Confidence Wrapped in Humility

PROPER 25 / C Joel 2:23-32; 2 Tim 4:6-8,16-18; Lk 18:9-14 20 October 2019 Over the course of the past week, I ran across a quote attributed to the 16th century German church reformer, Martin Luther: He who has but a single word of Scripture and is unable to make from it an entire sermon, ought never to be a preacher. Quite a challenge to anyone standing in this spot on a Sunday morning! Now, Pastor Luther, was, by all accounts, an extremely confident individual – some of his contemporaries even said arrogant! – and I have no doubt that he could do just that: one word from the Bible . . . then, presto! . . . full-blown, two-hour sermon! And being one who always likes a good challenge (even fr

Persistence in the Face of Injustice

8:00 ONLY - 20 October 2019 Proper 24 / Year C Jeremiah 31:27-34; Psalm 119:97-104; 2 Timothy 3:14-4:5; Luke 18:1-8 I am willing to bet that every last one of us has had an experience like the persistent widow in this morning’s Gospel.

At one time or another, we all experience the exasperation and frus

October 13, 2019 PROPER 23 / C Jeremiah 29:1, 4-7; Psalm 66:1-11; 2 Timothy 2:8-15; Luke 17:11-19 “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” That’s a good prayer to know. Indeed, if you’re only going to learn one prayer or memorize one scripture verse, this is a good one to know by heart. You may be surprised to learn that there are several resurrection stories in the Bible, this morning’s Gospel being one of them. The story of Jesus and the ten lepers is really a resurrection story about life - and death - and then, invitation into a new life. It is really a story about our lives, about our deaths, and about our prospects for new life. It is about the choices we have, and the choices we make. It’s
