The Journey Begins

Paul’s trip to Damascus starts him on an epic journey that will take him to many places and many dangers, including imprisonment and shipwrecks. He does it all out of his love for Jesus. Listen as Pastor Susanne explores the challenging (and perhaps annoying) story of Paul and the question of our own blindness. Who do we not see?

Accompanying Scripture:
Acts 9:1-19a, Matthew 6:24

Jesus Raises Lazarus

After Jesus brings Lazarus back to life, the leaders of the community decide Jesus has become too dangerous. They begin to look for an opportunity to kill him. Lazarus’s resurrection is the turning point in the gospel of John and Jesus begins his ineluctable journey to Jerusalem, his trial and his death. It is appropriate that this is the story on our first Sunday in Lent as we begin our journey through Lent, share the grief of Martha and Mary and see the promise Jesus brings of new life.

Accompanying Scripture:
Psalm 104:27-30, John 11:1-44

The Man Born Blind

This week we read the story about Jesus healing the blind man and how the community responded to his healing. The community was not happy about how he was healed and questioned him along the way. How do we continue to question and silence the people on the margins today? How does God use these voices to show God’s love and mercy? Listen as Intern Pastor Jennie considers God’s call for those on the margins of our community and society. 

Accompanying Scripture:
Psalm 27:1-4, John 9:1-41

Listen as guest Pastor Craig Endicott explores who Jesus is to us and how we are called to follow.

Bread of Life

This week, we hear a conversation with Jesus and his disciples where Jesus tells them he is the bread of life and how they may find nourishment in God. Where do we find nourishment and feel fulfilled, especially when we feel depleted? God wants to be with us and connect with us spiritually so that we may continue to care for one another. Listen as guest pastor Rev. Craig Endicott explores how we may be fulfilled and follow God when we feel depleted.
