The readings can be found here.  I worked with Luke 12:24-56.

Crazy Thin Spaces, Senior High 2013

I had the opportunity to preach at the closing Eucharist of Senior High Camp. The lessons were 2 Samuel 6:1-23 (David dancing) and Luke 4:14-30 (Jesus reading Isaiah in the synagogue). The first lesson read turned out to be from 2 Samuel 2–slight miss-communication there.

I invited the campers to carry out with them a bold and crazy life, to the work of wearing the world thin.

Camp: Wednesday 2012

The readings for today were: Exodus 14:15-31, Psalm 15, and Luke 8:16-18. Our theme this summer is: “You are the light of the world.”

These kids are awesome! They are doing a great job of paying attention and remembering what we’ve been talking about. (I should probably apologize, I know they get pretty loud a couple of times during this sermon.) Today is about being visible.

As with my other sermons at Camp, there is a lot of dialogue. I do my best to make sure that the sense of the conversation is picked up. Thank you for your patience.

When I preach with children I use a lot of dialogue; I do my best to make sure that the sense of the conversation is picked up by the mic but please be patient. Thank you.
