Coming This Sunday, December 9

December 9: The evangelist Luke was clear as to his purpose. He intended to write an orderly account. This explains in part his effort to synchronize the historical clock. For the good physician, the Christian calendar does not begin with the birth of Jesus, but "in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar." It was into the world of Caesar and his minions that "the word of God came down to John the son of Zechariah in the wilderness." Join me on the second Sunday of Advent with your heart attuned to the preparation Advent requires of you.

Coming This Sunday, December 2

December 2: We can never know about the days to come, wrote Carly Simon, but we think about them anyway.  The Christian believes the future is God’s, though he/she never clearly knows the days to come.  Jeremiah, Paul and Jesus all invite us to think about the days.  On this first Sunday of Advent we begin our anticipation of the birth of Jesus.  Join me as we align our hearts with “the good news of great joy” and anticipate the obedience we will offer the Christ child. —Pastor Steven

Coming This Sunday, November 25

November 25: Christians everywhere at all times have believed that human  beings are created in God’s image, loved by God and redeemed by Christ.  Made in the image of God, human beings are not just their bodies.  In addition to a body, God gives human beings the “breath of life.”  Whatever constitutes the “breath of life,” it continues with them until they actually die.  Join me Sunday as we explore this bedrock tenet of Christianity and how it guides the Christian dealing with Alzheimer’s.

Coming This Sunday, November 11

November 11: In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus’ public ministry comes to a close on Tuesday of Holy Week.  Seated in the Court of Women in the Jerusalem Temple, he excoriates some scribes and commends a widow.  It is his last teaching before his death.  Join me Sunday as we consider this lesson before dying. —Pastor Steven
