Easter Sunday 4.16

He is risen!  He is risen indeed! We sing this song most Easter Sundays at Wayne Presbyterian Church.  When the hymn starts, I feel the power of God and the miracle that is Easter.  Also, as I've told people before, my very favorite part of the Easter Sunday service is when one of the Dudt children (now young adults) crash the cymbals together in this hymn.  It's an incredible exclamation point, just as the resurrection is.  Hallelujah, he is risen! ...

Lent 4.13

Today is Maundy Thursday.  On this day we remember Jesus' last supper with his disciples and how he was betrayed.  We have a powerful worship service tonight at 7:30 and hope you'll join us. Below is a prayer written by the Rev. Teri Peterson, a seminary classmate of mine.  Confession for Maundy Thursday (inspired by Matthew 26:22, Mark 14:19, Luke 22:22)   Surely not I, Lord? Surely not us? Surely not. Surely I am not the one who will betray you. Surely... Read More

Lent 4.9

Today is Palm Sunday and is the beginning of Holy Week.  We read this story from the Bible every year, but I challenge you to read it with fresh eyes today.  See what God may want you to notice today.  See if there is anything new or surprising that you find upon this encounter with the text.    Matthew 21:1-11 When they had come near Jerusalem and had reached Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the...

Lent 4.2

Today is the fifth Sunday in Lent.  Casey Thompson will be preaching on this scripture from the Gospel of John. Six days before the Passover Jesus came to Bethany, the home of Lazarus, whom he had raised from the dead. There they gave a dinner for him. Martha served, and Lazarus was one of those at the table with him.Mary took a pound of costly perfume made of pure nard, anointed Jesus’ feet, and wiped them with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance of the... Read More

Lent 3.26

Today is the fourth Sunday in Lent.  The scripture for today is the story of a blind man who is healed by Jesus.  It comes from John 9 and is only found in the gospel of John.  One of the things I love about this passage is the way the man grows in his knowledge and faith about who Jesus is.  He doesn't come to full faith all at once, but slowly, over time, understands the truth about the Christ and how he has been fully healed and fully set free.   John 9:1-38 ...

Lent 3.25

Nadia Bolz-Weber is a super sassy and faithful pastor at a church somewhat like Broad Street Ministries.  She preached this sermon last week on the Woman at the Well.  In it she says, "Sometimes being seen is painful, even if it's what we want more than anything else in the world." When we seek repentance, we are allowing ourselves to be seen by God.  We are seen fully and completely.  We are vulnerable and laid bare.  And we trust that when we show... Read More
