WE BELIEVE THAT BLACK LIVES MATTER Get Involved

Radical Prayer ~ Luke 11: 1-13

August 19, 2018 Peg Weissbrod

This morning’s sermon begins just before minute 33.

I’ve been back for two weeks but still the crash of the waves seems near. There is something about the rhythm of a beach that re-arranges my heart, mind and soul. I lose all track of time. Elizabeth Gilbert wrote the popular novel Eat, Pray, Love. When away, I eat, love, pray, run, read, swim, read some more, eat ice cream, help with the puzzle, eat even more – rinse and repeat!

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 »

Change of Mind ~ Romans 12:2

March 11, 2018 Peg Weissbrod

This week’s sermon begins just before the 22 minute mark.

Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God – what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Paul writes that you and I have to change our minds, our way of thinking if we are ever going to align ourselves more fully with what God wants for us, and our world. And change is hard but as I read the other day Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life! Read the rest of this entry »

Every 500 Years Or So ~ Jeremiah 31: 31-34; Romans 3: 19-28

October 29, 2017 Peg Weissbrod

Listen to the entire service online including, about 29 minutes in, Rev. Dr. John C. Lentz Jr.’s sermon Every 500 Years Or So on Jeremiah 31: 31-34 and Romans 3: 19-28.

Welcome to Reformation Sunday. Yes, about every 500 years or so, the church gets all shook up and resettled and so here we are: 500 years ago, Martin Luther, a Roman Catholic priest, put up his “Disputation on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences” (better known as his 95 theses) on the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church door and transformed the world.

March 26, 2017 Peg Weissbrod

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 »

Deuteronomy 30:6-14

July 10, 2016 Peg Weissbrod

Today’s sermon is a story of God’s faithfulness to us across space and time through the words of scripture. To be honest with you, I thought a lot about throwing this sermon in the trash. Read the rest of this entry »

Separation Anxiety ~ Acts 1:1-12

May 8, 2016 Peg Weissbrod

Today’s a great text. The disciples are headed back to Jerusalem. And when you think about it, when you get into this scene, the disciples have to be shaking their heads in disbelief about what just happened: Jesus who had died, who had come back to life, who had been with them for a time, is now gone…and this time, for good. He’s been “beamed up to the Mothership,” so to speak. Read the rest of this entry »
