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.

That is how change happens: a little bit at a time, and, only then, all at once.

Sarah and Hagar

In our trauma, we turn to sin as a balm for the pain. In our sin we traumatize one another. And there are only so many ways that the cycle can end.
