Sermon – Unraveled: Abraham and Sarah ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

September 20, 2020 Unraveling happens in many ways.  Sometimes, we are unraveled by external forces…take the COVID-19 virus for example or natural disasters.  Sometimes we are unraveled by violence and injustice, sometimes we are unraveled by shame and greed.  Sometimes, we unravel ourselves.  Sometimes we allow ourselves to come unraveled by what we have done or by what we have left undone.  And, sometimes, God is the great “unraveler” – coming into the status quo of our lives and shaking things up in ways that seem mysterious, unsettling, and maybe just plain bizarre.

Sermon – Who Is Jesus? ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

August 23, 2020 “Who do you say that I am?” Jesus asks.  Who is Jesus? That is a question Christians have been seeking to answer –to the world, to each other, to ourselves, ever since Jesus posed it to his disciples! I knew who Jesus was when I was about 7 years old – I knew him as a guy who seemed to walk a lot to see and help people–from the bible stories I was told – and from the European white pictures I would see of him – he seemed to like to wear the color white and had a pet lamb!

Sermon – Weeds and Beans ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

 July 19, 2020 Some of you may remember me sharing that during my high-school years I worked on a farm during the summer months to save money for college. This is where I learned how to milk and birth cows, bale hay, and drive a combine! The farm belonged to a family that were members of our church. The Schroeder’s. Dave and Anita had 8 children and all of them and I had a variety of tasks we were responsible for to make sure the farm ran smoothly!

Sermon – Cup Of Cold Water ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

 June 28, 2020 To better understand today’s gospel, let me share a few brief things. Chapter 10 of Matthew’s gospel is a commissioning speech that Jesus makes to his disciples. Jesus has finished a series of teachings about what it means to be a follower of Jesus and now he is sending them out to do this work themselves. The 3 verses we hear today are the last verses of this commissioning. So, as we think about what Jesus words mean for us today, let me share a couple of stories.
