Harrowing Of Hell

Maundy Thursday 2016: How to Love

March 24, 2016, The Rev. Kate Wesch preaching

Jesus had an incredible way of truly seeing people, never with contempt or disdain. We see it this night, when Jesus meets the disciples’ fear with love, when he confronts Judas’ betrayal, with love. We must never forget that the opposite of love is not anger or hostility but indifference or fear. The opposite of fear is love.

The Miracle of Sharing

July 26, 2015, Emily Linderman preaching

“The feeding of a multitude is told six times in the Gospels—twice in Mark and Matthew, and once each in Luke and John. Long before the Last Supper, Jesus was taking, blessing, breaking, and sharing bread with his disciples and the crowds that followed him. This Gospel story is said to be a miracle or a sign and it’s a miracle or a sign that can be interpreted in many ways. I’m compelled by the interpretations that suggest the feeding of the multitude, the stories of loaves and fishes, are miracles of sharing.”

The Joy of Christ

May 10, 2015, The Rev. Kate Wesch preaching

When you look back on your life someday, what are the things that you will look back on with joy? Seek those things now. Do them more often.
