Psalm 23 is never an easy one to preach on - everyone knows it so well! Every time it comes up in the lectionary I try to come up with something new and revolutionary to say about it, but every time I think I realize I just need to let it speak for itself. So that's what I did! I reflect on it briefly, but at the end just center us all back and read the Psalm to close my sermon.
Hope you all are having a great week! xo
Hi friends and happy Marathon Monday! I cannot believe this weather - every single runner earned their race medal ten times over today.
Here is my sermon from yesterday. I preached on the Gospel passage from Luke where Jesus appears to the disciples, shows them the wounds on his hands and feet and then shared a meal with them. I pulled six lessons out of this passage that are still very much relevant to the world we are living in today. I think every now and then it's nice to hear something super practical and easy to understand.
I've got two sermons to post today, one from yesterday and one from last week. Last week I preached from Acts of the Apostles and I talked about doing church - church as a verb, not as a noun. During my children's sermon I had everyone do the wave. At one point I yelled, "freeze!" and we looked at how everyone was doing something different. And even though they were all doing something different, together they were all doing the wave. I explained that's the way church works - we all do something different, but together we're all doing church.
Hi friends! Happy Easter! I hope you all have a wonderful and joyous resurrection celebration. We were busy and blessed at the church. There was a lot going on, but I felt like we had something for everyone on different walks of life.
Here is my sermon - short and sweet! This story speaks for itself.
