    Ordinary Time (Chad Brekke 07/12/2020)

    Ordinary Time (Chad Brekke 07/12/2020)

    The church is currently in “Ordinary time” but that feels more than a little out of step with the rest of the world. Social unrest and racial tensions run high. A worldwide pandemic rages on. Maybe ordinary time for the church is supposed to be out of step. Maybe this old parable about the sower was always meant to disrupt ordinary life to make room for something extraordinary.
    Scripture: Isaiah 55:10-13, Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23

    A Prophet’s Welcome (Natalia Terfa 06/28/2020)

    A Prophet’s Welcome (Natalia Terfa 06/28/2020)

    When the world feels chaotic and unsteady, where do we look? In the Bible, prophets were sent into the midst of just these times, and their words were not always hopeful. Even Jesus, who preached words of love and care for others, didn’t always have his words received with welcome. What message might God be sending us through today’s Gospel, and how are we going to receive it?

    A Death Like His (Chad Brekke 06/21/2020)

    A Death Like His (Chad Brekke 06/21/2020)

    Paul says that in baptism we are united with Christ in a “death like His”. That is a phrase that should stop us in our tracks. What does it mean to be united with Jesus in a death like his? How can that death set us free to live a new life?
    Scripture: Romans 6:1-11

    Sent For What? (Natalia Terfa 06/14/2020)

    Sent For What? (Natalia Terfa 06/14/2020)

    Last week we heard the Great Commission, the call to go and share the good news of what God is doing. Today we are reminded of this same great commission - that we too are called disciples and that name asks something of us. We are sent to DO something. But what?

    Pentecost (Chad Brekke & Natalia Terfa 05/31/2020)

    Pentecost (Chad Brekke & Natalia Terfa 05/31/2020)

    Pentecost. It's a day where we celebrate the start of the church with breath and fire. It's hard to not make the connections from that first Pentecost to what is happening today. As preachers, we are charged with holding the Gospel in one hand and the newspaper in the other and that's what we did. Say his name. George Floyd.

    An Altar in the World (Chad Brekke 05/17/2020)

    An Altar in the World (Chad Brekke 05/17/2020)

    In this reading from Acts, Paul takes the church on the road. He decides to take the gospel right into the belly of the beast where he knows there will be resistance, if not outright mocking and rejection. Here we have a master class in sharing your faith in a distracted and skeptical world.
