Post-Sermon Reflection
2010-01-31 by David von Schlichten

I preached on how God's love cares for us and sustains us, even in the face of horrible misfortune. I listed ways God's love does this. Read my sermon at the cafe.

I didn't receive much feedback. A few people said that the sermon was good.

Yours in Christ,

Suicide and Love
2010-01-30 by David von Schlichten

A high school student in our community killed himself two days ago. I will be talking about this in my sermon for Sunday. I will invite people to think about how they deal with depression, about the ways we kill ourselves, figuratively and literally, and, most importantly, about how Christ welcomes all, including outsiders, to be part of the love of God that we are to share with each other. This love is crucial for helping people through crisis.

Thank you to our guest blogger Guy Kent for his thoughtful contributions, which you can enjoy by scrolling down.

Yours in Christ,

The Soloist
2010-01-30 by Stephen Schuette

Saw The Soloist last night.  It's a beautiful film about honoring people and dealing with that fuzziness around our own boundaries that intrudes on them and reveals our own sense of immaturity.  Talk about patience in love!  Maybe it's no coincidence that Paul mentions that first in the list of descriptors of genuine love.  Jamie Foxx is extraordinary too.

Generations
2010-01-28 by David von Schlichten

In Jeremiah 1, Jeremiah is young. In Psalm 71, the psalmist is old. Both receive a voice through Scripture. Both receive blessing from God.

Yours in Christ,
