Sermon- The Bible Is Living Word- Pastor Sarah Rohde

July 3, 2022 As many of you know, one way Lutherans talk about the Bible is that it’s a Living Word. It’s a Living Word because God is alive, and God reveals to us different things at different times. It’s also a Living Word because we are alive, and we live in a world, and we live human lives, that are also constantly changing, and so we come to the words of Scripture, even words we know really well, hearing different things and noticing different words, depending on what is going on in our worlds at the time.

Sermon- Following Jesus- Pastor Sarah Rohde

June 26, 2022 Today’s passage from the gospel of Luke seems to be a text that preachers work hard to avoid, and I totally get why. I was looking online at a page that serves as a hub for preaching resources, and just scrolling through the titles of articles and commentaries that have been written on this text says it all: Jesus the Jerk. No turning back.  Bury the dead or follow Jesus? The reason this text is difficult is because Jesus makes clear his expectations for what it means to follow him, for what it means to enact the kingdom of God, and the way he talks about it here would send most of us running the other direction.
