The Fifth Sunday in Lent, 6 April 2014

Pastor Wes addresses the problem that we have all gotten bound up in "molt" (death) by getting enwrapped in our own religous cocoons of rules or seperation.  Just as Jesus ordered Lazarus to come out of his death stage, Jesus is calling on us to come out of our graves.

Come Out!

The Fourth Sunday in Lent, March 29, 2014

Pastor Wes points out how we naturally want to keep everything in a box that we can control or at least have explanations about.  However, there are times when we can't control everything, and there is no easy explanation.  Pastor Wes points out in those times we simply have to open our eyes to see Jesus, the Good Shepherd leading us.

I was blind, now I see

The first reading for the day: Genesis 12:1-4a

The Gospel reading for the day: John 3:1-17

This week's sermon is by Seminarian Tyler Strom as part of his education requirements.  Seminarian Strom focused on the story of Abram in Genesis and talked about how we all go through Transistions.  Transistions can produce a lot of anxiety, uncertainty.  However, Seminarian Strom encourages us to approach those times with faith
