Jesus Christ calls us to be a joyful community that celebrates God's love, transforms lives, and is a force for justice in the world.

Sermons on Psalms

“I will fear no evil”

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me.” I’m convinced that’s the word we need to hear this morning. We need to hear it on a personal level and we definitely need to hear it on a social level. It’s worth reflecting on where (or in whom) we put our trust because we live in especially anxious times.

“…to all generations”

The one thing that has not changed, the one thing that will not change, is the faithfulness of God. But here’s the thing: God’s faithfulness is most visible in the rear-view mirror. That’s true for a church. That’s true for our personal lives. Providence reveals itself most clearly in retrospect.

Taking Risks for Solidarity

The hard truth is that we still see this kind of pain and lament caused by violence in our world today, almost 3000 years later. The hard truth is that US policy affects people in Latin America. The other truth we know is that our faith, this table of communion, calls us to solidarity, calls us to take risks for the sake of the Gospel.
