March 13, 2022 – Second Sunday in Lent worship service

Although Paul’s devotion to Christ has caused him to be persecuted, he does not regret the course he has taken. Writing from prison, he expresses confidence in a glorious future and encourages other Christians to follow in his footsteps. He seeks to rally the believers in Philippi to stand firm in their faith in spite of persecution from the wider society as well as internal conflicts and false teachers in the church itself. “Stand firm in the Lord.” That’s his rallying cry. That’s his challenge to the Philippian church 2000+ years ago, and it’s his challenge to us today. “Stand firm in the Lord.”

March 6, 2022 – First Sunday in Lent worship service

When Jesus was in the wilderness for forty days, he may not have had the company of friends and family surrounding him, but he was not alone. Every word he spoke to address the temptations of the devil came from Deuteronomy. Through these familiar words, Jesus was abe to summon up the presence of his ancestors and the voice of God that spoke to them. What words are written on your heart? In times of crisis, what words find their way through the ages to bring you strength? Are you prepared for the wilderness times? Can you trust your pain to God? Can you focus on your eternal purpose more than on your immediate circumstances? Ask God to prepare you.

March 2, 2022 – Ash Wednesday worship service

Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return. Today is a day for remembering that we are simply creatures, not the Creator. We remember those we love who have returned to the dust. We remember our place in the large arc of history. We remember that we are frail and small and that the world does not revolve around us. It’s a solemn day to remember. But that remembering also leads us to freedom. Freedom comes to God’s people in the most unlikely of places: in the desert, in the wilderness, in exile, under an oppressive empire, on the cross, in the homes of scared disciples locked away. Freedom arrives in the ordinary things of water, word, bread and wine and today in ashes.
