sermon Reflections

As we encounter Jesus in the gospel, I am reminded over and over just how brave Jesus is.  His willingness to encounter evil face to face, and his deep desire to protect the vulnerable ones around him. . . .  If we could take on two things during this season of Lent, the first one would be to take heart, to put on courage.  The second thing I might suggest to take on in this season would be community.  There is power together.

Rev. David Colby  / Read the Full Sermon “The Hen in the Fox’s House” from March 17, 2019.
