Impossibly Possible

In this week’s scripture, Jesus tells a rich man what he needs to do to inherit eternal life. He tells the man to sell all his possessions, give the money to the poor and he will have treasure in heaven, and then follow Jesus. Listen as Pastor Kate explores if we also need to heed Jesus’s advice to sell all our things and then what happens when we choose to follow Jesus.

Accompanying Scripture:
Mark 10:17-31

Vantage Point

Jesus begins his teaching ministry by telling stories – stories that may seem clear initially but could mean any number of things. Pastor Kate explores what that means as we hear Jesus’s parables from our own perspective or vantage point, especially as Jesus’s own words in between the parables seem to muddy the water even more.

Accompanying Scripture:
Mark 4:1-34

Interconnected

If you’re not feeling the joy of the Christmas season or your emotions are complex, then perhaps this sermon is something you need to hear. Pastor Kate reflects on the mixed emotions that accompanied the Israelites’ return from exile almost 1500 years ago as well as that hope and grief are often interconnected. 

Accompanying Scripture:
Ezra 1:1-4; 3:1-4, 10-13, Luke 2:25-32

Isaiah of the Exile

In this second week of Advent, Intern Pastor Miriam explores our human fragility. Like grass, a mere puff of wind or a tiny bump on the path of life can knock us over. Like the baby whose birth we are awaiting, we are fragile. But God and God’s promise of love are firm and unshakable. We hear the Word of God that stands strong forever, ready to comfort us always.

Isaiah 40:1-11
