Podcast: a reflection for Epiphany by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, January 5, 2020

“Epiphany call us in our corporate life to see clearly the difference between God’s kingdom, God’s realm and the empires of this world; to place our trust and hope not in nations or administrations, but in God. And in our personal lives, it reminds us that WE are not the center of the universe either. Our weekly worship and our daily prayer are reminders that our egos are not the center of THE universe or even of our own private universes. God is.”

Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, December 22, 2019

“We see a rainbow and we remember God’s promise. We see loaves and fishes, and we remember God’s abundance. We see an expectant woman or a little child, and we remember this expectant woman, this child, Emmanuel, for God is with us. This Christmas and every Christmas, we are invited to allow their story to be one of the stories that tell us who we are; one of the stories that reflect us back to ourselves and restore us.”

Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, December 15, 2019

“We can be ready to be surprised by one another, and surprised even as we hear familiar words one more time; ready to respond with action to Mary’s prophetic song of joy sung ahead of time; ready to hear our name called into the dance of the Spirit, to feel ourselves equipped to work for justice, to feed the hungry, to share our wealth with the poor, to let go of our commitment to economic and political systems that are unfair. We can be prepared to sing together our own joy in the vision and the promise of God to be with us and for us.”

Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, December 8, 2019

“I think that to repent is something much more interesting, more life-giving, and more ongoing; something much more engaging and difficult than towing the line and changing our behavior because we are going to be in big trouble if we don’t.”

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. And by hope, we’re not just looking for cheer… we don’t need blind, cockeyed optimism. We need a deep, down deep in the bones sense of security, and a vision. A vision that includes how the world actually is, and how the world may yet be...”
