• No Longer Strangers- The Rev. Mike Angell

    Faith, amidst the rhetoric of our world, is more than a hobby. Finding stillness and grounding is about more than what we do with 20 minutes on a Thursday morning or an hour and change on a Sunday. Our faith is how we stay sane in a world with insane priorities.

  • On Dance, the Body, and God - The Rev. Mike Angell

  • Imperfect Leadership- The Rev. Mike Angell

    Let me say at the outset, I can’t tell you what the Bible thinks a particular presidential candidate should or shouldn’t do. The Bible wasn’t written with prophecy about how the Supreme Court should function. If we go to the Bible with questions that specific, we’ll usually be disappointed. But the Bible can tell us a great deal about leadership.

  • On Confidence- The Rev. Paul Hanneman

    Jesus doesn’t ask his disciples to know much. He does as them to do mostly very slow moving things: to listen, to pray to love, to follow, to serve the people around us.

  • The Mustard Seed - The Rev. Mike Angell

    There’s an irony in today’s Gospel lesson, which may be hidden to us. We can take scripture ever so seriously. Even those of us who have left behind the more literalistic readings of our earlier lives, tend to treat the Bible with a certain gravitas.

  • Jesus Goes Home-The Rev. Amanda Taylor-Montoya PhD

    In a troubling passage, Jesus disowns his mother and siblings. Mandy says it is something different to read this after marching in the LGBTQ+ Pride parade, and see all the folks offering "Free Mom Hugs"

  • Jesus and the Sabbath- The Rev. Mike Angell

    I want to spend some time today talking about sabbath, but before we get there, we need to pause. Because discussions about the sabbath in this first century text, they need some cultural translation.

    On Trinity Sunday, what does Nicodemus' wrestling with religious language have to teach us about the nature of our Triune God?

  • Spiritual but not Religous? - The Rev. Mike Angell

    When you say “I’m Spiritual” watch out. It’s not an easier alternative to religion. When you say, “I’m spiritual,” put on your hard hats. Because the Spirit has ideas, ideas about how this world should be: always more embracing, always more just, always more loving. So, go ahead, be Spiritual.

  • Nondual Christianity- The Rev. Mike Angell

    To understand the Ascension, you have to know that much of the Christian tradition is about wisdom, rather than knowledge. The wisdom at the heart of Christianity is a teaching about nondualism.

  • What Does it Mean to Abide? - The Rev. Mike Angell

    What does it mean to abide? What if we found ways in these anxious times, in these times when so many of us are just hanging on, to, instead, hang in there together? What if we chose, instead of grievance, curiosity and embrace?

  • The Good Shepherd- The Rev. Mike Angell

    The image of the shepherd is a radical one, radically different from the image of God so often on offer. If you struggle with the image of “God” on offer in our society, with the idea of “God” so many Christians point to in this country, this morning our Scripture offers the Good Shepherd, a counter-narrative.

  • Our Risen and Wounded Savior- The Rev. Mike Angell

    How many of us spend time and energy hiding our imperfections? How much money and anxiety do we spend masking our bodies, trying to conform to some image of perfection? Jesus is risen with wounds, that we might know in our woundedness, we too will rise. Alleluia.

  • Did you notice the women? -The Rev. Amanda Taylor-Montoya, PhD.

    Palm Sunday takes us from the wild procession to the cold tomb, quite a distance Mother Mandy remarks. And the Passion offers us two visions of discipleship: the men who flee and the women who remain.

  • We Wish to See Jesus - The Rev. Mike Angell

    Can we make the question of the Greeks in John's Gospel the question of our own? Can we say, each time we come to the altar, "we wish to see Jesus?"
