    Simple, Not Easy

    Simple, Not Easy

    Eric Crisp - 2 Kings 5:1-16. Naaman's successful life is summarized in a few sentences but the final phrase, "he suffered from leprosy," overshadows everything else. What do we do when one monumental phrase looms over the sentence of our life? Naaman's story shows us that God's seemingly simple instructions for our monumental problems aren't always easy.

    The God in Negative Space

    The God in Negative Space

    Steve DeNeff - Esther 3:1-6; 4:1-17. When God seems absent, look for Him in the negative space, in the places between the other things you’ve been looking at.

    The Prophet, Widow, and Son

    The Prophet, Widow, and Son

    Matthew Beck - 1 Kings 17:7-24. Israel has lost her way. Her kings are evil; her prophets, rejected; widows, abandoned; and sons, without breath. A devastating drought appears to be her end. But just as the brook dries up and only crumbs remain in the flour jar, Yahweh brings a sudden joyous turn. Miraculous meals are provided, sins are forgiven, a child resuscitated, as Yahweh tells the story of Israel coming back to life through a prophet, a widow, and her son.

    Transitions

    Transitions

    Steve DeNeff - Genesis 45:1-11; 46:1-7. How do we manage the many transitions we’ve been asked (required?) to make in the last year of our lives?  Toward the end of his life, Jacob was forced to gather his possessions and head to Egypt, where he would remain for the rest of his life. Many times, we’ve made that journey, leaving what we know, for what is unfamiliar; foregoing what we love, for what is unpleasant. But God meets Jacob at the border and offers a promise that every child of God should hear.

    Downstream

    Downstream

    Ethan Linder - Exodus 1:22, 2:1-10. From Moses’ life, we learn that the world is littered with possibilities of divine intervention (burning bushes, plagues on enemies, waters parted, God’s people delivered). But if we zoom in on Moses’ first days, we learn from another figure (Moses’ mother) that sometimes, God doesn’t remove suffering or give clear direction, and we’re left to make the most of a desperate circumstance. This sermon will meet us in that space, helping us to learn to lean into the Spirit, even when God doesn’t offer clarity or relief.

    The Dreamer

    The Dreamer

    Steve DeNeff - Genesis 37:2-11; 12-13, 17b-28. “Then he remembered the dream…”. We’ve all had dreams, at one time or another, but where did they come from? And what are they for? Joseph’s dreams are an example of what God intends for ours. Like Joseph, we have them and forget them, but on the day we remember them, everything changes and everything comes together.
