Hurry Up And Wait (Chad Brekke 2/26/17)

Waiting for a word from the Lord can be exhausting. Moses waits high on the mountain while Joshua waits at base camp and the people wait far below. And what about you? Do you expect to hear from God anytime soon?

Scripture: Exodus 24:12-18; Matthew 17:1-9

More Than Tolerance (Natalia Terfa 2/19/17)

Our readings today call us to radical love on behalf of others. We often view tolerance as good enough in the world, but what if it’s not? What if we’re called to be more than tolerant of those who differ from us? And what does it look like to love people who we consider unloveable?

Scripture: Leviticus 19:9-18; Matthew 5:38-48

Beyond the Letter of the Law (Chad Brekke 2/12/17)

Obeying the 10 commandments perfectly was already difficult to pull off but wait until Jesus gets done with them! What hope do we have now? Well, let’s find out together!

Active Faith (Natalia Terfa 2/5/17)

We Minnesotans sure know a lot about being passive. Aren’t we the land called "Passive-Aggresiva"? We don’t like to rock the boat, make too much of a fuss, put anyone out. But the examples of the Kingdom of God given by Jesus today are anything but passive. What does it look like to life an active faith?

Opposite Day (Chad Brekke 1/29/17)

Many people have stories of profound God experiences, times when the only explanation is supernatural. The glory of the Lord surrounded the shepherds in the Christmas story and on top of that they heard from angels! But what if you don’t get one of those moments? What if your whole life seems to be one big bummer?

Scripture: Psalm 15; 1 Corinthians 1:18-31; Matthew 5:1-12

Come And See (Natalia Terfa 1/15/17)

We know we’ve been claimed in our baptisms, but now what? Today we hear the story of the call of the disciples and we’ll take some time to reflect on our own call and what it might mean to take that call into the world around us.

Scripture: Isaiah 49:5-7; John 1:35-42

Pure Promise (Natalia Terfa 1/8/17)

When we are baptized we are given a promise. This isn’t the same kind of promise we make to each other as friends, as neighbors, as citizens, as spouses, or as parents. It’s a special kind of promise that we are going to dig into a bit today.

Scripture: Isaiah 42:5-9; Matthew 3:13-17

Be It Resolved (Natalia Terfa 1/1/17)

I know no person who reads this text and thinks “well that’s an uplifting one!” It’s a brutal and violent story right in the midst of our celebrations. But there are things to be learned from this story, both from the family of Jesus and from Herod. So what happens when we let our anger over the way things worked out take over? What might mean for us that the son of God was a refugee? And how can we come together on this new year and resolve to be followers of Christ once again?

Scripture: Isaiah 63:7-9; Matthew 2:13-23
