Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 26—September 27, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel, the disciples wanted to Jesus to stop some people form healing in Jesus’ name, but he said it was OK. God gives each of us gifts so we can do wonderful things. It’s OK if everyone is not the same.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 25—September 20, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Bruce P. Craft

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 24—September 13, 2009

Preacher: Pastor J. P. Sabithi
Summary: It seems like we never stop talking all day long. We cannot escape words. In today’s lesson, James tells us to speak wisely.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 23—September 6, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel, we hear about two healings. In the second one, Jesus heals a man who is deaf and cannot talk by saying, “Be opened!” Jesus also wants us to be opened to God’s love so the Spirit flows through us and leads us to all kinds of blessings.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 22—August 30, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel, the religious leaders criticize Jesus and the disciples because they didn’t wash their hands before eating. I’m sure your parents always tell you to wash, too. If someone says bad things about you, you know it hurts. So Jesus says that it’s not what goes into our mouths that makes us bad; it’s what comes out of them that separates us from God and each other.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 21—August 23, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s reading from Ephesians, Paul tells us not to worry about physical enemies but to protect ourselves from spiritual enemies by putting on the armor of God. That armor is God’s love, and we are always safe when we put on God’s love.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 20—August 16, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: If you could have anything you wanted from the refreshment table after church, what would you want? A doughnut? Funnel cake? Well, in today’s Gospel, Jesus tells the crowd to eat his flesh and drink his blood. He wanted them to eat what is good for them, what gives life. And Jesus wants us to come together and eat God’s love and joy and forgiveness. We do that every week in Holy Communion, when Jesus gives us one heck of a breakfast.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 19—August 9, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel, Jesus says, “I am the bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of me will live forever.” I don’t know if I want to go to work every day forever, but what Jesus really means is that God will always be with us. Let’s sing this song: “Let Us Break Bread Together.” In a little, we will break bread together in Communion. That’s how Jesus feeds us.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 18—August 2, 2009

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: This morning I went looking for the Bread of Life, and I think I found it. Here is some whole wheat bread. Is it the Bread of Life? These bagels? This cheeseburger bun? These tortillas? If it’s not any of these, where is the Bread of Life? Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.” Jesus feeds us, gives us hope and love and joy, so we can know God.
