at the church in Philippi, Paul wasn’t interested in preserving the peace--he was interested in making it. He wanted the Philippians not to give up on one another, but to double down on Jesus.
The Very Rev. Dr. Michael Battle Transcript

Michael Battle: God's Kind of Apocalypse

The Very Rev. Dr. Michael Battle (TEC)

Jesus is trying to get his disciples to understand this huge paradigm shift that is hard for anyone to really understand. God’s true power is relationality, which is another word for love, says Dr. Michael Battle. Being related to others is the greatest effect of God’s true power. The imago dei is community.
The Rev. Dr. William H. Willimon Transcript

October 01, 2017

Will Willimon: One in Christ

The Rev. Dr. William H. Willimon (UMC)

Regarding the division and disunity that seems to pervade our country these days, Will Willimon says this really isn’t anything new--at least a third of the New Testament deals with division and polarization, and that’s what Paul addresses in his letter to the Philippians. He tells them to act like Jesus, stop acting out of selfishness, and watch out for the good for others.

Malcolm Young: Gospel for the Superfluous

The Very Rev. Dr. Malcolm Clemens Young (TEC)

If you find the tumult of today's politics unsettling, it may actually get worse, says Dean Malcolm Clemens Young. As technological change accelerates and upends all the social arrangements that comfort us, there does not seem to be much hope for us who often harshly judge others without thinking. Yet Jesus still invites us to be his people.
