Speaker: Rev. Kate Davidson

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

Love Songs

Not all love songs end well. Even for God. Pastor Kate explores how God’s love song early in Isaiah didn’t end well in spite of God’s best preparation and how that relates to our lives as flawed, broken people. Thankfully, God’s story and our story doesn’t end there. Listen to see what God does.

Accompanying Scripture:
Isaiah 5: 1-7; 11: 1-5, Mark 12: 1-3

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

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

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

“I See Dead People”

“I see dead people.” Pastor Kate discusses the most famous line of the movie, The Sixth Sense, and those that come as she thinks about the story of Jesus feeding thousands of people. Listen to find out how knowing and trusting in a reality beyond our own both makes us more alive and changes our perspective on everything.
