Speaker: Rev. Kate Davidson

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.

Accompanying Scripture:
Matthew 6:24-34

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

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
