Most weeks, our worship leader offers a 15–20 minute sermon based on the Scripture texts for the day.
Our regular preacher is pretty versatile. She’ll tell stories, pull together different ideas, lead a meditation, give the congregation an “assignment” to talk about in twos or threes, show a slide show or video, or sometimes even sing to the congregation. The sermon functions to deepen our reflection on the Scripture themes of the day, and often leaves us with a challenge or a question.
Scripture texts are outlined in the Revised Common Lectionary.
Rev. Cari preaching on 2 Corinthians 5:16-21 and Luke 15:1-3, 11b-32, and concluding with a Mary Oliver poem.
Rev. Cari preaching on Isaiah 55:1-9 and Luke 13:31-35 for the third Sunday in Lent.
This sermon for the second Sunday in Lent was based on Genesis 15 and Luke 13:31-35 and also tangles with the question, “Was Jesus political?”
