Fear

Fear can be a powerful motivator. Just ask Colin Sullivan. A character in Martin Scorsese’s, The Departed, Sullivan lives in fear of being found out as a mole and it causes him to do some things he may not otherwise do.

Pastor Kate explores the theme of fear as found in the beginning of the Exodus story, before Moses is even born. The fear of the new king of Egypt as well as the fear the Israelite Midwives had. She in turn thinks about our own fears and what God is up to in their midst.

Accompanying Scripture:
Exodus 1:7-20
Luke 4:18-19

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.

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
John 20:1-18
