Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, May 19, 2019

“Love is obviously not just the tender feelings that the word evokes… And as both Jesus’ command to love and the story from the Acts of the Apostles makes clear, it is not enough to love the ones we already like and feel drawn to, the ones we feel kinship and identity with, the ones who fill us automatically with feelings of warmth and tenderness. It isn’t enough to love just the ones who belong to our group, our religion, or state or region or country; the ones who speak our language and get our jokes, understand our cultural references. The love that Jesus calls his disciples us to, the love that the Spirit called Peter to, that love has no boundaries.”

Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, April 28, 2019

“Things have changed. But, how exactly are they different? It’s just too soon to tell. Then again, the problem with the week after Easter is that things may not be different in your world at all… The world is pretty much the same as it ever was; might even be worse. But, even if the world isn’t different, shouldn’t we be?”

“Jesus came to bring the light of God’s love to us. Jesus rose to affirm that that light cannot be extinguished. And now, we, living in a mean world where cynicism, sarcasm and cruelty have become the language of the day, we too are called to witness to the light.”

Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, March 31, 2019

“In this season of Lent, when we pause to examine who we are and how we are living, this story helps us consider: what are the ways we squander love? What are the ways that we lean toward bitterness and insecurity, and fail to see love? And what are the ways we participate in the pursuit of love?”

Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, March 24, 2019

“Repent. It’s not a word one often hears. Certainly not outside of church circles, and here in the progressive world, not even very often in church circles. And we almost never hear it as a command. We don’t hear a lot of pulpit pounding and calls for repentance. But I wonder if we may have given up something valuable when we let go of that word.”

Podcast: The sermon by Rev. Jeanne Randall-Bodman presented on Sunday, March 17, 2019

“We belong to the church, Christ’s body on earth. But we are still both chick and hen, needing protection, but also called to offer protection; and not just to our own, but to all who have made afraid. Most especially in these days, all who have been made afraid by the rise of white supremacy. May we rise up and be that church.”
