The flawed inner circle: a sermon for the last Sunday after Epiphany 2-10-13

The lessons for Sunday can be found byclicking here. I worked most closely with Luke 9:28-36.

Jesus brings Peter, James, and John up the mountain where Moses and Elijah appear as Jesus is transfigured. This is an inner circle of amazing flawed people. Which might be why Jesus picked them.

(There will be a few moments of silence before the sermon begins. Thank you for your patience.)

SR: Epiphany and other big things

Sermon Review

Link:Epiphany

Summary of what I was saying and why:
Do you have to be noticed to do something big?
This question, and the first two answers I may have tried to preach, have little to do with being a Christian.

Theology: Christianity is about being transformed by God’s love
Jesus Count: moderate
Good News: it’s not about how big the things we do are
What did I change on my feet? Not much.
What didn’t work/what did I miss?
I think there may be a better ending out there.

What did work?
I liked using the story from undergraduate–which was very real. And he was a great professor.

Other sermons I liked:
Bishop Fisher
I will never hear the story of the wise men the same way after reading this sermon about taking a different way home.

Priest Condon talks about the Magi, history, and faith.

Priest Sinclair” preaches about how epiphanies happen to atypical faithful.

Epiphany Last, 2011

The lessons for this Sunday can be found here. I worked most closely with Matthew 17:1-9.

Jesus gets transfigured and God speaks and this moment is about the special uniqueness of Jesus. And nothing else, right? Except, Jesus spent a lot of time talking to us and about us. So what if there’s another layer to the story…..

(There will be a few seconds of silence before the sermon starts. Thank you for your patience.)

Epiphany 7, 2011

The readings for this Sunday can be found here. I worked most closely with Matthew 5:38-48.

Today’s Gospel ends with “Be perfect, therefore, as your Heavenly Father is perfect.” But maybe it should be “Seek shalom, therefore, as your Heavenly Father is shalom.” Discussion of the Greek and Hebrew lies ahead.

(There will be a few moments of silence before the sermon begins. Thanks for your patience.)

Epiphany 6, 2011

The readings for this Sunday can be found here. I worked most closely with Matthew 5:21-37.

In a continuation of last weeks reading, Jesus goes on to address anger, adultery, divorce, and other spectacularly human things. These statements are too often dismissed for various reasons, what should we be doing with them?

(There will be a few moments of silence before the sermon begins. Thanks for your patience.)
