  • This week we hear from Jesus's parables in Mark as we celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King. In parables, Jesus retold every day events to evoke a change of mind and heart, for the sake of God's kingdom, what King called the beloved community. What contemporary events might become today's parables - ordinary tales for the sake of change in God's direction?

  • The Scripture text for this sermon tells the story of a group of friends so desperate to see Jesus, they get on his roof, dig a hole through it and lower their friend suffering from paralysis into the room with Jesus. I marvel at the hope and faith those five friends possessed to have taken such a bold action. What paralysis experienced among us would motivate us to act so boldly, would compel us to think so creatively, would make us so anxious for change that together we would seek out healing so aggressively?

  • As the new year brings new beginnings, the beginning of Mark's gospel offers an entirely different beginning to the story of Jesus, one that skips over his birth to emphasize the beginning of his ministry. In the light of Epiphany, or the visit of the Magi to the infant Jesus, what might Mark's different beginning have to do with our own new beginnings?

  • This Sunday brings two pieces of poetry from Luke's gospel - the Magnificat in Mary's voice and the Benedictus (blessing) in the voice of Zechariah, father of John the Baptist. Both invite us to see the event of Jesus's birth in light of God's promises of deliverance, mercy and peace, as a world-changing event.
