Sermons

Believe

On Easter Sunday, Rev. Ben calls us to believe — not in a specific interpretation of the resurrection, because there are many — but in the triumph of good over evil, beauty over ugliness, and in our power to change the world.

Irony Explainer

Rev. Talitha preaches about Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, showing it to be an event of great humility instead of triumph, and the ways in which we are called to live in a similar fashion.

And I Was Martha

Many of us can identify with Martha in the story of Lazarus, wondering why God does not prevent bad things from happening. This sermon explores this question and the importance of hope.

Resisting Temptation

Rev. Ben preached on the temptation of Jesus in the desert, relating it to the temptation faced by churches nowadays to pursue three things above all else: financial stability, entertainment/spectacle, and political power.

A Spirituality of Beauty

Rev Ben discusses Matthew 17:1 (the transfiguration of Jesus), drawing out lessons on the need to create beauty in the world, not just in artistic terms, but also by working for justice, acceptance, and peace.

You Are God’s Temple

Rev. Ben discusses Corinthians 3:10 and its call to “be God’s temple”, relating it to the need to recognize God’s presence when we gather, and challenging us to be a faithful, active expression of the divine spirit among us.
