Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 26—September 25, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: When your parents tell you to do something, you do it because they have authority over you. In today’s Gospel, they ask Jesus where his authority came from. God gave Jesus authority, and Jesus gives each of you authority to love and care, to heal and share God’s word with others.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 25—September 18, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: I’m sure you do chores at home, and maybe you get paid. Now, if one of you did a lot of chores, and another did only a little, but you both got paid the same, I know you would think it wasn’t fair. But in today’s Gospel, Jesus tells a story about a land owner who paid people who worked all day the same as those who only worked a few hours. This story tells us that God’s love is the same for everyone, whether they deserve it or not. I’m glad that God loves us all the same.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 24—September 11, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Last week talked about what to do when someone hurts us, but it gets harder today. When someone hurts us, we may want to hurt them back. But in today’s Gospel, Jesus says that doesn’t work, and we should forgive them every time. “Forgive” means giving your heart and love before the other person deserves it. That is the only way we can help people and change things. God forgives us, and we forgive others by giving God’s love away.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 23—September 4, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: When someone hurts us, we often want to get back at them, but that may not be the best thing to do. In today’s Gospel, Jesus says we should first talk to the person and then take others with us so we can figure out the problem and resolve it. Instead of getting back, we are supposed to love the other person so there is a chance of becoming friends. This gives a chance for God’s love to work in the other person and in us.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 22—August 28, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: You know that you should be kind to people, but not everyone is that way. When I was young, I knew a boy who was a bully, and he never changed, even if he was sent to the principal’s office. In today’s Gospel, Peter had the wrong idea of what it meant for Jesus to be the Messiah. But Jesus died to show us how to live, and that’s how we know how treat people and that we should love our enemies.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 21/Carl Crosier’s Last Sunday—August 21, 2011

No Children’s Conversation

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 20—August 14, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel story, we have something unexpected. Jesus repents and changes. A non-Jewish woman comes to ask for healing, and Jesus refuses, saying he was sent only to the Jews and that you don’t give the children’s food to dogs. But she replies that the dogs can eat the crumbs. Jesus is amazed at her faith and heals her daughter. In this story, Jesus changes his behavior and shows God’s love for everyone. Even if we are not perfect, God loves us. That’s what is so great about God.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 19—August 7, 2011

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel story, Jesus sends the disciples on a boat and there is a great storm. Then Jesus comes walking on the water. First they are afraid, and then Peter tries to walk on the water but gets scared and begins to sink. But Peter calls to Jesus to save him, and, of course, Jesus does save him. Whenever there is danger in our lives, we can call to Jesus, and he is there for us.
