  • Sermon Starters (Easter Sunday 2A)(2020)

    by Stan Mast
    What counts as proof? Peter offers two kinds of proof about Christ’s resurrection in his sermon—Scripture and experience, or what we might more philosophically call revelation and reason, some word from God and some thinking about human experience. In my Seminary days, logical positivism had a death grip on philosophy. It taught that the only meaningful claims were those that could be proven by observation and experimentation. Only if you could see it and test it was it true. A supposedly authoritative word from beyond or above was completely unverifiable, so revelation had no role in establishing the truth of a statement. Logical positivism lost its iron grip on philosophy when it was demonstrated that its claim about the verification principle was itself unprovable by observation and experimentation. Both revelation and reason/experience can help establish the truth of the claim that Jesus rose from the dead, but in the end only the Holy Spirit can cut open a heart and implant the seed of faith.

  • Easter 2A (2017)

    by Doug Bratt
    Some speeches don’t just interest, move or even bore us. They also change the very way we understand things. In his fine book, Lincoln at Gettysburg: The Words That Remade America, Garry Wills claims that Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address did precisely that. In it the President— in just 272 words that took him only three minutes to deliver — transformed our understanding of the Declaration of Independence.
