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.

A World at Peace

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, grace and peace to you from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. AmenWhen we think of peaceful quiet and calm, we might think of a wonderful image like that scene on the front of your bulletin.Calm waters, quiet noises of nature, stillness…

Whatever is Right

Devoted to God

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, grace and peace to you from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

Who or what is the master of your life?

What in your life demands greatest devotion? What demands your devoted time, thought, and efforts?

Away with you, Satan

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, grace and peace to you from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen. “Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.” Jesus was led by the Spirit to be tempted. In the Lord’s Prayer (that Jesus teaches his disciples) we pray that God will lead us NOT into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

God WITH Us

Dear friends in Christ, grace and peace to you and merry Christmas! Wow… that was a long list of names. Did you stay awake?
At times I’ve been tempted to skip over these genealogy sections, but there is something rich there. This is how Matthew introduces Jesus to the readers and there is rich history. Other stories from Star Wars to Lord of the Rings look to family histories.

Do Not Worry

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, grace and peace to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Do not worry… Man, that is a tough one for me. How about you?

There is seemingly so much to worry about, isn’t there? Usually, being told NOT to worry doesn’t seem to help much either.

It is helpful for me to look at this reading and being told NOT to worry in the same way parents are instructed to navigate behaviors with toddlers. (Yes, I am comparing myself to a toddler.)

Expect God

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, grace and peace to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

This healing does not go as expected.

Naaman, this brief character of the Old Testament, gets mentioned in Luke 4 as Jesus is stating how prophets are not accepted in their hometowns. Naaman was as outsider, yet this is the one individual Elisha cures of leprosy. Naaman then worships the Lord and Elisha forgives his sins, sending him in peace.
