Post-Sermon Reflection; Verb Tense-Good News
2009-11-02 by David von Schlichten

I proclaimed that part of living like the saints we are through baptism is believing that God is "making all things new." Many of us believe that God will make all things new, but Revelation 21:5 teaches that God is making all things new now, in the present. I tried to motivate people to see God at work in our lives today to make things new, including by empowering us to help with the renewing process. You can read the sermon at the Sermon Feedback Cafe.

I did not receive comments on the sermon from parishioners.

Yours in Christ,

"Lectionary Homiletics" Highlight
2009-10-29 by David von Schlichten

Luke Bouman in "Theological Themes" underlines that All Saints Day is, among other things, an Easter celebration, a sacramental celebration, and an eschatological celebration. Thank you, Luke, for highlighting these themes. The day is multivalent and liminal, indeed.

Hearing
2009-10-28 by Kris Bjerke-Ulliman

What if Lazarus had not heard? What if he thought death was the last word? We are blessed that God has a way of breaking down our tombs (sometimes over many years) and helping us see God's power to call us out of....and into life!



Tombs and Unbinding
2009-10-28 by David von Schlichten

I am thinking of John 11, this Sunday's gospel. Jesus calls Lazarus out of the tomb and then calls others to unbind him and let him go.

What tombs does Jesus call us out of? What tombs do we hide in?

How are we to unbind each other and let each other go?

Post your thoughts!

Yours in Christ,
