Counter-Cultural Resistance

05 Jul, 2023

In the wake of the violence and riots in Kenosha that followed the death of George Floyd in August of 2020, the Sacred Journeys' board spent much time discussing a way to respond, what could be said, and who the response would be released to...

The Power of Resisting Together

26 Jun, 2023

(Second sermon in a series on the Spirituality of Resistance) Two people are better than one, For they get a better return for their work. For if one flags, the other gives support; But woe to the solitary person who falls And has no one to...

Resisting Personal Bias

19 Jun, 2023

This week we're beginning a sermon series on the Spirituality of Resistance. That may sound odd to some of you, but if you consider Jesus for a moment, he was a resistor. He resisted exclusion, injustice, empire, violence, prejudice, religious...

Longing for Wholeness

12 Jun, 2023

Yesterday's message on the woman at the well in John 4 was the last in a series on the Nameless in the Gospels. I preached this sermon "in character" as the woman to help us to think more deeply about who she was, what her struggles might be...

The First Communion

05 Jun, 2023

We’ve heard the story of Jesus feeding the multitude many times which isn’t surprising since the miraculous meal clearly occupied a central place in the oral tradition about Jesus. It is the only miracle story found in all four gospels (Matthew...

Standing Tall

30 May, 2023

Who is the bent-over woman in Luke 13? Just another nameless character in the gospels who point to the extraordinary abilities of Jesus? I don't think so. I think it is time she received due recognition as an archetype of strength and...

Facing Forward

22 May, 2023

So, we continue our series on The Nameless in the Gospels with a story that involves three nameless travelers in Luke 9. In this story, we have three interactions between Jesus and some travelers. The first traveler says “I’ll follow you...

Jesus vs. Mama Bear

15 May, 2023

In our continuing journey with the nameless characters in the gospels, we find ourselves with a very special mother on Mother’s Day. Known only as the Canaanite woman, she stands as a symbol and example for mothers and parents everywhere, even...

To See or Not to See

08 May, 2023

Taken at face value, the story in John 9 is simply about Jesus healing a blind person, who, by the way, wasn’t born blind because of anything they or their parents did. Clearly, that must’ve been a “thing” back then. To tackle this story at a...

Generosity of Heart

01 May, 2023

(Sermon Series: The Nameless in the Gospels 2/6) I wonder what your first gut reaction is to the story of the widow's mite (Mark 12:41-44), where the poor widow has just given her last two coins to the temple. Personally, I'm a little appalled...
