To Proclaim The Year Of The Lord's Favor

Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10;Psalm 19;1 Corinthians 12:12-31a; Luke 4:14-21 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church January 27, 2019 –Third Sunday After Epiphany Life is a journey. There are many turns in the path. You can’t see what might be next. Sometimes we are looking from a great height, and other times we have trouble seeing where we are, much less where we are going…much less where we should be going. Through it all, though, we are given the Word as a gift and asked to live it out in all that we see…and all that we say…and all that we are. This is not new. We see this course of events in our reading from way back in Nehemiah’s day this morning. Israel has been defeated by the Assyria

To Each Is Given

Isaiah 62:1-5;Psalm 36:5-10;1 Corinthians 12:1-11; John 2:1-11 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church January 20, 2019 –Second Sunday After Epiphany Each of us carries a gift with us into the world. If character is destiny, our life is determined by how we choose to unwrap that package… whether we choose to unwrap the package. Paul gives us a myriad of ways to do that this morning. Wisdom, knowledge, faith and healing can unleash a tremendous amount of good in this world. Some of us can work miracles, some can foresee the outcome of things before they happen, and some can see what is really happening in any given place and time. At one time, perhaps we can do or have or be one of them,

Jesus Was Baptized Too

Isaiah 46:1-7; Psalm 29; Acts 8:14-17; Luke 3:15-17, 21-22 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church January 13, 2019 –First Sunday After Epiphany Our anthem this morning said it perfectly. We come to the river to pray today. We celebrate the baptism of our Lord, Jesus Christ. We also celebrate our own baptism. It makes our baptism special…or at least it does to me…that Jesus was baptized too. As Moses led Israel through the waters to escape bondage in Egypt…as Joshua led Israel across the Jordan back into the Promised Land…as we passed through the waters of our mother’s womb to pass from life into life…we come again to the waters…to be cleansed …transformed…born again. In the days of the e

The Least Important Of All God's People

Isaiah 60:1-6;Psalm 72:1-7, 10-14;Ephesians 3:1-12; Matthew 2:1-12 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church January 6, 2019 –2nd Sunday of Christmas – Epiphany There is one of those currents that runs through the Bible, from beginning to end: God always seems to choose the one least likely to do what needs to get done. Abraham and Sarah were too old. Jacob was a conniver who got connived against. Moses was a fugitive. Paul persecuted the church before his supposed conversion. Jesus was from the hill country, a bumpkin, a highly improbable savior. He was saved by his obscurity. He was only possibility and vision, not a real human being…until he was.
