Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 18—July 31, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: You know today’s story about Jesus feeding more than 5,000 people. His cousin John the Baptist had been killed, and Jesus was sad, but there were many people wanting to listen to him. The Gospel says Jesus had compassion for the people. That means he felt with them. So even though he was sad, he healed the people and taught them; and even though the disciples wanted to send the people away, Jesus fed them with just five loaves and two fish. Soon we will serve all the people here with just a little bread and wine. Your tummies may not be full, but we will all be full of God’s love. It’s not how much we have but what God does with what we have.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 17—July 24, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: This Sunday Jesus is telling parables about the kingdom of God. When we say kingdom, we think about kings and castles and big stuff. But these parables are about little things like a mustard seed—a little seed that grows into a big bush. The kingdom of heaven starts out as something small, but it grows until it is huge. It’s like God’s love in you that grows to have a great big effect on the world.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 16—July 17, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Again this week, Jesus is talking about plants. Now you all know there are two kinds of plants: good plants and weeds. But it can be hard to tell the difference, and when we try to pull out the weeds, we can pull up the good plants instead. It’s the same with people. All people belong to God, and God loves everyone. Since we can’t tell the difference, we should love and respect everyone.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 15—July 10, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: We have a green plant with us today. You know that plants like this come from seeds and need dirt, water, and nutrients to grow. In today’s Gospel, Jesus talks about seeds growing and the soil they need. In the same way, babies need support to grow in the Word. You, as older children, can be good soil for the seeds of the Word to grow in others.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 14—July 3, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Steve Jensen
Summary: In today’s Gospel, Jesus talks about a yoke. That’s not the center of an egg; it’s a way for two oxen or water buffaloes to work together and help each other out pulling a heavy cart. We can’t carry the burdens of our lives alone, but yoked with Jesus, we can make it through. This is another way Jesus loves us and is always with us.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 13—June 26, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel, Jesus says that we should welcome everyone. Jesus wants us to welcome strangers and people who are different from us, just like he welcomed the children when the disciples tried to keep them away. You are not too young to be welcomed by God, and you are not too young to welcome others. Our calling as children of God is to welcome everyone.

Trinity Sunday—June 19, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Today is Trinity Sunday, when we try to understand more about God. We often talk about God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, but those are only three of many ways to talk about God. We also call God Mother or Creator or Redeemer or Helper or Friend. God is all these and much more. The Trinity helps us think about God in many ways, but the most important idea is that God will be with you all forever.
