         The smell of ashes.  We’ve had it in our nostrils more than we’d like this summer.

Sunday, September 3, 2017
Scripture: Psalm 100; Luke 17:20-24; Hebrews 11:1-3
Sermon: The Kingdom of God: Within
Elyse Fairweather, guest sermonizer
Their feathers shimmer and glint in the sunlight – green hues sparkle as they bob and flit. The hummingbirds are delighting in their meal – freshly filled feeders. It’s a simple sugar and water mixture, but to the hummingbirds it is life.
This summer we have been focusing on the Kingdom of God. We have been studying the parables – learning from the words […]

Light, Silence, Connection

Sermon:  LIGHT
Texts:  Genesis 1:3, 2 Corinthians 4-6
Date:  August 27, 2017
Anne Hopkins, Eagle Harbor Congregational Church
 
The thought I’d like to share with you is LIGHT.  The power of LIGHT.
In Genesis 1:3 “And God said, “let there be light.” And there was light.
 
One night when I was restless and anxious, I decided to meditate to try to settle down to sleep.  And the message ‘IT’S BETTER TO LIGHT ONE CANDLE THAN CURSE THE DARKNESS” came to me.  Though I hadn’t thought about […]

         Jesus’ disciples asked him, “When is the kingdom going to come?”  Good question, don’t you think?  It has been a very common speculative activity of various groups of Christians through the ages to try to answer that question of “When?”  Some have searched for signs in scripture and signs of the […]

Sermon: Logic Outdone by Joy

         I like to think that the Pharisees and the scribes recognized Jesus’s great charisma like everybody else.  They knew him to be quick-witted and articulate, a great storyteller.  They could sense his intimate connection with God.  They probably wished they could persuade him join them; I bet they would have liked to harness his energy and popularity for their cause of keeping people faithful.  […]

Kingdom of God: Like a Flashlight

Sunday, July 23, 2017
Guest Sermonizer: Taryn Oestreich
Scripture Readings: John 1:1-4 and John 14:15-21
For me a flashlight is a lot like my faith…it’s a very useful – a helpful tool I keep in several rooms in my house, my backpack, my car and even in my desk at my office.
Once in a while I need to recharge the power source…sometimes I wish it would shine brighter (or maybe the issue is with my eyesight?) and it has served to both help […]
