It Doesn’t Matter if Harper Stays or Goes

Bryce Harper, the young superstar right fielder for the Washington Nationals baseball team, is scheduled to be a free agent at the end of this season which has prompted questions of whether he will stay or go. Pastor Kate reflects on that question, baseball as a true team sport, as well as the implication of playing as a team in our faith lives.

Philippians 2:1-13

Magic Eye

Sometimes a thing can be right in front of us and we still can’t see it – much like the 3D image hidden in the patterns of a Magic Eye image. Pastor Kate explores how that was true when the Apostle Paul met the Epicurean and Stoic philosophers in Athens and explains who God is to them. She then points to how that is true in our own lives.

 

Accompanying Scripture:
Acts 17:16-31
John 1:16-185

Christmas Eve 2017

Pastor Yvette’s sermon tells the Christmas story from the perspective of a shepherd.

I am not of this time and place, but it seems to me that it is not so very different from my time… In this time, also, God still needs unlikely messengers like we were to receive and to share good news of great joy. God needs you to carry the light of Christ in the midst of darkness.

Praying for Rain

Pastor Kate remembers growing up in New Mexico and being pelted with sand as the wind carried it across the landscape. She also remembers praying for rain to water the barren land. Much like the Israelites prayed for relief after returning from exile in Babylon. Pastor Kate explores what this means for us as we await the coming of a savior on Christmas.

Accompanying Scripture:
Isaiah 55:1-13
John 4:13-14

Can these bones live?

There are so many things that cause us to forget that we are beloved children of God and make us think that God can’t possibly want us, or that God just is not with us. But God is the one who remembers.

Again and again God’s people forgot. They forgot how to live as God’s people, called to justice and mercy, blessed to be a blessing to all God’s world. They forgot God’s faithful love for them.  But again and again, God sent the prophets to remind them of God’s call and God’s promises.

Accompanying scripture:
Ezekiel 37:1-14
John 11:25-26

Being the Light of Christ

Guest preacher Rev. Rose Mary Sánchez-Guzmán visits Faith to share her experience ministering to the community of Cristo Rey Lutheran Church in El Paso, Texas.

“Jesus already crossed all kinds of borders for you. He came to be the light of the world. How can we not dare cross borders with him to bring his light to others? What we have is not because we deserve it. They are gifts that bring us into relationship with others – and with God, who reaches beyond the boundaries of men.”

Accompanying Scripture:
Isaiah 9:1-7
John 8:12
