This summer we have had a variety of volunteer lay preachers filling the pulpit while I get some work done planning for the fall. I am very grateful for their help and inspiration! However, this week I was back and delivered a sermon based on Luke 4:14-130 and the old gospel hymn "Rank Stranger". I am including our version of the song here since some people might not have heard it. the mic was a little hot and we are still getting used to the single mic arrangement. The second video is the sermon, itself, which settles down after a few seconds.
This was the 2018 Children's Sunday Reflection. The primary reading came from A. Bronson Alcott.
This is the final installment of our Carl Sandburg series. The poem was "Chicago Poet."
This sermon was preached after our Parish Committee retreat and features some of the same themes as the Annual Meeting sermon back in February.
