“The Shepherd”

On March 26, Pastor Jim preaches on Psalm 23. Picture a person waking up in a seedy motel, stoned and hung over. Sharing the room with a stranger he or she met the night before, broken-hearted and miserable, waking up filled with regret and sorrow and shame, like the prodigal who woke up one morning with his […]

“The Secret’s in the Mud”

On March 26, Pastor Katy preaches on John 9:1-12. Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found; was blind, but now I see. The metaphor of blindness as a spiritual blindness is thick throughout Christian imagery and Scripture, but like all metaphors it’s imperfect. […]

“The Great Un-shaming”

On March 19, Pastor Katy preaches on John 4:13-19; 27-30. Have you ever had a secret? Something that would crush you if others knew; something you’ve kept even from your spouse or closest friend? The Samaritan woman Jesus encounters one day at a well had a secret that her whole town already knew. A secret […]

“Born from Where?”

On March 12, Pastor Jim preaches on John 3:1-7. This passage is one of the most familiar in the New Testament. Privileged, powerful, and pious, Nicodemus comes to Jesus filled with certainty, saying, “Rabbi we know that you are a teacher who has come from God…” It’s as if Jesus reached out and pulled a string on […]

“Spiritual Spy Games”

On March 12, Pastor Katy preaches on John 3:1-8. Sneaking around under the cover of darkness. A Pharisee by day and a Jesus follower by night. Nicodemus feared everyone knowing the truth about the questions he asked in secret and the faith he harbored in his heart. If we’re honest, many of us live by […]

“The Conversation”

On March 5, Pastor Jim preaches on Genesis 2:15-17, 3:1-4. Why did God put the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the garden if he didn’t want them to eat from it?  Mark Twain once said that God shouldn’t have told them not to eat the fruit. God should have told them not to […]

“The Big Four-0”

On March 5, Pastor Katy preaches on Matthew 4:1-11. Forty days and forty nights. Forty years wandering in the wilderness. Forty is a number we see over and over again throughout the Scriptures, and it’s a number that emerges again this first Sunday in the forty-day Lenten season. We often believe that when we are going through […]

“Fire on the Mountain”

On February 26, Pastor Jim preaches on Exodus 24:15-17. In the book, “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” the children cross over into Narnia and eventually meet a married couple of beavers. The beavers tell them about the great lion, Aslan, who rules Narnia. The children are excited about the lion and ask, “Is he […]

“Is Jesus a Shapeshifter!?”

On February 26, Pastor Katy preaches on Exodus 24:12-18. This week is Transfiguration Sunday, the Sunday before Lent begins. It’s the one day of the year when we linger on a story about Jesus taking some disciples up a mountain where the glory of God suddenly shines around and through Him. As you can imagine, the disciples fumble with […]

“You, God, and Everyone Else”

On February 19, Pastor Jim preaches on Leviticus 19:9-18. “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Who said that? Obviously, Jesus said it, but where did it originate? Our Scripture tells us that it came from the Hebrew Bible, specifically Leviticus 19:18. I sometimes wonder what it’s like for our Jewish friends when they hear us attribute to Jesus things […]
