Sermon Audio 12/3/2017, First Sunday of Advent B


First Sunday of Advent, Lectionary Year B


The readings for the first Sunday of Advent always seem to be about the end of the world, when in fact they are about a new beginning in the usual manner of how God moves the church and the world forward. As our congregation faces financial pressures for 2018, we watch for God to do a new thing in our congregation, and we ask whether we are ready to follow God's lead into new uncertainty.

Sermon Audio 11/12/2017, 23rd Sunday after Pentecost A


23rd Sunday after Pentecost, Lectionary Year A


"But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream." These powerful words from Amos cut through all the madness of our news cycles. If our worship and faith practices do not direct us toward the needs of our neighbors, then who are we really worshiping?
