Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, December 1, 2019

“Today is the first Sunday of the church year, the first Sunday of the season of Advent… and according to tradition, this first Sunday in Advent is the Sunday of Hope. It seems apt in these times of division and anxiety, that we would be searching the scripture, our tradition, our community and our own hearts for sources of hope, for an infusion of the kind of inner strength that hope can give us in confusing times.

Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, November 3, 2019

“Jesus calls us to a community where God’s generosity is mirrored by every member, where all are fed, and sustained and offered mercy. Everyone is welcomed… Jesus calls the church to more than acting differently or seeing the world differently, he calls us almost into a new existence in which God’s generosity benefits the downtrodden; the generosity creates a culture formed and sustained by the mercy of God.”
