Buy without money, Lent 2022

This was a weird Sunday. For what I’m fairly certain is the second time in my life, the weather meant that driving to church was a bad idea–something that became clearer as the day went on. I’m blessed with lay people who are good about stepping up and helping out, but the sermon is a […]

To Protect?, Lent 2022

Jesus, hungry, in the desert. Hearing this weeks episode from The First Reading Podcast really changed how I heard the exchanges between Jesus and the devil. Here’s what I said: I worked most closely with Luke 4.1-13.

Mountaintops and Mess, February 2022

I normally really enjoy where these readings fall. A last glorious moment before the hard questions of Lent. But as we watch various regions drop their health measures and as we watch the horrors of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine unfold, glory seems far away. Here’s what I said: I worked most closely with Luke 9.28-43a.

The Heavens Opened, Jan 2022

This sermon is what happens when I’m reflecting on God’s proclamation about Jesus being Beloved while Glennon Doyle’s first podcast of the new year begins with a take down of resolutions. I worked with Luke 3.15-17, 21-22.

Full Grace and Glory, January 2022

I love this passage from John. I think it’s one of the first passages I memorized (even if only roughly). For years I dreaded preaching it at Christmas, but I’ve come to love hearing it’s majesty next to the imagery of a baby in a manger. For this is God. I worked with John 1.1-18

Precocious, Christmas 1 2021

In this morning’s Gospel we jump 12 years from, checks notes, yesterday. I love Jesus’s knowledge that this is where he belongs, in his father’s house. I love the love (and frustration) Mary and Joseph feel. I worked with Luke 2.41-52.
