Seeing Blindness Differently

March 26, 2017

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I'm found.
Was blind, but now I see


Which character do you identify with in today’s gospel?

Is it the blind man who was transformed, the Pharisees who couldn’t see beyond the laws?

Is it the parents who were fearful of being thrown out of the synagogue?

Or Are you one of the bystanders who doesn’t recognize the blind man once he could see?

Seeing Lent Differently

March 5, 2017

Here we are in Lent again – and we’re trying something different in our preaching! We’re going press conference style, with questions and answers. If you want to look ahead at the readings and send us questions, we will try and incorporate them into our sermons. I know there’s a question to start us:

Immigrants, aliens, and loving our neighbor as ourselves

February 19, 2017

The message of the Bible is often simple and clear. The challenge comes in interpreting how to concretely live out its simple message in our complex society: Love God, love your neighbor as yourself. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself; Be merciful, just as your God is merciful Forgive others when they hurt you. Wash one another’s feet. Serve others. Love your enemies. Pray for those who persecute you.


Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here.
