Walking Away?

Walking Away? Luke 24:13-35 I just love this story from Luke. It speaks so clearly to the human condition, to our condition, it “hits the nail on the head”… because these two travelers, these two disciples on the road to Emmaus… are us. They are you and me. I mean think about it: these two men had missed the significance of the greatest event in human history, because they couldn’t see beyond their grief and despair. All they could see was their own disappointment and discouragement. They couldn’t recognize Jesus walking right beside them... because all they could focus on was their hopelessness. And you and I can relate to that, can’t we? We’ve all been there and done that - some of us

Nonsense? (Easter 2019)

Nonsense? Luke 24:1-11 There are a hosts of reasons as to why we come to church... especially on Easter Sunday... Some of you are here because you’re always here! You’re in church as often as you possibly can be. Of course, some are probably here today because you’re visiting with family and friends. And that’s great! Easter is a perfect time to spend with family and friends… It’s wonderful to experience worship with those you care for and love the most. Some of you are probably here for the music… Every Easter Sunday there are certain hymns that just make more sense… Like “Christ the Lord is Risen Today!“ and “Up From the Grave He Arose!” It also seems like we sing a little more enthusias

Giving a Donkey

I’m sure someone here is going to find Lydia or Peter, or even Luke.  Of course, I don’t want you to worry… I’ll catch up with you soon enough. But first, right after I see Jesus, I want to meet the guy with the donkey and the colt. I cannot tell you his name, and I can’t describe what he looks like. In fact, there’s only one thing that I know about him at all… and that’s what he gave. He gave his donkey and her colt to Jes

In a Hurry to Worry?

In a Hurry to Worry? Philippians 4:6-7 Matthew 6:25-34 I’ve always heard there are two days that you and I should never, ever worry about: yesterday and tomorrow. Our Gospel lesson specifically tells us, “Don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” What color are those words? RED! Jesus’ words! We know we can’t live in the past... what’s done is done... what’s been has been! We can’t live in the future - we don’t know what tomorrow holds. We can only live today. Of course, that doesn’t stop us from trying to live in the past or in the future, does it? We’re often in a hurry to worry, aren’t we? I often say, “God gi
