Change causes stress. There is an index that seeks to quantify levels of stress. Prolonged high stress can cause depression and illness. Just to note it has been found in studies that those who worship, pray, exercise and are part of a community have discernibly less stress. So coming to church is good for you! Read the rest of this entry »

November 19, 2017 Peg Weissbrod

The sermon, Use It or Lose It, begins around the 29 minute mark, with music provided by the Cherub Choir, Voices in Bronze, and Sine Nomine.

Before we get into today’s scripture, I want you to keep three things in mind: This scripture passage in Matthew is a parable.

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

You see, I was taught from a very early age that it was more important to think about what I want to say than say it; it was more valuable to listen than to speak. No wonder I spend my day in a hospital listening. No wonder figuring out what I want to say has been a struggle. Read the rest of this entry »

What Do You Care About? ~ John 4: 7-42

March 19, 2017 Peg Weissbrod

Two weeks ago, Ron Schmidt gave a Minute for Mission about caring and told a story about softball team members who carried a player from the opposing team who had just hit the game winning home run, but had injured her leg and couldn’t touch all the bases. Apparently if they had just left her in the dust their team would have won. But placing care and compassion above victory they showed themselves to be leaders; they showed themselves to be individuals that I want to trust. Read the rest of this entry »

Starlight ~ Isaiah 60: 1-6; Matthew 2: 1-12

January 8, 2017 Peg Weissbrod

I saw the new Star Wars movie “Rogue One” over the holidays. If you are into those kind of movies, I recommend it. It’s the mythic battle of good vs. evil Just when the powers of the “dark side” seem certain to win, a person arises whose power and light confounds the darkness. In this movie it is Jin a young woman. Read the rest of this entry »

Letting Go ~ John 12:20-33

March 22, 2015 Peg Weissbrod

Philip and Andrew tell Jesus that some Greeks want to see him. And Jesus knows that NOW his hour has come. There are at least three other times in John’s Gospel where Jesus declares that his time has not yet come, but now Jesus is deeply aware of a change and he turns towards Jerusalem and the final days.
