(September 6, 2015) A woman came to Jesus, begging for healing for her child, and she was Syrian… I mean, Syrophoenician. Dare we believe, even in the face of global crisis, that the smallest act of love, the smallest scrap of grace, makes a difference? (Mark 7:24-37)

Sermon: God’s Gardening

waterfall trees 2“God’s Gardening”

(May 5, 2013) The Biblical story is filled with gardens, always conveying humanity’s flourishing– or lack thereof– as we seek to live before God and with one another. Although we may feel like we have been cut off from the blessing and abundance all around us, the story is not complete; the story is complete only when healing and peace and blessing unfold. (Genesis 3:9-12, 17-19, 22-24, Revelation 22:1-5)
