Sermon Audio 3/16/2017 Easter Sunday


Easter Sunday, Lectionary Year A


The Holy Spirit is active in our church and in our world, and it's ok if we admit that we don't always recognize the Spirit's work. But when we do see the Spirit moving among us, we have a chance to be a part of God's work.

Special Audio: Fiery Furnace Story from Daniel at Great Vigil of Easter

For the third year in a row, I got to read the Fiery Furnace story at the Vigil. It's so much fun! Everyone in the assembly gets a part (Satrap? Trigon player?), and together we perform the most fun reading of the year. I hope you enjoy this reading, and I hope it inspires you to attend the Vigil next year!

Daniel 3:1-29

Sermon Audio 4/9/2017 Palm / Passion Sunday


Palm Sunday / Sunday of the Passion, Lectionary Year A


The juxtaposition of Palm Sunday's raucous proclamation of Jesus as king and the Passion's stark abandonment of Jesus to the authorities shows us much about who we are as people and as followers of Jesus.

Sermon Audio 3/26/2017 4th Sunday of Lent A


Fourth Sunday of Lent, Lectionary Year A


The story of Jesus healing the man born blind is long enough to cover just about everything we know about Jesus and how people responded to his ministry. "Who sinned?" is a question we still find ourselves asking today, and Jesus' answer makes all the difference.
