Speaker: Rev. Kate Davidson

A Shift in Perspective

For a few weeks now, we’ve been following the story of Job and the cosmic bet between God and the Satan that placed Job in the middle. We’ve heard how his life was destroyed and everything he had, his house, possessions, and family are lost and the aftermath of that as Job contends with his grief. This week, Job confronts God and asks for an accounting, and God responds. Listen as Pastor Kate explores how God’s answer has the potential for a change of perspective. 

Accompanying Scripture:
Job 31:35-37, 38:1-11, John 1: 1-5

A Cosmic Wager

This Sunday we began a sermon series on the book of Job, which highlights the story of a man who is completely righteous, loves God, and does everything right but loses everything. What starts as a cosmic bet between God and Satan ends with an exchange between God and Job, giving voice to our frustration with the brokenness of our world. Listen as Pastor Kate explores why God even agrees to this bet and what it means for us today.

Peter Heals in Jerusalem

This week we hear stories of God’s healing powers in Jerusalem and Gennesaret. Sometimes, though, the physical healing isn’t the only miracle that happens. Listen as Pastor Kate explores the ways God is at work today, healing us, making us whole and uniting us as one people in community with each other and God.

Don’t Worry

We’re living in a stressful time during which many folks (maybe you) are looking for some release. Then we read this story from Matthew in which Jesus says, “don’t worry.” Right! Don’t worry… listen as Pastor Kate reminds us that Jesus is right and what that means for us in our current context.

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.

Mark 10:17-31
