Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 26—September 28, 2008

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: I want you to pose for me while I take some pictures: one of you as the best child you can be, one as you really are, and one funny pose. In our Gospel today, we have a story of two brothers who took different poses. One was like when your mother says to clean your room and you say yes but just hide everything in the closet. The other said no but then did the work. God doesn’t want us to pretend but to be who we are. And God wants our hearts to change so we are faithful.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 25—September 21, 2008

Preacher: Pastor P. J. Sabbithi
Summary: When I was in school, I always wanted to be first in line. One day I was first, but when I got to the door, I had to hold it open for everyone else, and I was the last to go in. Sometimes as Christians we are left holding the door for others. It doesn’t sound fair, but it is OK because we are helping others.

Holy Cross Day—September 14, 2008

Preacher: Pastor Dan Werning
Summary: You may recognize this symbol with the snakes as a medical symbol, and here I have a bottle of aspirin. If a doctor told you to look at this bottle, it wouldn’t help your headache. But we have a story of Moses making a bronze snake, and when people looked at it, it cured their snake bite. Here we have Jesus on the cross, and Jesus says to look at me and be forgiven and healed of troubles medicine cannot heal.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 23—September 7, 2008

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Do you ever get into a fight with a friend? Sometimes when that happens, kids will to around to everyone one else an complain. But Jesus says to go talk to the friend alone, and if that doesn’t work, to take some friends along. Jesus also says that when two or three are gathered in his name, he is there too. When we disagree with a friend, and then ask Jesus in, it can bring everyone together and make a beautiful rainbow—all of God’s beautiful children together.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 22—August 31, 2008

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Being part of the church and being a Christian is not always fun. Sometimes it is work. These hats can represent different kinds of work, and sometimes the hats get dirty. In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells Peter and the disciples that he will die, and Peter wants to stop him. Peter wants Jesus’s hat to stay clean, but that was not what was meant to be. Sometimes we get broken and dirty, but Jesus loves us, and Jesus will be with us when we do the work God calls us to do.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 21—August 24, 2008

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Who is Jesus? You know he is the Son of God. In today’s Gospel, people said that Jesus was many things, but Peter and the disciples knew he was the Messiah. You know Jesus died on the cross for us, and Jesus knows who you are.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 20—August 17, 2008

Preacher: Seminarian Jacob Burkman
Summary: When I was young, I liked to play in mud like this and get my hands dirty. When you get your hands dirty, your parents tell you to wash before you eat, but will it hurt if you eat some dirt? Jesus tells us in today’s Gospel that it’s not what goes into your mouth that will hurt you. Would you eat this bug? It’s yucky, but it won’t hurt you. It’s hurtful words that come out of your mouth that cause trouble.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 19—August 10, 2008

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel, Jesus walked on the water, but Peter had trouble. The disciples were in a boat, there was a storm, and everyone was afraid. If you were in a boat in a storm, you would put on a life jacket like this. Jesus didn’t let Peter sink, and it’s the same for us. Jesus says, “I’m your life preserver, and I will always save you.”

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 18—August 3, 2008

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Did you hear today’s lesson from the Hebrew scriptures where the prophet gets everyone’s attention with a big “ho!”? If you’ve ever been really thirsty, you know how good this water I’m drinking tastes. Do you want some? Like the prophet says, there is plenty, and it’s free. You can also come and drink from God’s fountain of love. Part of what we get to do as the church is to tell the whole world, “Ho! Come to the fountain!”
