Sermon for the 6th Sunday of Easter 2017

S. Easter 6.17 “Too Superstitious” Acts 17, John 14:15-21 So what are these commandments that Jesus has given us, that if we love Him, we will keep? An excellent question, but one that seldom gets asked directly and answered clearly—because most people assume they know, without having […]

Sermon for the 4th Sunday of Easter 2017

S. Easter 4.17 “Gladiator Revisited” John 10:1-10 “And the sheep follow Him, for they know His voice.” In a much beloved mini-parable on how He is the Good Shepherd, Jesus paints a lovely picture—which the disciples did not understand. At all. We have to be clear on […]

Sermon for the 3rd Sunday of Easter 2017

S. Easter 3.17 “All Roads Lead…” Luke 24:13-35 They say that all roads lead to Rome. I think all roads lead to Emmaus. At least, I think that’s the point of one of the greatest stories in all the Gospels, Cleopas and his friend walking the road […]

Sermon for the 2nd Sunday of Easter 2017

S. Easter 2.17 “Doubt, Faith, and Skipping Church” John 20:19-31 Most people read this famous Gospel as a story of doubt and faith, the conundrum between seeing and believing. And, no doubt, there’s some of that going on here. But I think it might be as much, […]

Sermon Easter Sunday 2017

Easter Sunday.17 “Power to Take It Again” John 10:17-18 Let me tell you about something kind of cool that happened to your life. You remember your life, right? Good, in some respects, but sadly, messed up in so many others? That sin thing that manifests itself in […]

Sermon Palm Sunday 2017

S. Passion Sunday.17 “Unless” John 12:20-43 These Greek guys want to see Jesus. Worthy goal. A life spent with no other or higher aspiration would be well spent. But where do you look? How do you see? Did they see Jesus that day, those Greeks? John leaves […]

Sermon for the 5th Sunday in Lent 2017

Lent 5.17 “This Changes Everything” John 11:17-27, 38-53 This changes everything. You hear it said of things that aren’t really that important—like presidential elections, Supreme Court nominations, job changes, basketball tournaments (OK, those can be pretty important 🙂 But this, this really does change everything. Or at […]

Sermon for the 4th Sunday in Lent 2017

S. Lent 4.17 “He Sees Pretty Good, For A Blind Dude” John 9:1-41 They say that irony and the love of it is a modern (or postmodern?) thing. I read that the ancients were not as advanced practitioners of this art as we are, that they were […]

Sermon for the 3rd Sunday in Lent 2017

S. Lent 3.17 “Water, Spirit, Truth” John 4:5-26 She does better than Nicodemus did last week, this Samaritan woman. She lets Jesus start the conversation and introduce the subjects to be discussed. That’s good. She asks some questions that start out somewhat polite, but degenerate into snarky, […]

Sermon for the 2nd Sunday in Lent 2017

S. Lent 2.17 “On Shutting Up” John 3:1-17 It’s never a great idea, when you talk to Jesus (if you talk to Jesus?) to start the conversation with what you know. This is my big takeaway from this Gospel, which has had a few pretty significant takeaways […]
