Sermon – You Are Worthy- Pastor Paisley Le Roy

May 1, 2022– I remember so clearly when I began to sense that God was calling me to ministry. It wasn’t Saul’s sudden flash of light, blinding him for days. It wasn’t in the disciples’ miraculous catch of fish that happens right before today’s passage. I was though in wind.  Rushing over the top of a mountain.

Sermon- Life Is God’s Response to Death- Pastor Sarah Rohde

 April 24, 2022 So, here we are.  The week after Easter Sunday. The glorious crescendos of last weekend have subsided a bit.  The gathered crowd is a bit smaller today.  Our Sunday best  clothes that we pulled out last weekend, for maybe the first time in years, are back on the hanger. Church staffs are admittedly still dragging a bit. It is the Sunday after. We have too been to the empty tomb with Mary, and we have joined her proclaiming for ourselves the best news there is, Christ is risen! That life is always God’s response to death.

Sermon – Easter- Pastor Paisley Le Roy

April 17, 2022– The women returned to the disciples to tell what they had found “but these words seemed to them an idle tale and they did not believe them.” I don’t know about you, but I can resonate with the disciple’s disbelief. I can understand how their words would seem like an idle tale. I mean they had just experienced the brutal murder of their friend, their lord, and their teacher. They had all just spent the sabbath in grief. Or rather, in shock by all that had happened. The women had traveled only hours ago to the tomb, carrying spices to complete the burial ritual. Jesus was dead. They had seen it with their own eyes.

Sermon- Palm Sunday- Pastor Sarah Rohde

April 10, 2022 Today is the day where the clashes between Jesus and the world begin to come to a head. You see, on Palm Sunday long ago, there were two processions happening at the same time. One, the Roman governor of Judea, in this case, Pilate, who rode up to Jerusalem from his coastal residence in the west. He would have arrived on a war horse, wearing all of his imperial garb, and he rode through the streets to remind the Jewish pilgrims that Rome demanded their complete loyalty and obedience. And then from the east, another procession. But this one, a man on a donkey, looking ragtag and absurd. People are waving palm branches and singing “Hosanna to the Son of David,” as though he’s a king, and yet he carries no weapons and exudes zero sense of grandeur.
