A Good Man Is Hard to Find (March 6th, 2019)

Ash Wednesday begins the Lenten season of repentance and renewal. Reformation’s Lenten theme, “Unwound,” is introduced in this sermon from Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21. What if, in our pursuit of goodness, we end up still caught up in ourselves? Between Jesus, Martin Luther, and Flannery O’Connor, we find the ways that Jesus can set us free from our self-preoccupation and give us a life that is open to love and joy.

A Shining Light (March 3rd, 2019)

On this last Sunday before Lent begins, we travel to the mountaintop with Jesus and some of his disciples for the Transfiguration of Our Lord. In the gospel reading from Luke 9:28-36, Jesus shines with a dazzling light. God speaks from a cloud, declaring that this is his Chosen Son. Even as we long for God to speak to us and give us direction for our lives, the Transfiguration encourages us to find hope in Jesus and to step into his light. In this sermon, Pastor Paige gives examples of how every day, we have the opportunity to turn toward Jesus, to walk in faith, and to let his light shine through us. 

When Life's Unfair (February 17th, 2019)

Life is often unfair. There is no way around this sometimes-painful truth. How can we make sense of a loving God and an unfair world? How can we respond faithfully when we get a lousy deal from life? What will we do when it’s other people who get hit with life’s unfairness? In this sermon on 1 Corinthians 15:12-20 and Luke 6:17-26, you will discover an even deeper, and better, unfairness in the universe: the extravagantly unfair goodness of God’s grace.
