"Everyday Epiphanies" - The Rev. Sarah Walker Cleaveland

Posted on January 6, 2019 by Kathy Miller

“See, I have set before you today life and death, blessings and curses. Choose life …” (Deuteronomy 30:19).

Epiphanies are everywhere; they’re just waiting for us to notice them. Every day God sets in our life things that bring us joy and things that bring us irritation. Every day we have experiences that are life-giving, moments that leave us feeling more energized and alive than we did before; and every day we have experiences that are life-draining, moments that leave us exhausted or apathetic. The passage from Deuteronomy and the story of Epiphany call us to pay attention to those moments and to follow the ones that bring us life.

"Giving It All" - Rev. Jennifer Gleichauf

Posted on November 11, 2018 by Kathy Miller

But the widow’s story reminds us that our pledges, our gifts and offerings, are also about having a place where we give enough to remember that there are plenty of things WE can’t do.  That no matter what protection we’ve set up for ourselves, no matter what we build, no matter how hard we work or how good we are, we cannot stop all or even most illness or troubles, tragedies or death.  That no matter what WE do, ultimately, our whole lives are in God’s hands. Whether we have very much or very little, we are in God’s hands.  Whether people think of us well or don’t think of us at all, we are in God’s hands.  Whether we do all the good we can or no good at all.  Scripture reminds us: whether we live or whether we die, we are in God’s hands.

"Choosing to Serve" - Rev. Jennifer Gleichauf

Posted on October 21, 2018 by Kathy Miller

But with hindsight and if we really pay attention to what Jesus says here, it is plain that Jesus didn’t come to teach us how to wield power, even for good. What he really wants the disciples, and us, to understand is that the only way out of the cycle of power abuse is to step out of the power cycle.  The only way to create a world in which power does not run havoc over everyone and everything is to abdicate it and choose service instead. To choose to serve others instead of only our own desires.
