    “Salt and Light” – Intern Kirsten Wee – Sunday, February 9, 2020

    “Salt and Light” – Intern Kirsten Wee – Sunday, February 9, 2020

    Intern Kirsten loves Gumbo from her home town
    of New Orleans. One essential seasoning: salt. She uses it as a metaphor to remind us that as Jesus said in today’s
    Gospel taken from the Sermon on the Mount, we are the salt of the earth and the
    light of the world. We are charged, out
    of love for fellow human beings, to open our hearts and minds in service to one another.

    “The Light of the Generations”, Rev. Craig Brown – Feb. 2, 2020

    “The Light of the Generations”, Rev. Craig Brown – Feb. 2, 2020

    Six-year-old
    Brock Brown probably didn’t realize he was just what a grieving woman needed on
    flight from Florida to Iowa.  Pastor
    Craig uses this story of his son, supplements it with today’s Gospel and makes
    these points: we’re a community in Christ, we all have a purpose, and we never
    know when we’ll be just what someone needs.

    “Come As You Are” – Intern Kirsten Wee – Sunday, January 26, 2020

    “Come As You Are” – Intern Kirsten Wee – Sunday, January 26, 2020

    Today’s Gospel
    documents the closing of a dark time In Galilee:  the beginning of Jesus’ public ministry as He
    calls His disciples.  Intern Kirsten draws
    from this a potentially-dark period of her life to make a point:  Even in our own dark times, God sees the
    light within us and calls us – just as we are, despite our many flaws and
    shortcomings.Watch the video of this sermon at Youtube.com/firstlutherancr.

    "Come and See” – Rev. Dr. Steve Knudson – Jan. 19, 2020

    "Come and See” – Rev. Dr. Steve Knudson – Jan. 19, 2020

    Pastor
    Steve observes that the Big Questions of our lives and our faith don’t change –
    the answers change.  He notes the best
    way to get those ever-changing answers is with fellow believers, and in prayer
    and communion.  Come.  See. 
    Remain.

    "Come With Me” - Rev. Craig Brown - January 12, 2020

    "Come With Me” - Rev. Craig Brown - January 12, 2020

    Pastor Craig tells us
    Jesus doesn’t ask us to do anything He didn’t do first.  Today we celebrate Jesus’ baptism, one of the
    things He did before we did -- for us, our children and all humankind.  When any of us falters in our faith, He will
    be with us.  He’s been there.
