As Jesus turns water into wine, he reveals the abundance of God’s glory. We mustn’t be reluctant to ask for God’s glory to be revealed in our lives.

In it together
God draws everyone home in the waters of baptism, calling us by name and joining us together as God's beloved family.

Our Lessons & Carols service is bookended by readings from Genesis and Luke, both of which start with the words "In the beginning..." The birth of Jesus is a new beginning for all of creation, one rooted in peace for all of creation.

John's gospel is special in that it tells the story of incarnation without the "usual" trappings of the nativity. It welcomes Jesus as the Word, which is certainly good news for us all. Merry Christmas!

This time of year is deeply rooted in memories and tradition, and we sometimes lose sight of the new beginning that Christ's birth offers. "This day" something incredible happens in Bethlehem, and the world will never be the same again!

All I Want for Christmas
It's easy to think or sing about what we want for Christmas. The prophetic witness of Elizabeth and Mary helps us recognize that through Jesus, what we really want for Christmas is something we already have.

Good News (Not Easy News)
John's sermon in the wilderness continues with some pretty harsh words, but at the bottom of it all is indeed good news. The good news God offers isn't always what we expect, but thankfully, nothing can get in its way.

Preparing & Repenting
We hear the voice of John crying in the wilderness a message of preparation and repentance. Repentance is how we prepare for a divine guest this time of the year.

We are surrounded by cosmic loss, but in the midst of all the things that fill us with fear, there are also signs of hope. Lift up your heads. Christ comes!

We give thanks as we welcome Pr. Amy Gillespie of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church (Lombard, Ill.) for a special pastoral dialogue. Our conversation reflects on the texts and the place of worry (or lack thereof) in our lives at this moment.

Love the weeds
Life is messy! The weeds of evil invade our beautiful fields of wheat, but Jesus tells us to let them be. Instead, we are called to love the weeds, and leave the judgment to God.

Parables of Abundance
The "Parable of the Sower" is a classic story of soils (good & not), but really it's all about abundance in sowing the seeds of God's Kingdom.
12 minutes | Jul 4, 2020
Jesus is aware that some truths are simply hard to face, but he offers us rest and an opportunity to work together for the sake of ultimate truth revealed in God's Kingdom.

Being welcoming isn't always just the work of the church, but instead, Jesus reminds his disciples that it is just as important that they learn to be welcomed too.
12 minutes | Jun 20, 2020
Bring it on
The path of discipleship is not easy. Jesus asks his followers (including us!) to do the hard thing and hold fast to the good news, even when the world seems to be falling apart.
15 minutes | Jun 13, 2020
Particular > Universal
Jesus says to start particular ("The lost sheep") then go universal ("All nations"). Messages like "Black Lives Matter" also start particular and point to a universal truth: we are all made in God's divine image.
