Are You Ready?

Today, the Prophet Daniel provides hope to a discouraged population.  The promises found in our reading are just as comforting in the present as they were to the suffering Jews in Babylonian exile.  Join us as we dig into this “fourth beast” of Daniel’s vision to find God’s plan for His creation. May the Lord…

To Bear Another’s Burden

Today we once again celebrate Sanctity of Life Sunday. This is a Sunday where we look beyond our hysterical culture wars to what God himself says about human life – its beginning, its meaning, and its end. This morning we will explore the challenges of life when it is not easy to live, and where…

“Mornin’ Ralph; Mornin’ Sam”

In 1953, cartoonist Chuck Jones first aired his animated classic ‘Ralph Wolf and Sam Sheepdog’. With each episode, Ralph and Sam clock-in and clock-out as if working at a plant. Ralph is always scheming to trick Sam with different disguises in order to steal a sheep. But at the end of each episode, Sam is…

Realizing God’s Promise

Flowing from this vision it also records a remarkably challenging and incisive question from God, ‘Can these bones live?’ Today we will explore why God asks this unusual question, and what it means for…

Two Roads Diverged in a Wood….

It’s a blessing that we also meet two additional ‘travelers’ in today’s readings, both of whom chose the road less traveled by, and that has made all the…

Come Holy Spirit

It was the call that no one wants to receive.  Suffice it to say I realized in receiving it, my life may never be the same again, as a blanket of hopelessness washed over me.  Ezekiel knew that Hopelessness as he looked over the vast sea of dry dead bones. Mary knew that hopelessness as…

Boomerang God

For the last three weeks, I’ve been writing and re-writing teachings and sermons on planes, trains and automobiles in some of the remotest parts of India.  As I look back on mission 2019 to that amazing, wild and colorful nation I’m left realizing again that God is a boomerang God! His will always prevails even…
