Lazarus, Come Out!

Ezekiel 37:1-14; Psalm 130; Romans 8:6-11; John 11:1-45 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church March 29, 2019 –Fifth Sunday in Lent The readings read us, again this morning. We are in the third week of not gathering for worship in our sanctuary…and at midnight yesterday morning our Governor issued a directive telling us to shelter in place…to stay home except for essential reasons. Driving to the post office late Friday evening to post a few cards to friends of mine and yours, there was not a soul to be seen walking or driving anywhere. The bustling activity is gone. Jobs are on hold. We are in a place that I am not sure any generation in the history of the world has seen. There have bee

I Was Blind And Now I See

1 Samuel 16:1-13; Psalm 23; Ephesians 5:8-14; John 9:1-41 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church March 22, 2019 – Fourth Sunday in Lent Our world has changed a lot in a week, and certainly in two weeks, but it reveals to us what it was that was underlying our wealth. Our understanding of the world the Baby Boomers built grows deeper… more layered…more clear-eyed. At the same time, the Word remains the same…and it talks to us over the ages. Let us examine our lives in light of the scriptures and reflect it in all we say and do. Let us resist that primeval urge from something in us that wants us to know who to blame. If only someone would have done this or would have done that, the social d

You Have No Bucket, And The Well Is Deep

Exodus 17:1-7; Psalm 95; Romans 5:1-11; John 4:5-15 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church March 15, 2019 – Third Sunday in Lent We are blessed to live in interesting times. The woman at the well lived in interesting times, too. She was a Samaritan, living in a land that respectable Jews looked down on. In fact, her neighbors, fellow Samaritans, may have looked down on her, too. After all, she had been married five times. She was coming to the well in the middle of the day when no one else was there. Maybe they were shunning her. But maybe she had just had bad breaks. Maybe they all died or abandoned her. She had everything to lose when she lost a husband… her place in society…a place to

You Will Be A Blessing

Genesis 12:1-4a; Psalm 121; Romans 4:1-5, 13-17; John 3:1-17 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church March 8, 2019 – Second Sunday in Lent Isn’t it one of those great spiritual coincidences that we should read about the call of Abraham on a Sunday early in Lent when a global epidemic is spreading? The Word calls to us…here and now…from a faraway place, long, long ago. Abraham hears God’s voice speaking to him. “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.” Abraham hears. Abraham obeys, leaving what is familiar…his family…his plans for the future …his country… to go somewhere …for something… for that voice inside us all that calls us to be more
