Capitol Hill United Methodist Church, Washington, DC Podcast
About This Show
This podcast features the weekly sermon message, usually presented by our pastor, Rev. Alisa Lasater Wailoo. CHUMC is located at 5th Street and Pennsylvania Ave SE, Washington, DC, and we embrace as a gift the diversity of our neighborhood and the world, celebrating our human family's diversity of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, age, faith history, economic status, marital status, physical and mental ability, and education. We affirm that all people are created in the image of God and as beloved children of God, all are worthy of God's love and grace.
Recognizing that there are differences among us, we still believe that we can love alike even though we may not think alike. We proclaim this statement of welcome to all who have known the pain of exclusion or discrimination in the church or in society. We invite all people to join us in our faith journey toward greater love, understanding, and mutual respect.

Life is Futile! So What's the Point!?
Are you a cynic? Or just feeling, at times, like there’s no point to it all?
Well get ready for our new Sermon Series, “What’s the Point? A Look at Life through the Lens of Ecclesiastes.”
Ecclesiastes is one of the most simple yet confounding books of the Bible. It questions God and systematically shoots down most of our simple explanations for the meaning of life. As Temper Longman puts it, “The sentiments of the main speaker of the book sound incredibly modern. Expressing the uncertainty and anxieties of our own age, he is driven by the question, ‘Where can we find meaning in the world?’”
So come to this sermon to explore these life questions and more, not through the old familiar Scripture passages but with an ancient author who repeatedly proclaims, “Vanity of Vanities! It’s all Vanity.”
Is it? Come and let’s ask God together. And if you have friends who feels like life is just “chasing the wind” (another great phrase from Ecclesiastes), invite them to listen along.
