  • Western Presbyterian Church welcomes the Rev. Laura Cunningham to the pulpit. Rev. Cunningham preached this sermon as a candidating sermon - meaning, on this day, the congregation also voted to call Rev. Cunningham as their new lead pastor. Her sermon speaks to the ways that we sin, or separate ourselves from God. But, the prayer of Psalm 51 reveals the joy that comes from being filled with the forgiveness of God.

  • Lent is a season to wake up and open our eyes to be totally astonished. It’s a time to discover the shocking ways that God is in our lives and be amazed that God comes this far to be with us. We come to church because in the rituals of worship - hearing the Word, partaking of the sacraments - we have an opportunity to perceive God’s grace most clearly. But then, our worship does not stop here. We are then sent out to look for God, and even more, to partner with God in our various roles and venues to love and bless the people and world God loves so much.

  • To take up your cross, you have to put something down - most likely, that is the self-centered and self-important life. In doing so, one is freed to live with a self-giving love.

  • There is something fascinating about the juxtaposition in the Gospel of Mark of Jesus’ baptism and Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness. This text encourages us to engage our spirituality and shatter our carefully constructed faith worlds. It reminds us that we are freed from the shackles of practicality to make room for spirituality.

  • We need not be afraid of God's work in our lives. It might cause us to do things that make us uncomfortable and God's work in our lives might take us to places unknown. But, we need not be afraid because God's work in our lives takes us to places where all might discover healing and nourishment.
