Unboxing God - July 4, 2021

1 Corinthians 13: 9 -13

“ for we know only in part, and we prophesy only in part; but when the complete comes, the partial will come to an end. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways. For now, we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face-to-face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.”

As I create this message for today I am surrounded by boxes, and more boxes, and all kinds of containers that have moved with me across a number of years and many, many miles. And I am going to be surrounded by them for a few more weeks in one house before they move into

Hello-Goodbye sermon series - June 27, 2021


Luke 12: 13-21

Every day we get closer and closer to more people being vaccinated from Covid-19 and one of the things I am most excited to do is visit grandparents. Grandparents are awesome as they often times comfort us with inspiration, candy, and good old-fashioned stories of gumption. Sometimes they are the only ones allowed to share their wisdom through their bias and unfiltered lenses because if grandma survived a pandemic, a war, and birthed 19 kids through the depression she can pretty much get away with any colorful language she chooses. Likewise, Grandpa Jesus survived infanticide, racism, and starvation in the desert so if he calls someone a fool, you better listen up. Yep, our charismatic, miracle-working die for you on the cross

John 21:1-14

Like a variety of the scriptures we’ve studied this Spring, I feel this one needs to come with a preface: many scholars claim John 21 is a later addition. That the original gospel finished with the resurrection and the visits to the disciples in the upper room and that chapter 21 came later as a redaction or addition. And yet, even if it was added later, it carries the thread of the Gospel, such that it doesn’t read as an imposter chapter, and it stuck, like the last half of Mark chapter 16, which is also understood as a later edition. I’m not sure arguing about original texts is worth it, at least not for today’s sermon, but it does seem worth mentioning since we don’t often tell this story and hear this scripture passage. You are educated Christians who enjoy learning, asking questions, and looking for a different
