An Idle Tale

Sermon podcast from Easter 2019 at St. Paul's UCC in Downers Grove, IL.  Luke 24:1-12. Some believe every word of the Easter Story.  Some are skeptical about parts.  Some don’t believe any of it.  And we all have a place.  A seat at the table.  A voice in the conversation.

Stealing

Palm Sunday sermon from St. Paul's UCC in Downers Grove, IL.  Luke 19:28-40

This scene, and also the scene where Jesus gave a bigoted response to a woman who asked for her daughter to be healed, show just a little more humanity of Jesus. Like it or not. He was human  There are things that Jesus did that can make us uncomfortable -- not just because we’re challenged to do better, but also perhaps because we know not do something Jesus did.
