Skin and Bones

  • The Rev. Katherine Bush

  • 10:10

Your skin and your bones are so wonderful, and they are good even on the days when you and I wonder about that, and they are carrying us around this big, tumultuous world. And yet, you and I are also so much more than skin and bones. I wonder about those moments when the realization grabs us, as surely as Elizabeth grabbed Mary. When we are touched and touched; when we feel someone squeezing our hand or something opening our heart that and know there’s more – more to us, more to our lives, more to this world than we had previously dared to imagine.

Moonstruck Prophet

  • The Rev. Scott Walters

Maybe the God of Advent is a God who loves us too deeply to be anything but angry and hurt when we build our lives on nothing. A God who grieves when we turn from the offer of God’s selfless love and build false selves for the sake of a world that says, “Sure I’ll love you if it’s in my interest to do so. Knock yourself out proving you’re worth my attention.” Maybe Malachi rages like a jilted lover because God won’t let us settle for lives built on such fickle, conditional loves instead of on the one great Love that will never let us go.

Help is on the Way

Advent, and life for that matter, are not only about Jesus coming to us. They are also about us coming to him. Are we willing to draw near to him in faith? Are we willing to acknowledge and to accept help beyond what we can do for ourselves?

Trusting Scripture

  • The Rev. Scott Walters
  • 11/14/2021
  • 12:11

In fact, trusting the Bible may be a lot like trusting another person. The person you trust most is not the one you’re willing to bring only your best self and your unquestioning loyalty, but the one you’ll entrust with all of your complicated self. To trust someone deeply is to trust her not just with your hopes and joys, but with your doubts and your fears, your anxieties and vexations. So it is with the Bible.
