Should Not This Person Be Set Free?

Jeremiah 1:4-10;Psalm 71:1-6; Hebrews 12:18-29;Luke 13:10-17 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church August 25, 2019 –Eleventh Sunday After Pentecost We’ve come a long way since Henry Ford told America they could have a brand new Model T in any color so long as it was black. We have too many choices these days. Now we have Neapolitan ice cream, 50 flavors of milkshakes and gas, electric and hybrid cars. Soon they will be driving themselves.We have so many choices that it’s hard for us to make up our minds between good choices. Our great plight…woe is us…is how we are going to get all the things on our bucket list done. Oh, the anxiety that creates! There is a famous experiment they did wi

Such A Cloud Of Witnesses

Isaiah 5:1-7;Psalm 80:1-2, 8-9; Hebrews 11:29-12:2;Luke 12:49-56 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church August 18, 2019 –Tenth Sunday After Pentecost We continue last week’s meditation about faith this morning. It is appropriate …maybe even necessary…that we ponder the question of faith for more than one Sunday…or one week. This is one of those things that you are always in touch with. You do everything by faith…even in your secular lives. You do not do it in an instant. You do faith over time. It is your spiritual DNA.

He was the Professor of Religious Studies at Montana State University and the book was about how we, as humans, relate to…or interface with, reality. A good example of the concept, I think, is when you are trying to remember someone’s name. The harder you try to do it…the harder you try to squeeze that out of what you know…the harder it is to remember it.

Christ Is All And In All

Hosea 11:1-11;Psalm 107:1-9, 43; Colossians 3:1-11;Luke 12:13-21 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church August 4, 2019 –Eighth Sunday After Pentecost Hosea speaks an oracle for us. He is channeling the thoughts of God, his lips speaks God’s words, and this is one of the best-known passages in our Hebrew Bible. It is reminiscent of the soliloquy of a young lover pondering what they should do. They pick a flower and pull the petals off one at a time. “She loves me. She loves me not. She loves me. She loves me not.” But the narrative speaks more as a parent contemplating their child and it is a bit turned around. It goes more like “I love them. I love them not. I love them. I love them not
