Mark 6:1-13 - Rev. Jennifer Gleichauf

Posted on July 8, 2018 by Kathy Miller

Sometimes we become aware of our complacency and decide to make a change.  Often our first impulse is to make an external change so we go looking for a new church. Our first instinct is to assume our complacency is caused by something outside of ourselves.  We want it to be that the preacher is boring (sometimes that’s true) or the music isn’t moving us (sometimes that’s true) or the church isn’t doing the kind of mission we think is important (sometimes true as well) or we just don’t fit in with the other people at that church (unfortunately some churches make people feel that way).  And so, whatever it is, we decide another church will be able to fix it and reignite our passion.  And sometimes a new place or new people can do that for us, but eventually they will become familiar too.  So, it’s worth asking: is our complacency really caused by the external or if it is possible we need to turn internally instead. Almost always the harder choice, because then we ask questions like: have I stopped asking God to shake things up or stopped listening for how God is asking me to change or been ignoring messages God is sending to me about digging deeper and asking harder questions about how I’m living my life.

"Boat People" - Rev. Jennifer Gleichauf

Posted on June 24, 2018 by Kathy Miller

....Then, and now, Jesus’ teachings are meant to invite us to think deeply about how to be in the world and how to treat one another. And hopefully, these teachings lead us to engage with each other to grow and deepen our understanding of our faith in connection with even the most difficult or hot button topics while also being caring, loving, honest and faithful to one another....

....But, how else can we be a refuge?  How else can we help each other to choose faith over fear. I’d encourage us to make sure we talk about things which often get swept under the rug, like mental illness, depression, suicide, drug and alcohol addiction, divorce, abuse and other topics which can be uncomfortable, but if we don’t talk about these things here, where can we talk about them?  If we don’t tell one another about the storms in our lives, how can we support each other well?  How can people know this is a place where they will be safe and accepted and loved if all they see are people who seem to have never had a storm in their own life?....
