Sermons on “Matthew”

To see Jesus

Brothers and Sisters, grace and peace to you from our risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. AmenCan you see yourself in Mary’s place?A new day is dawning as the sun sheds its light across the horizon. Even in the early light, you feel the lingering darkness of night. You continue to step forward, reminding yourself to keep moving despite your grief. This is the third day since Jesus had died and in the chaos of everything he hadn’t even been given the proper preparation for burial.

In the Lord’s Vineyard

We’ve been reading a lot of Jesus’ parables as we’ve been reading in the gospel of Matthew.  Sometimes the stories make clear sense; sometimes it’s harder to figure out.  The parable he uses today isn’t even his own.  He’s taking a known story and putting a twist on it.  This is a reading from the prophet Isaiah.

I Forgive You

Dear friends in Christ, grace and peace. Amen. Part of what frustrates me about the whole topic of forgiveness is that any conversation about it can quickly descend into a bunch of clichés.I know that clichés have truth in them but I also know they don’t always capture the depth or the implications of what you happen to be dealing with in the moment.
