6th Sunday after Pentecost

Pentecost 6.18 “What He Really Cares About” Mark 5:21-43 Last week, we heard the disciples’ anguished question (in their rapidly sinking boat on the Sea of Galilee) whether Jesus cares that we are perishing? We heard a hint of an answer that both consoled and concerned us:

5th Sunday after Pentecost

Pentecost 5.18 “Not Much Fussed” Mark 4:35-41 So my question, and the Tuesday morning Bible Study (my own personal Sanhedrin) told me not to go there, but I really can’t help it, is this: “what happened to the other, little boats?” Do you ever wonder? I wonder.

4th Sunday after Pentecost

S. Pentecost 4.18 “While You Were Sleeping…” Mark 4:26-34 The problem of salvation has been vexing throughout the history of the world. Adam and Eve passed the buck on the sin thing to the devil in the Garden as we heard last week. God tells Ezekiel in

2nd Sunday after Pentecost

  Pentecost 2.18 “Made For You” Mark 2:23-3:6 It seems like something that hardly concerns modern people like us, this Gospel where they’re fussing at Jesus for picking grain on the Sabbath day, for healing a man with a withered hand on the Sabbath. Because we’re past

Ascension Day (Observed)

Ascension Day (Observed).18 “Ascension” Acts 1:1-11, Luke 24:44-53 So… my question (and there could be lots of questions regarding the Ascension of our Lord!) is this: “how is it the Apostles return to Jerusalem with great joy, continually in the temple worshiping?” Because, taken at face value,

6th Sunday of Easter

Easter 6.18 “What He Actually Commands…” John 15:9-17 St. Paul says that Christianity is a scandal to the Jews and folly to the Greeks (I Cor. 1:23). Jesus promises His Apostles they will be hated by all nations for His Name’s sake (Matt. 24:9). And don’t you

5th Sunday Easter

Easter 5.18 “Without Me…” John 15:1-8 There is a wonderful scene in the not always wonderful cartoon “Archer” (I only know about “Archer” because of the church council’s observation that I’m often overspent on my book allowance and might try television to keep costs down. Because hey:
