Beyond Chocolate: Some Simple Ideas for a Deeper Lent.

Lent begins March 1. Lent is a time in the Christian church to reflect on the universal human condition, to consider the ways in which we hurt one another, and to ask for forgiveness. Sometimes asking for forgiveness sets us free in unexpected ways. So, we will begin our Lenten journey with an Ash Wednesday service that includes a traditional "Litany of Penitence" and the imposition of ashes on Mar. 1 @ 11:30 am. All are welcome. Pastor Emily will preach on Sunday about the spirituality of Lent, Gary Brown will lead us on guitar, and we will celebrate the Lord's Supper together. Mar. 5 @ 10 am. All are welcome. During Lent, Christians are called to deepen their spiritual lives through the p

Ash Wednesday Service on March 1 @ 11:30 am

Lent begins on Wednesday March 1. Lent is a time to revisit, renew, and strengthen our Christian faith. Ash Wednesday invites us to explore the mystery at the heart of the gospel that being a Christian means new life in Christ.

"Won't You Be My Neighbor?" Lasagna Dinner

One of the ways Jesus connected with his friends and touched the lives of strangers was by sitting down to a meal with them.

"As You Wish": A Reflection on (Not) Being Perfect.

This sermon, based on Mt. 5:38-48, was preached at Knox Presbyterian church on Feb. 19, 2017 Once upon a time, a young woman named Buttercup, was in love with a farm boy named Westley. When Buttercup asks him to do work around the farm, he always answers “as you wish” but when he’s saying “as you wish”, he really means “I love you”. Do you know this story? It’s The Princess Bride, a famous fairy tale spoof from 1987. In the story, Buttercup realizes she loves Westley, too, and Westley goes off to seek his fortune, so he can marry Buttercup, but he never comes back. Brokenhearted, Buttercup gives up waiting for him, and is forced to accept the evil prince Humperdinck’s marriage proposal. Then

How is the Gospel like a Sandwich?

This sermon was preached at Knox on Feb. 12, 2017 based on Matthew 5:21-37. My stepfather Dave makes the best sandwiches. My family lives in Ohio and whenever they come out to visit, I always ask him to make me a sandwich. My dad treats a sandwich like a meal. He slices tomatoes and onions, and layers it up real nice with cheese and turkey and lettuce. Some mayonnaise. Some mustard. Some Italian dressing. All on good bread. Served with some chips. Pickles, too, if there’s any lurking in the fridge. They are really good sandwiches. I’m usually a lazy sandwich maker. I can layer together some bread and turkey, and it’s fine. I’ll eat it, but it’s not the same as my dad’s juicy sandwich with t

How is a Christian like a Light Bulb?

This sermon was preached at Knox Presbyterian Church on Sunday Feb. 5, 2017. The text for this week: Matthew 5:13-20 There’s a lot about light and lamps in Matthew’s scripture for today. It got me thinking about lights, and then I started noticing how many lights we’re surrounded by everyday. They’re everywhere. I counted the lights in my house and I stopped at one hundred. There’s six lights on just on the coffee maker in the kitchen. Two on the coffee grinder, seven inside the refrigerator, plus the clock, the ceiling, the oven, you get the picture. We have so many lights around us that we are never truly in the dark. We take it for granted that we can hit a switch and the light will come
