    Today God is Feeling... Anxious

    Today God is Feeling... Anxious

    Today God is Feeling...Anxious. We join Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane as he cries out in grief and agitation. It can be comforting to know that Jesus experienced the very same anxiety we do in life. Join Pastor Jacob as he tries to destigmatize conversations around mental health and invites us to be vulnerable as we share our own anxieties.

    Today God is Feeling....Angry

    Today God is Feeling....Angry

    Throughout history some theologians have argued that God is beyond human emotions, but one look through Scripture and it is obvious that God feels as many emotions as we do! Join Pastors Jen and Jacob as they explore God’s wide range of feelings from anger to joy, from compassion to grief. Perhaps we might discover that God knows exactly how we are feeling.

    What If... Jesus Had Died of Old Age

    What If... Jesus Had Died of Old Age

    So much of Christianity is centered on the redemption provided to us through the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. But what if Jesus had died of old age instead? Would God have still found a way to redeem us?

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!
