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.”

Liberating Words:

Isaiah 55: 1-9
Luke 13: 1-9

“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.”

“By their definition, mountaintop moments, these events, do not go on forever. We come down from the mountain, or back into the shore, the musical piece, the class we were teaching, the painting we were creating, the work we were doing in that state of perfect flow; all of them come to their end. And then, what?”

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

“Now, perhaps many of you already discipline yourselves to step away from the clamor of the world, to turn off the TV, turn down the radio, silence your cell phone, and close your laptop. Maybe you know already that spending time, even a few precious moments a day, outside in a place where the dominate sounds are not created by humans can be soul renewing. Maybe you already order your lives with pauses for silence woven through the day’s needs, the day’s joys and the day’s worries. Maybe you know already that the voices of other people cannot be the only measure by which you mark your way forward through life. But, I often forget. And this week’s story of Jesus being lauded and then derided in his home town, and then simply walking through them and going on his way, was a helpful reminder to me.”

Liberating Words:

Luke 4: 21-30
