Introducing the Summer Sermon Series: Rooted in Creation

  Creation Care? Why are we talking about Creation Care? Well, it wasn’t our idea. We are just trying to tune in to the Bible. Genesis 1:1-2:1 In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, 2the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from... Read More

God With Us (Romans 8:14-39)

  The end of the program year; the Feast of Pentecost. It all comes down to three little words: God with us. Romans 8:14-39 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. 15For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received... Read More

The Walking Dead: Paul’s Theology of Baptism (Romans 6:1-14)

  I don’t care what the meteorologists say –Memorial Day is the real start of summer. And so it seems appropriate that we turn our thoughts to water and to baptism. But for Paul, baptism is not a day at the beach. It is more like that show on AMC that I stopped watching. Welcome... Read More

Not Bad for a Fundraising Letter: Romans 5:1-11

  It is a book of the Bible, an epistle from a church leader to a congregation. It is also a fundraising letter. It may be the most widely-read fundraising letter in human history.   This week we continue in the Book of Romans, skipping ahead to chapter 5.   But in order to get... Read More

Spending Some Time with the Apostle Paul

  Time to spend some time with Paul. Paul? Yes, Paul. This will be better than you think, I promise. Romans 1:1-17 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, 2which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy scriptures, 3the gospel concerning his Son, who... Read More

The Preaching of Paul and a Punk Rock Song: Acts 13 and 14

  This week’s Scripture reading reminds me of a punk rock song. No, seriously. Belfast’s own Stiff Little Fingers has a song called “Nobody’s Hero.” It’s a (loud, angry) reminder that human beings have a habit of trusting too much in mere mortals. But the thing is: you don’t need a punk rock song to... Read More

As we struggle with the aftermath of multiple mass shootings in this country—as we grieve and grapple with the horror—our summer sermon series invites us to consider the story of Cain.
