The wisdom of God turns the wisdom of the world on its head. The wisdom of God is embodied in Jesus and in a community that stands with those whose backs are up against a wall – in ways of living that lead to more life for all people.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
On Labor Day weekend, we share a conversation about work in the time of pandemic -- wisdom at the intersection of work and our life of faith.על ידי Panel: Cheryl Prowell, Vivian Volz, Scott Clark
 
In Wisdom, God is present with us in the questions, in the struggle, in the real stuff of life – helping us find ways of living that lead to more life. The beginning of wisdom is knowing that we know not, and listening with our whole heart – our whole selves – for the steadfast, loving presence of God, walking with us always into life.…
 
The Welcoming Body of Christ works for the freedom of all bodies so that, individually and together, we can all be all that we are created to be, in love. The body of Christ is not complete until all bodies are free.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
In the rhythm of all our coming and going, in our gathering and going out and gathering again, Jesus says: “I am the bread of life – I will always welcome you in. Trust into me.” Moving forward together, we act in vulnerability and courage in the midst of the unknown; we experience authenticity; and we build trust.…
 
The welcome we return to God must be as loving and liberating as the welcome we have received – a welcome that names and dismantles every system that holds anyone anywhere down, a welcome that leaves no one behind, a welcome that sets the whole world free.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
Jesus rejects inhospitality, welcomes everyone, and insists that we do too – through the spiritual practice of hospitality. The practice of hospitality invites us to approach every encounter (in our families, church, community, and nation) with a commitment to welcome: What are the barriers here? What does hospitality require of us?…
 
God’s own life is life lived in community – in community and mutuality – reaching out to us, and inviting us and the whole world in. Our life in Christ is life in community, reaching out to the world with Christ's healing touch in our hands.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
At Pentecost, in a moment of shared witnessing, we find the life of Christ alive in us. Moments of shared witnessing are not just about what the audience sees and hears; they are also about the story we then tell – the lives we live – the song we sing.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
In stories of sharing broiled fish and cinnamon toast, we see this: Resurrection is an everyday, embodied experience of the Risen Christ – embodied in us. Witnesses are those who see and go out and live what they have learned and loved, for the blessing of the whole world.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
Resurrection opens up the power of life to overturn death and its forces, and the choice to center ourselves in that reality. To live lives of resurrection hope that pour compassion and love and justice and forgiveness and healing into all the world’s wounds.על ידי Rev. Dr. Aimee Moiso
 
In Resurrection, the Risen Christ blesses us with life, and invites us to go and tell the story with the lives we live. When the Gospel of Mark tells the story of Resurrection – in language spare and startling – “He is risen! He’s gone ahead to meet you. Just like he said. Go and tell the others” – it invites us to write ourselves into the narrativ…
 
In Palm Sunday, the cross, and the empty tomb, Jesus blesses the world by declaring a new reality with his body. This is what Jesus is doing on Palm Sunday, inviting us with his body, gathered with our bodies, to proclaim the Good News he has come to make real.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
As we listen to the lament of Psalm 22, of Jesus from the cross, of the prayers of Celtic spirituality, and of our own world, we find our way to this blessing: God blesses us with tears to shed with each other, the presence of God in the midst of our suffering.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
Rev. Allie Utley leads us in a reflection on the troubling image of the cross and invites us to consider this: In the suffering of the cross, God knows us, intimately, the whole of our human experience, including our sorrow and pain.על ידי Rev. Allie Utley
 
The Word becomes flesh as Jesus calls us into community – and we call each other – “Together We Serve.” The Word becomes flesh not at the centers of power – but in the vibrant pulse of life at the margins – in everyday folk and our everyday lives – in this Jesus of Nazareth, in this community of mutuality.…
 
Grace is God’s unconditional love for the whole world. Grace insists that we say true things about systems of oppression and our complicity in those systems, and then calls us to change. Grace then allows those who have participated in the harm to participate in the healing.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
On the first Sunday of a new year, we turn to the beginning of the Gospel of John, affirming that God's Word becomes flesh in the midst of us. Always, as we begin again, Christ manifests God’s Word in us.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
This Sunday, we begin our Advent theme: "Light Dawns on a Weary World." In the dawning of Christ’s new day, Jesus invites us to keep on watching – watching out for ourselves and each other, watching for what God is doing in the world, watching for the work that is ours to do.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
The kingdom of God is like an ICU nurse. Christ the King stands in power and tender mercy with those whose backs are up against the wall, and brings about Christ’s reign of justice, healing, and peace.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
Amid the storm, what we are doing here is building the house of our lives on the sure and steady foundation of God’s love for us in Jesus Christ. Hope is what we do every morning when we rise with the day and say, “We can do this.”על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
In the communion of the saints, our memory of life with God yesterday points us to where and how we might find our way to life today and tomorrow – not just for us, but for our children and our grandchildren, and for all the generations yet to come.על ידי Rev. Scott Clark
 
The Pharisees and Herodians try to trap Jesus with a question about paying taxes to the Emperor. Jesus surprises us with a life-giving both/and when we’re preparing for an artificial yes or no. We follow One who sees the trap coming, unmasks the hypocrisy, and still sends the questioners away with new things to think about. The Resurrected One has …
 
In an election year, we stand at the intersection of faith and public life, and consider the danger of tyranny and systemic racism, the promise of the right to vote, efforts to suppress that right, and our power to make a difference. In God’s sovereignty, God honors our agency to choose, inviting and empowering us to participate in God’s re-making …
