The One Who Comes In The Name Of The Lord

Isaiah 50:4-9; Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29; Philippians 2:5-11; Mark 11:1-11 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church March 25, 2018 – Palm Sunday My candle burns at both ends; It will not last the night; But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends— It gives a lovely light! We come to the much-anticipated day when Jesus enters Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover and to teach in the Temple. But great expectations don’t always turn out the way we anticipate and our hopes and our history do not always write themselves the way we would do it ourselves. The people greet Jesus warmly. Great Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. God bless the coming kingdom of our ancestor David. They shout Hosannah

Whoever Serves Me

Jeremiah 31:31-34; Psalm 51:1-12; Hebrews 5:5-10; John 12:20-33 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church March 18, 2018 – Fifth Sunday in Lent We come to a pivotal moment in the journey of Christ upon the earth. He was born a Jew and lived as a Jew. His ministry was among the Jews when they had every reason to believe that God had given up on them, was punishing them, and was done with them. Their past was all that they had left. There was no reason to hope that God would rescue them again as they had been rescued in Egypt…by Moses and Aaron, a burning bush and a long sojourn in the wilderness. They concluded they were doomed by their own sin and they would suffer and die as a nation, as

God So Loved The World

Numbers 21:4-9; Psalm 107, 1-3, 17-22; Ephesians 2:1-10; John 3:14-21 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church March 11, 2018 – Fourth Sunday in Lent The story Christians have to tell is filled with power and hope even though we are so small and powerless. The world is so vast and great in comparison to the beautiful corner of it we get to call home. Earth is tiny and insignificant compared to the Universe…our galaxy…our solar system… the Sun…even Jupiter dwarfs us. But when we contemplate what we have, it is enough to serve as a lifetime… and more…of joy; it is worthy of a lifetime…and more… of our most inspired effort. And we are wonders because we are aware and…to some extent…woke to it.

What Sign Can You Show Us?

Exodus 20:1-17; Psalm 19; 1 Corinthians 1:18-25; John 2:13-22 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church March 4, 2018 – Third Sunday in Lent We always want to know. We don’t want to guess. We don’t want to believe anything except what we want to believe. We want to be right. So when we come across something new, if it is outside the parameters of what we have already have concluded, we ask for proof. What sign can you show? We are right, unless there is some good reason for us to change our minds. We only surrender to an abstract notion of an ultimate good…some refer to it as Natural Law…when we have no other choice. It’s like Winston Churchill said, “Americans can always be counted on to
