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

Wise people tell Pastor Kate not to believe everything she reads on the internet. Something she has extended to April Fools Day – a healthy skepticism that perhaps shouldn’t be further extended to Easter Sunday. Pastor Kate explores what it means to believe the impossible in the face of an empty tomb.

 

 

Accompanying Scripture:
Psalm 118:21-29

Choice

If given the choice, we’ll all choose to save ourselves at some point or another. Just like every human in the final hours of Jesus’ life. Pilate, the Chief Priests, and the crowd – they all choose to save themselves. All of them, except Jesus. Pastor Kate explores what that looks like from the perspective of an almost 17-year-old and what that means for us now.

 

Accompanying Scripture:
Psalm 146
John 19:1-16a
