          Easter’s hope is not only of life resurrected after Christ’s death or  the death of loved ones or even ourselves in the hereafter; I believe it is also the profound promise of life - our lives – in the here and now, resurrected from fear filled dead ends and transformed through love forevermore....

          Eleven years ago Palm Sunday fell on April 1st – April Fools’day. We were in the early stages of forming a new church and spent each Sunday visiting different worshipping communities. That morning we visited a congregation on the North side of Chicago. Arriving 20 minutes before the start of worship, big rai...

          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...

          From a practical perspective our table manners say a lot about who we are and what we believe about ourselves and others, love and life.  In our dining rooms and living rooms, coffee shops and lunch counters, at school and work, fellowship hall and especially at the communion table who do we invite?

          Why some people thrive despite life’s challenges, setbacks and tragedies while others become overwhelmed, consumed and trapped by them is a matter of the stories we hear, share, fear and wear in our hearts and through every aspect of our lives.  Author and researcher Brene Brown says that she was shocked by...

          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...
