The Bible ~ 1 Thessalonians 2: 13; 2 Timothy 3: 16-17

July 1, 2018 Peg Weissbrod

The sermon begins at the 23 minute mark.

One evening last week Lisa Vahey told this story at the meeting of those who volunteer their time to be with Leonor, Adan and Louis Mario as they live with us in Sanctuary. She shared with us that often she takes Adan (who is four) to the Stone Oven on Lee for a cookie. So Adan and Lisa enter Stone Oven and apparently there are two tables filled with Forest Hill members and Adan goes right up and says hello, starts working the crowd as only he can.

The Voice of the Spirit ~ Acts 2: 14-24, 41-42

June 4, 2017 Peg Weissbrod

Dependent and Free! ~ 2 Kings 5:1-14

July 3, 2016 Peg Weissbrod

Happy Independence Day weekend! Nothing says celebration like a good Bible story about a leper! By now you probably know enough about my preaching style to know that I’m going to have to unpack this story. It’s a richly evocative one that invites us to find ourselves and God in the telling.

Prepare the Way ~ Luke 3: 1-6

December 6, 2015 Peg Weissbrod

I come to the task of preaching this morning with a heavy heart. And I want to acknowledge that, because I imagine that you, too, have strong feelings about the violence and chaos that are being unleashed on the world at a terrifying pace. Read the rest of this entry »
