Miss Christmas Eve Worship? Watch it Here!

Sermons

Our pastor, to paraphrase theologian Karl Barth, preaches with the Bible open in one tab and news sites open in several others, connecting the ancient stories of our faith to our modern concerns. For his older sermons, you can read his sermon manuscripts, which often match what he actually preached, and find links to videos of worship services and sermons. For his newer sermons, when he is experimenting with preaching without a manuscript, you can find links to the videos.

Temptation

Jesus—the person in whom divinity and humanity, holiness and brokenness, meet—is not peckish, and he is not hungry, he is famished. And the devil is tempting him.

Baptism

As long as we live, remind us of our baptism, remind us of your love.

To See a Light

One of Us (Christmas Eve)

So Ahasuerus, Esther’s husband, the king of Persia, issues the decree. On the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the Persians will kill every Jew in the Empire.
