With lots of love and thanksgiving to Jim and his family. Love you magnificent women!
(June 17, 2012) When Jesus tells the story of the weeds sown into the field of wheat, he is reminding us of one of life’s deepest truths: pain and sorrow are intricately woven into our lives alongside joy and blessing and peace. We cannot pull apart these aspects of living, but have to let them grow together. (Matthew 13:24-35)
This sermon also serves as a tribute to my Rent-a-Dad, Jim Egger, with love.
It draws from a blog post of mine, here.
(June 3, 2012) Like Nicodemus, we wonder at the mystery of Jesus and of communion, and of the places where the human and the Holy collide. Are we ready for our life in Christ to be political and powerful? (John 3:1-17)
Right now, I am unable to upload my sermon from Sunday, 6/3. I’m not sure what the problem is, but I hope to have it online soon.
In the mean time, I am headed out to New England Annual Conference session. You should be able to check for news & updates from the conference here. I don’t believe we will be live-streamed, but if we are I will pass along the link.
And you can of course follow me on Twitter (@pastorbecca), where I will be tweeting the conference with the tags #neumc and #umcac
