  • Sermon Starters (Trinity)(C)(2019)

    by Scott Hoezee
    In her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, “Gilead”, Marilynne Robinson shows her narrator, 76-year-old Rev. John Ames, pondering the enormous love he feels for his little 7-year-old son. At one point Rev. Ames writes to his son, “There’s a shimmer on a child’s hair, in the sunlight. There are rainbow colors in it, tiny, soft beams of just the same colors you can see in the dew sometimes. Your hair is straight and dark and your skin is very fair. I suppose you’re not prettier than most children. You’re just a nice-looking boy, a bit slight, well scrubbed and well mannered. All that is fine, but it’s your existence I love you for, mainly. Existence seems to me now the most remarkable thing that could ever be imagined.”...
  • Truth That Catches Us

    by Janet Hunt
    Esther Mae Nesbitt was a veteran of both the 2nd World War and the Korean War. At the age of 30 she enlisted in the Women’s Army Corps as soon as it was formed. During her time in the service she rose to the rank of Master Sergeant. She came to be in charge of the map room for the entire European Theater of Operations. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre (Cross of War) by the French Government — an honor normally reserved, as I understand it, for those who showed heroism in combat. Following 21 years of military service she retired to Sycamore, Illinois, her hometown, and resumed her first love as an artist. Her rendition of “Christ in Gethsemane” hangs in the chapel of our local Methodist Church. I plan to go see it for myself. Esther Mae died young, of cancer, at the age of 58. What is left is a file folder less than an inch thick in the Joiner History Room at our local public library and a beautiful memorial stone in the cemetery behind my house...
  • I'll Tell You When You're Older

    by Camille Cook Murray
    In the book, Letters to a Young Poet, there are ten letters written by the poet Rainer Maria Rilke to a young man about to enter the military. The young man wrote to Rilke looking for guidance in life and a critique of some of his poems. In one of the letters Rilke wrote, "Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart ... Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer."...

He found the congregation warm and welcoming, a little shabby and worn by the vicissitudes of life..." and other illustrations)
  • Community and Relationship

    by Sil Galvan
    I was a 57-year-old real estate developer in 1984 when I was diagnosed with late-stage lymphoma, cancer of the lymphatic system. My doctor told me my chances of recovery were slim. I remember that I spent the days immediately following the diagnosis talking about suicide. I often burst into tears. I had given up and I was sure I was going to die soon. Although I had family and friends, I felt alone. I wouldn't let them be with me. They couldn't understand - they didn't have cancer. They weren't doomed to die. But Marsha, my wife, urged me to try The Wellness Community.

  • He Will Guide You

    by James Kegel
    Perhaps the most famous icon in art history is one written by Andrei Rublev in about 1410. There are three angels around a table. The wings of the angels are gold leaf; the robes of the angels a beautiful blue. In the center of the table there is a chalice and in the chalice a calf's head. The title of the icon is The Holy Trinity and it was painted to illustrate the doctrine we celebrate today. Many scholars consider Rublev's Trinity as the most perfect of all Russian icons and perhaps the most perfect one ever written. The work was created for the abbot of Trinity Monastery, Nikon of Radonezh, the disciple of the famous St. Sergius of Radonezh, a leader of monastic revival in Russia in the late thirteenth century. Henri Nouwen, the great spiritual writer from Notre Dame, notes: "Andrei Rublev painted this icon not only to share the fruits of his own meditation on the mystery of the Holy Spirit but also to offer his fellow monks a way to keep their hearts centered on God while living in the midst of political unrest. The more we look at this holy image with the eyes of faith, the more we come to realize that it is painted not as a lively decoration for a convent church nor as a helpful explanation of a difficult doctrine, but as a holy place to enter and stay within...
  • Sacred Ordinariness

    by Anne Le Bas
    ("Martin was a poor man, who had lost his wife and all his children one by one to disease. Now, in old age, he lived alone in a basement room. His misfortunes had made him bitter and lonely.

  • The Truth of the Triune God

    by Safwat Marzouk
    The Johannine community's anxiety about being orphaned or uprooted reminds me of the experience of the Christian community in Iraq and Syria and the Egyptian workers in Libya, all persecuted by ISIS because they are followers of Jesus. The nun that marked the houses of Christian Iraqis, the families that were forced to leave their homes, the refugee camps that these communities still occupy--all this speaks of the horror they endure.

  • Hearts Broken Open for God's Love

    by Paul Nuechterlein
    Rob Bell‘s latest book, titled What We Talk About When We Talk About God, provides another example of the drastically changing worldview, outlining in a very readable and engaging fashion how science has changed our view of the universe. And he then asks questions that might lead us into fresh ways of understanding God that might resonate better with those newer understandings of science. And among the questions he raises is the one we’ve raised today about Barbara Garcia’s answered prayer. Bell writes, I remember years ago hearing someone tell a dramatic story about something incredible that had happened in his life, and the way he summarized what had happened was “. . . and then God showed up!” It was moving to hear how thrilled he was, but I had one of those “Wait — what?” moments soon afterward. If God showed up, then prior to that, was God somewhere else?
  • Trinity Sunday (C)(2013)

    by Paul O'Reilly
    "In another version of the famous story, St. Patrick is sent to the three sons of the king of Tara who are preparing for war to decide which of them will succeed to their father's throne. And Patrick's point is not only about the nature of God, but about the nature of humanity. They are three shoots of the same branch. They are a family in the same way and for the same reason that God is a family..."

  • Trinity (C)(2001)

    by William Oldland
    Frederick Beuchner suggests we might get a clearer view on the Trinity when we look in a mirror. As we look in the mirror we see ourselves in three lives. The first life we see in the mirror is the one known only to yourself and those to whom you wish to communicate it. This internal life resembles the Father in the Trinity. The second life we see in the mirror is the visible face. The visible face in some measure reflects the inner life. The visible face in the mirror Beuchner compares to the Son in the Trinity. The third life is the invisible power we each have in order to communicate the interior life we have. Through this invisible power we share with others deeply enough so they are involved in our lives. The invisible power within us he compares to the Holy Spirit...
