“Wilderness Food”

Our scripture for Sunday is Exodus 16:1-21.  The Hebrews are in their third month of the journey toward the Promised Land.  They are hungry and have suddenly forgotten God’s powerful acts that brought them from captivity to freedom.  Times are tough for them and already, people are ready to go back to slavery because they …

“I AM”

This Sunday’s passage is Exodus 2:11-3:22. Moses is now an adult and he is fleeing for his life!  Pharaoh knows what he did.  So, he makes it to Midian and there he meets his future wife and he settles and they have a son. Pretty impressive. But, at the end of chapter two, more time …

“Give”

Matthew 14:13-21 is this Sunday’s scripture and can be found here. Typically, this story is called the “Feeding of the 5,000”, but women and children were also present as we’re told in verse 21, so the number is probably closer to 20,000.  Regardless, that’s a lot of people Jesus feeds in an isolated area.

Remember, the Corinthian Church has many factions.  Some are trying to develop a hierarchy on spiritual gifts (teaching, preaching, praying, etc.).  Yet, the Apostle Paul argues that there is no such thing as a hierarchy.  There are different functions, yes!  There are appropriate times when various …

You Are God’s People

During the Season of Easter, we have been going through 1 Peter.  The Christian’s addressed in this letter are Gentile Christians who live in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia.  Peter calls them “God’s chosen strangers living in the world of the diaspora”.  That is, these converts to Christianity have given up status in the …

Hosanna!

This Sunday is Palm Sunday and our scripture is Matthew 21:1-11. Jesus comes into Jerusalem riding on not one but TWO animals!  A donkey and her colt. The disciples are in the processional and a crowd of people are throwing their clothes and palm branches on the road to pave the way for Jesus.  And …
