Sermons on Worship
Amos has a strong and specific testimony about God’s feelings about our worship. In short, worship on Sunday with justice Monday-Friday is deeply troubling to God. How can we approach worship in a way that is less disturbing to God and transformative to us?
Everyone dreams about their future. We hope for the very best. God does, too. God dreams for a time when we will all live in perfect love together, and each one of us has been included in God’s dream to make it happen.
Christ is always among us. Christ is with us in every person we meet. Our calling is to recognize that our hearts and minds (in fact our heads) are on fire with the presence of God. Our challenge is to recognize this when we are in the moment, so we don’t just look back and say, “Oh, my head was on fire the whole time.”
When we are young we accept the Resurrection at face value. As we study and reflect up in it we see there is much more to the story. Then at some point the simple truths and hope of Resurrection become all we may need.
