All Saints Sunday

This past post-season, Pastor Kate felt torn between wanting to believe the Nationals would win it all but also thinking they’d probably lose. This is very similar to the Israelite people who were torn between worshiping both Baal and God. Pastor Kate explores what that looks like for us today.

Accompanying Scripture:
1 Kings 18:17-19; 20-39, Mark 9:2-4

David Anointed King

We are often reminded that God is present and is with us, but we don’t always talk about how God is present. This week IP Miriam reflects on reunification, the work of God through us, and God’s invitation to celebrate the presence of God ever with us.

Accompanying Scripture:
2 Samuel 5:1-5; 6:1-5; Psalm 150; Mark 11:8-10

Ruth

Shrek, the comforts of familiarity, and Ruth: This week Intern Pastor Miriam contemplates how we can sometimes find ourselves getting a little too comfortable, and how the story of Ruth and Naomi challenges us to take risks, care for others, and trust in God’s promise to always go where we go.

Accompanying Scripture:
Ruth 1:1-17

Rules

When we’re kids and sometimes when we are adults, we think of rules as things to limit our fun, our independence, and our freedom. But often rules are meant to protect us and actually provide us with more freedom. Listen as Pastor Kate explores the role of rules, particularly the 10 Commandments, in our lives.

Accompanying Scripture:
Mark 12: 28-31

Jacob Wrestles God

In Genesis, Jacob wrestles with God to a standstill. Wrestling with God can be difficult for us, and we may even feel like it’s not allowed. But God welcomes our questions and calls us into a relationship that is a holy struggle between our own desire for control and our willingness to sit in uncomfortable and uncertain places. Listen as Intern Pastor Miriam contemplates our blessed wrestlings with God, faith, and each other.

Accompanying Scripture:
Genesis 32: 9-13, 22-30

Better Together

There are two separate creation accounts in the beginning of the bible – in the first, God creates humans on the last day at seemingly the same time. In the second, God only creates one human, then notices it is not good for the human to be alone. Listen as Pastor Kate contemplates what that means for our lives together. Accompanying Scripture: Genesis 2:4b-25

Take a Break

Resting, taking a break, not producing – all these things are commanded by God. In fact, it’s one of the 10 Commandments – the need for rest right up there with not murdering. Listen to Pastor Kate reflect on what that means in our lives in this sermon which is the start of our Sabbath sermon series.

Accompanying Scripture: Deuteronomy 5:12-15, Matthew 11:28-30

The Red Ford Tempo

The disciples want to know who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Jesus’s answer probably shocked them. Which reminded Pastor Kate of an experience she had in college and a red, Ford Tempo. Accompanying Scripture: Matthew 18:1-9
