May 6, 2018 Peg Weissbrod

John’s sermon, Bide a Wee, begins about 20 minutes into this recording.

Be Transformed! ~ Romans 12:1-2; Mark 1: 9-15

February 18, 2018 Peg Weissbrod

Rev. Lois Annich’s sermon begins around the 28 minute mark.

Another Lenten journey has begun. Over the years I’ve heard some people say that the word “journey” has become something of a cliché, but I confess to personally loving the word, conveying as it does a sense of movement that can be at times meandering and at other times purposeful.

Choose Life! ~ Deuteronomy 30: 15-20

February 12, 2017 Peg Weissbrod

When I was in training to be a yoga teacher, one of my favorite instructors, a medical doctor from Australia, used to tell us the story of “the wall of milk.” On his first visit to the U.S. he went to a grocery store here in Cleveland Heights to buy some milk for his hostess.
