Intention: Maintaining Balance

20 Mar, 2023

In Mark 6:45-52, the author tells a wonderful story about Jesus walking across the water and subsequently calming the wind. Now, we know that people can’t walk on water, and certainly not in the midst of a strong wind and raging waves. Hence,...

Intention: Seeking Authenticity

13 Mar, 2023

What does it mean to be authentic? That was a rabbit’s hole if I ever went down one! Who knew? The topic seemed like a good one when I chose it a month or more ago. Intentionally Living Authentically is the original title I gave this sermon,...

Intention: Courage & Mistakes

06 Mar, 2023

Have you ever heart of kintsugi ? Kintsugi means "to join with gold" and is an art form that goes back hundreds of years to the Muromachi period (approximately 1336 to 1573). The story is that the third ruling Shogun (or leader) of that era,...

Intention: For Your Life

06 Feb, 2023

Better Together

23 Jan, 2023

The book of Acts documents some of the early development of the Jesus movement. In Acts 9:31 we hear that the small house churches the apostle Paul (still called Saul at the time) established throughout the region were at peace, building...

New Year, New Wine

09 Jan, 2023

So, my partner and I don’t really fall into the category of big New Year’s Eve celebrators. We didn’t stay up until midnight, we didn’t even watch the ball drop in New York. It’s been years since we’ve celebrated with friends. But this doesn’t...

Keeping Joseph in Christmas

19 Dec, 2022

John Shea talks about not turning a story into an idol. He says, "It is merely a gate they open so we may go inside.” So, let’s go inside the nativity story in Matthew to consider Joseph for a few minutes. Joseph was a fine, upstanding Jewish...

Keeping Merry in Christmas

12 Dec, 2022

Erma Bombeck once wrote an article entitled “The Lost Christmas.” It began like this: “There is nothing sadder in this world than to awake Christmas morning and not be a child…” Do you remember experiencing the wonder and magic of Christmas...
