Material to and about Hilltop United Methodist Church in Sandy, Utah.

    Transfiguration Sunday -- Jesus Revealed in our Valleys

    Transfiguration Sunday -- Jesus Revealed in our Valleys

     
    The Transfiguration Text from Luke.  I felt a number of weeks ago that focusing on the valley experience was where the Holy Spirit was carrying me (us?).  There is a good bit of pain at this church over the recent General Conference.  I have tried the last several weeks to minimize direct discussion of General Conference, and focus more on implied elements.  This day, I felt a direct discussion was in order.  All I can tell anyone is that I agonized over what to say, and this is what God provided me.  
    This is from 9:00 AM.  I may also do the 10:30 service, which was a little longer.

    Epiphany + 6 - Sow a New Life

    Epiphany + 6 - Sow a New Life

    First Corinthians 15 meets Luke 6 with a touch of For Every One Born, A Place at the Table.  Our choir performing this piece is shared.  
    Invaluable help here from Rev. Kerry Greenhill.  Her opening prayer, Call to Worship, Confession and Pastoral Prayer were exquisite. 
    I had to add the Youth Choir with their I Believe by Mark Miller.  A great piece and something they do quite well.   
    I confess that General Conference 2019 in St. Louis was in my mind.  I don't think I mention it directly.  
    The sermon starts about 11:30 or so and goes to 38:00 or so.  A little longer than is my norm.  Kerry's Litany of Commitment wraps up the Sermon.

    Epiphany + 5 -- Blessed to be a Blessing

    Epiphany + 5 -- Blessed to be a Blessing

     
    The various scriptures for this Sunday are HERE.  The sermon is from the Luke with touches from the Psalm and the (unread) Jeremiah.  
    I wonder if the title doesn't give the big idea to us:  "Blessed to be a Blessing."

    Epiphany + 4 -- Faithful to the Call

    Epiphany + 4 -- Faithful to the Call

    Faithful to the Call -- Luke 5: 1-11
     
    The text was the Revised Common Lectionary Luke passage.  I was trying to balance the idea of faithfulness and call.  This was Scout Sunday, so I did get over into our local context a good bit.
