Palm Sunday’s Warning
Palm Sunday is a day of celebration in the midst of Lent - but it also serves as a warning to us. It warns us just how quickly we can (and do) change our allegiances, and it warns us what can happen when we change our allegiances. But it also reminds us that there is hope for us when our allegiances change. This sermon from Psalm 18:1-2, 19-29 considers the warning of Palm Sunday.

The Uneven Odds
In light of our circumstances, it is easy to be irritated with Psalm 126. It might be hard to believe that God can, will, or even wants to change your circumstances for the better. But even if you are annoyed with Psalm 126, this psalm is good news. It is good news because even now, against all odds, God is at work and making all things new. This sermon argues that it is okay to be annoyed with this psalm and urges us to make this psalm our prayer anyway.

Confession and Coming Home
Confession is a common theme throughout scripture, and confession has been an important part of the church since the beginning. So why does confession give us so much anxiety?

Or does confession invite us to come home?

God is our Home
We often misread texts like Psalm 90:1-2, 9-16. We think these words promise us that the "truly faithful" do not suffer. We have used these words to justify the belief that our suffering means we don't trust God enough or that we are not faithful enough - but that is not what his psalm promises. This sermon, preached on the first Sunday in Lent, considers how faithfulness and suffering coexist, and asks the question of where God is in our suffering.

The Freedom of the Spirit
In 2 Corinthians 3:12-4:2, Paul writes, "where the Lord's Spirit is, there is freedom." But what exactly is this freedom?

This sermon seeks to answer these questions and considers how the freedom of the Spirit is not just a freedom FROM, but a freedom FOR something.

God is in the Business of Resurrection
If resurrection is the ultimate end, then why does this life matter? Are we just passing through this life? Are our lives and the problems we face insignificant? This sermon from 1 Corinthians 15:35-50 considers what resurrection means for this life. God is the God who makes all things new, not all new things - which mean this life does matter.

Resurrection is an essential part of our faith. But sometimes, we emphasize resurrection to the point of downplaying death- which has led to the belief that we do not have permission to grieve. This sermon from 1 Corinthians 15:12-20 considers what it means to practice resurrection hope and grief.

The Body Analogy
In 1 Corinthians 12:12-31a, Paul seems to contradict himself. We have long understood Paul's body analogy to mean there is a hierarchy in the church. But is that what Paul means? Is Paul even the first person to use this analogy? What is Paul REALLY saying? This sermon considers these questions, reminds us that our differences come from the one Spirit, and celebrates the beauty we find in our diversity.

Spiritual Gifts and Delight
This Sermon (preached on January 16th) is about 1 Corinthians 12:1-11. We often think the beauty of his passage lies in the spiritual gifts- but the real beauty of his passage is in the way it draws our attention to the Giver and calls us to delight. This passage invites us to ask, "what is good? What is beautiful? And what is true?
