Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 26—September 30, 2012

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: You all know the song “Jesus Loves Me,” but when I sang it just now with a different tune, you couldn’t sing along with me. The different tune was a stumbling block for you. In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells the disciples not to be a stumbling block to anyone trying to follow God. Jesus calls us to be helpers for others and not stumbling blocks.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 25—September 23, 2012

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells the disciples that he will be killed and rise again, but they didn’t even ask a question. Instead they argued about who would be first among them. So Jesus told them that the last will be first, and the first will be last. When we run a race, it’s important who is first. But now that Jesus has been raised, that doesn’t matter.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 24—September 16, 2012

Preacher: Pastor Angela Freeman
Summary: Today I brought a basket full of crosses, and there are many other crosses around the Nave and in our homes. The cross is not just a decoration. It symbolizes the love of God in Jesus Christ. So, every time you see a cross, you should remember that God loves you.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 23—September 9, 2012

Preacher: Pastor Angela Freeman
Summary: Here we have a rainbow banner. If I ask which color is most important, you might have your preferences, but we need all the colors to have a rainbow. In today’s Gospel there is a question about who is part of the family of God. The rainbow reminds us that all are equally important to God.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 22—September 2, 2012

Preacher: Pastor Angela Freeman
Summary: In today’s Gospel Jesus is talking about washing hands. People had said he was breaking religious law because he didn’t follow the custom of washing his hands before eating. But Jesus said that what is in your heart is more important than what you do. It’s like our liturgy here at church. It’s good to follow tradition not because it’s required but because it brings us closer to God.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 21—August 26, 2012

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: In today’s Gospel, Jesus continues to say that he is the bread of life. Some of the disciples found this hard to understand because they didn’t see who Jesus really was. If we go to look for Jesus here at church, we find this statue of Jesus carrying the cross. We know the statue isn’t really Jesus, but it helps us see who Jesus is. And the bread and wine of communion help us understand that when we eat the bread and drink the wine, Jesus is always with us. It is hard to understand, but through faith we can feel Jesus with us.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 20—August 19, 2012

Preacher: Pastor Angela Freeman
Summary: In today’s Gospel Jesus says that if we eat his bread, we will live forever. If we go over here, we see bread and wine on a table. You know that later in worship, the ushers will bring it up with the offerings to use in communion. This bread and the wine are simple, everyday things, but we believe that in communion they become the presence of Jesus with us forever.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 19—August 12, 2012

Preacher: Pastor Angela Freeman
Summary: You all know about bread. It’s an important food made from grain. In today’s Gospel Jesus says he is the bread of life. We know that old bread gets moldy and is not good any more. But Jesus is using bread as a metaphor to show us that he is bread that brings us eternal life. In Jesus God becomes part of us forever.

Time after Pentecost • Lectionary 18—August 5, 2012

Preacher: Pastor Jeff Lilley
Summary: Many years ago, the people of Israel were slaves in Egypt, and Moses led them to freedom. As the traveled through the wilderness, they were hungry and wanted to go back. So God sent them bread from heaven. Each Sunday we get bread from heaven—the body of Christ. God still feeds us in an amazing way with forgiveness and love through the bread of communion.
