If we believe, at the bottom of it all, that we are loved unconditionally by God, we can live like we have nothing to lose. We can pray and sing and question and argue like we have nothing to prove.

  • 10:40

Perhaps the gospel writer is alluding in the double mention of 12 years that healing does not fully happen in an instant. Healing emerges as multiple layers are unpeeled over time. It happens within and through ongoing relationships.

The Fifth Sunday of Pentecost

  • The Rev. Scott Walters
  • 06/23/2024
  • 13:10

What if the expansion of our compassion is so important to God that God would rather take the blame for our enemy’s anger than let our anger get the final say in who we believe our enemy to be?

The Fourth Sunday of Pentecost

  • The Rev. Katherine Bush
  • 06/16/2024
  • 10:11

Whether or not you’re a gardener or a farmer, the simple, radical suggestion of this story is that the kingdom is not wholly reliant upon your efforts. In fact, it’s okay if you want to take a nap. I wonder, though, if we can receive this as good news?

The Third Sunday of Pentecost

  • The Rev. Paul McLain
  • 06/09/2024
  • 8:38

Paul sees the mission of Jesus as renewing the unseen foundation of humankind. Christ’s mission teaches us that the pathway to the eternal is not through temporary outward fame or success, but through an inner core of gratitude, humility and service. His mission is to draw us into the ultimate peace that comes from serving a being and a community greater than ourselves.
