Bide a Wee ~ John 15:7-17

May 6, 2018 Peg Weissbrod

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

Several times, when Deanne and I lived in Scotland, we were invited to “Bide a wee.” Stay a little longer – have a wee dram before returning to the city. It was an expression of warm friendship and hospitality. Read the rest of this entry »

Staying Awake ~ Mark 13: 24-37

The morning’s sermon begins just before the 16 minutes mark. Member Mary Ann Breisch’s haunting composition Refugee is sung as the Offertory just before the 31 minute mark (text follows the sermon below.)

Happy New Year! I bet you didn’t see that coming, did you? But you know today’s the first day of the new worship year.

Back in Business ~ Luke 7: 11-17

June 5, 2016 Peg Weissbrod

I don’t doubt for a moment that Jesus brought the son of the widow of Nain back to life. Jesus was reported to be a wonder worker, a healer – and the gospels relate several occasions when Jesus brought a dead person back to life.
