Living Now!

Living Now! James 4:13-17 Am I the only one, or does this scripture from James kinda “hit you between the eyes” with reality? Life is just a mist... or a vapor... here for a moment, then it’s gone! “You don’t even know what will happen tomorrow.” They don’t call it “mortal life” for nothing! Mortality... my mortality... your mortality... our mortality... is a fact of life of which you and I must come to terms. Mortality is a fact for us all. “Good grief, Jerry! Why talk about death and mortality on a Sunday morning!? Let’s talk about something happy... something that makes us feel good and that’s relevant!” Well... there’s nothing more relevant than life’s most common denominator! The fa

God's Affirmation

“God’s Affirmation” 2 Corinthians 1:18-22 Who knows what a “PK” is? Here’s a hint: It’s a acronym for something! A “PK” is a Preacher’s Kid! Well, I read a little story about a “PK”... that I’d like to share with you. The little boy’s dad was preaching one Sunday... at the end of the service the preacher offered a prayer, as was his traditional way of ending the worship service. The little boy knew that this prayer was the only thing standing between him and freedom... between him, lunch and playtime! But the PK’s father was kinda wound-up... and his prayer just went on-and-on! And the boy was getting more and more impatient with every passing minute... until he could stand it no longe

Breaking the Bread of Life

Breaking the Bread of Life Luke 24:36b-48 If you have children... or grandchildren... nieces or nephews (maybe even kids who live next door... or kids who just run around in the neighborhood!), then you’ve heard the question: “Do you have anything to eat?” Of course, it doesn’t necessarily have to be kids... Food is a central part of everything we do... not only here at church... but in life in general. Life tends to revolve around food. We gather with family and friends around tables, covered with food, during holidays and other special times (like birthdays and graduations). We have lunch dates with co-workers and business partners, colleagues... We make dinner reservations at fancy

Good Doubt?

Good Doubt? ~ 2nd Sunday of Easter, 2018 John 20:19-31 Christ is Risen... Christ is Risen, Indeed! On this Second Sunday of Easter, we continue to celebrate the Resurrection... as we should! It’s a huge part of who we are, and what we do, as a community of faith! Of course, last Sunday we visited the tomb... along with Mary Magdalene, Peter and John... only to find the stone had been rolled away... and Jesus gone. We listened in as Mary encountered the Risen Christ... thinking he was the gardener... but when Jesus spoke to Mary, and she heard his voice... she recognized Christ... running to the disciples with the Good News, “I have seen the Lord!” It was the very first recorded proclamati

The Greatest News Ever Shared!

The Greatest News Ever Shared! John 20:1-18 Easter Sunday’s without doubt, one of my favorite days of the year (and Easter is my favorite holiday by far!). It’s a day to celebrate... a day to hold fast to - and proclaim - with confidence - the greatest story ever told... and to affirm the assurance of our Faith: “Christ is risen... Christ is risen, indeed.” So we gather today... doing what most of us have always done... we’ve put on our best clothes... we’ve gathered in God’s House... we’re singing old standards of the faith... and many (if not most) of us will gather with family and friends around dinner tables... But the people we encounter in our Gospel lesson, at the tomb, knew nothing
