    On this most powerful night of the year, Jesus gives up his last breath. Our breath is so important to us, but it has been cut short for so many in the dual pandemics of Covid-19 and racism. As we mourn the death of Christ tonight, we also mourn those who have lost in the last year. We pray for the hope of resurrection for us all.

Such a great change

Listening to these sermons during the week remind me what a progressive church body this is compared to other sermons I’ve listened to in the past. There’s such a relevant take to each sermon that doesn’t feel trite, and instead feels applicable to my everyday life.

Perfect Reminder

Relevant sermons bring such a refreshing take on how the gospel is incorporated into our everyday lives. The inclusivity message from the church along with tying in real world events makes this the perfect reminder of how we incorporate God’s word into everything we do.

Oh, I missed a Sunday!

I missed a Sunday at Claremont United Church of Christ because I really didn’t feel well and I wish I went anyway! I heard it was another fantastic service with everyone wearing red, confirmands that I knew sharing their faith statements, confetti cannons spreading the Holy Spirit upon all the children, AND another fabulous sermon! Thank goodness they use this podcast so I can catch up on at least one fabulous aspect of my missed day at church!
