Stop Doubting and Have Faith!

Acts 5:27-32; Psalm 150; Revelations 1:4-8; John 20:19-31 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church April 28, 2019 –Second Sunday of Easter We celebrated the great day of our faith last week. It was a mountaintop experience. Now we begin to live into it. As they say, ‘After ecstasy, the laundry.’ Our minds were stretched last week. Something that is completely beyond us now confronts us. A new possibility gathers startling testimony around itself and sends it all out as one man is overcome, defeated and crucified. But that is not the end. Women return from the tomb on the morning of the third day. They could not dress Jesus’ body because the tomb was empty and men in white asked why they

Amazed At What Had Happened

Acts 10:34-43; Psalm 118:1-2, 14-24; 1 Corinthians 15:19-26; Luke 24:1-12 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church April 21, 2019 –Easter Things don’t always work out the way we think they should. The long periods without seeing the sun is grimmest part of winter to someone like me who has spent so much of my life on the east side of the mountains. I learned that first year that if there is going to be sunshine at all during the day, it is most likely to come at about 4:00 in the afternoon. So go out about 4:00 and face the sun for a few minutes. A friend told me the animals know this and they do it. It sounds a little off, but it has turned out to be true and it seems to help. We had an

The Lord Has Need Of It

Isaiah 50:4-9a; Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29; Philippians 2:5-11; Luke 19:28-40 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church April 14, 2019 –Palm Sunday We come in like a fire engine, full of hope, lights flashing, bells clanging, sirens blaring…and we go out like the sunset…silently filling the western sky…promising a tomorrow to come…with color. Our individual ministries…and every life is a ministry…take us many places …to school…to work…to a family …to a new town. We cannot see it all at the outset, but there is hope in it. We are constantly being equipped and prepared. They say there is nothing that can prepare you to be President…but it is also true that there is nothing that could have prepared

For Whose Sake I Have Lost All Things

Isaiah 43:16-21; Psalm 126; Philippians 3:4b-14; John 12:1-8 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church April 7, 2019 –Fifth Sunday in Lent Everyone has a God. There is some core belief you are not willing to let go of …some value you will defend and advance in spite of all odds to the contrary …some conception of how the world must be…or must be made to behave… you will not abandon. That is your God. You have probably picked that God unconsciously…at least originally …or subconsciously…and only later do we get a chance to see what we have done, with our conscious mind, the part of our minds that chews on ideas for a while before it swallows them. That is the part of our humanity I want to
