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.

Sermon – Agony and Loss ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

May 31, 2020 Our gospel lesson today takes us into a room full of frightened adults. The fear is palpable and well founded. These stressed out and scared bunch of disciples just witnessed the execution of their leader. A psychologist today might say that they were traumatized and they have quite literally locked themselves into a tight space.

Sermon – Our Eyes are Opened ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

April 26, 2020 When confused and distraught, I often stick out my thumb and hitchhike to Emmaus. Theologian Barbara Brown Taylor calls the road to Emmaus “the road of deep disappointment.”  That phrase especially resonates for me right now as we live through a global pandemic that is restructuring our lives and hopes on a daily or even hourly basis!

Sermon – What Do People Mean When They Say The Bible Is Inspired ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

March 1, 2020 If the Bible isn’t a science book or an instruction manual, then what is it? What do people mean when they say the Bible is inspired? When Rachel Held Evans found herself asking these questions, she began a quest to better understand what the Bible is and how it is meant to be read. What she discovered changed her—and it has changed others who have engaged her writings too!
