          Perhaps it goes without saying, however we are living in a time when our word is increasingly divided, our nation is fragmented and our communities falling apart.  All the technology that connects us makes it easier and easier for us to choose the programing, the kind of new and the information with which we...

          As our country, communities and world become increasingly broken, fragmented and divided how might we respond to the fear and violence, extreme poverty and prejudice, hot button issues and knee jerk reactions how are we to respond to the questions, challenges and crises we see? And for a community such as  o...

          From the second letter of Corinthians, hear this powerful affirmation: no matter how filled with doubt, uncertainty, or fear you may be or feel; no matter how misunderstood or persecuted you may feel; no matter how afflicted in mind, body or spirit you may be; You have everything you need to live joyfully, p...

          Change, new beginnings are rarely easy, are they? Every Christmas we hear the story of Jesus born in bad conditions with his Mom and Dad by his crib, surrounded by animals, shepherds and a multitude of angels. Then there’s that incredible star that is reported to have been seen by Wise men or Kings that led...

In honor of Veterans Day yesterday, please hear this prayer of remembrance. 

Remembering is our responsibility, O God. We remember women and men of the armed forces who suffer trauma and disabilities from war.

We remember the families of military personnel who wait, and who deal with the effects of war on their loved on...

          Ever wonder why God wouldn’t let Moses see God’s face in Exodus 33? Why would Moses die if he saw God’s face? What would be wrong with that? God showed God’s self to Adam & Eve, right? This is one of those weird biblical mysteries that no one can properly answer because we are taught that God can do anything...

          This morning’s Scripture from Genesis 45 is one of great wonder. Why were his brothers so dismayed to see Joseph? Verse 3 Joseph said to his brothers, “I am Joseph. Is my father still alive?” But his brothers could not answer him, so dismayed were they at his presence. Joseph was sobbing while he said these...

         “4 But when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably to him.” This is how the 4th verse of the reading for this morning begins, with a description of one of the basest and tragically most natural of emotions, jealousy. A man named I...

Let’s begin the message with a BREATH prayer to help us prepare for God’s word to reach us:

Breathing in: O Lord, you have searched me
Breathing out: and you know me

(Repeat 3X)

          The other day I went to hike at the Broad Meadow Brook Audubon Sanctuary right here in Worcester. It’s a wonderful place, makes you f...

          So happy to be with you this Easter Sunday morning. It is a day of joy, yet somehow one cannot help feeling sad for Mary Magdalene while reading this Easter passage from the Gospel of John. It’s so dramatic, even cinematic how she discovers the empty tomb where Jesus was lain after the Crucifixion. It was an...
