Mother’s Day – May 2022

Luke 13:31-35

Is this really a parable? And what does “mother-love” have to do with either Jesus or salvation?

Who’s My Neighbor?

Luke 10:25-37

Pastor Jenn was sick this weekend. So Barb preached two Messages from her Basket, and Pastor Jenn recorded her sermon from home. This communion Sunday recording is therefore longer than usual, but such good stuff–we hope you’ll listen to all of it!

Today we looked, with Jesus, at the questions, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” and “Who’s my neighbor?” (Turns out they’re related.) We discover that parables work because we’re usually all the characters, one way or another. And also, Jesus Himself is hiding somewhere in them, too.

Luke 1:1-4; Mark 4:33-34

Why do we tell stories? Why are there so many stories in the Bible? Why would Luke, trying to write an orderly account of the life of Jesus, bother to include so many of Jesus’ stories which were, in fact, fiction?

The Other Side of Prayer

Series: Thoughts & Prayers #7

17 April 2022 – Easter Sunday

John 20:1-10, 19-23

Five people publicly commit their lives to Jesus through baptism by immersion. Then we all learned about how prayer can form us from there: After Pausing, Rejoicing, Asking, and Yielding to the love of God, all of life can become a prayer–just as Jesus’ did. (Unlike most Sundays, this week’s audio includes the entire service.)

Baptismal Robes

…are apparently a Baptist thing, although I guess I never thought about it before. Anyway.

Let it be known that this is one tweet whose response I can really get behind…and that I don’t mind continuing to be associated with. I will not be deleting this tweet. So excited for Sunday!

P.S. I think we’re all set on the baptismal robes.

Luke 22:39-53

God plays by His own rules…even when it hurts Him. And He knows what it’s like to hear no.

Exodus 17:8-13 A story about a battle between flesh and blood (the Amalekites against the Israelites) gives us insight into how to handle it when our bullies are NOT flesh and blood.

Mark 10:46-52

“Sometimes I wonder if the reason some of my prayers go unanswered is because I’m asking for the quick fix that will get me off Jesus’ back, rather than the long-term solution that will bring me closer to Him.” –Pastor Jenn

Technologically, this has been the weirdest recording we have ever produced. The audio was inaudible at the beginning of the service. Pastor Jenn’s mic battery died 2/3 of the way through her sermon. Therefore, all that is included here is the Message in a Basket, and the sermon up through the point where the mic died, with a re-preached audio clip attached at the end, with the end of the sermon. Thank you for your grace and patience. Good news! We’re getting new equipment soon. And also batteries.
