Every good gift comes from God. Receive it. James says, if you want to be religious, take care of the widows and orphans. You will never strategize out of this. They are here--the most vulnerable and oppressed. If you want to be religious, care for them, always. Finally, don't let the world confuse you. There will be dogmas to make this more compli…
 
Welcome back, and welcome some for the first time, all students! We also welcome University Chaplain, Christopher Donald. In today's gospel lesson, we are reminded, just as we are by this altar, that while life is our biggest challenge, it is also our greatest gift! May we all drink from the cup of life. Sermon begins at 17:57.…
 
Though I’m no numerologist, I believe our Gospel reading from Mark 5 (like faith traditions around the world) invites us to pay attention to Numbers. After all, Numbers can be messengers, Angelic notes if you will for like a musical scale, each number has its own vibration and message. Sermon begins at 9:46.…
 
If our motive is about our fears, and not the overall picture of justice--then perhaps we pause. Do I want to align myself with the cause enough to suffer alongside of it? Acting within community, through the mystery of Christ, for solutions for healing and hope. Nicodemus didn't intervene to prevent Christ from dying--though he showed up to claim …
 
In the Bible, angels are present in Genesis, through the New Testament, and in the birth and death of Jesus. Typically not seen wih the naked eye, they are pointing, shepherding, and whispering in the deep silence. How can we best cooperate with our angel? We can no more make our angel leave us, any more than we can make our shadow leave us. Our an…
 
God so loved the world that God made us to steep in the world! We are here to participate in the restration of mind, body, and spirit for all humanity! This passage is less about right belief, and more about right practice! As we seek to follow the way, what is our task? That all know the belovedness of God. What systems, forms of violence, and per…
 
I love that the church goes out to the marketplace particularly around matters of social justice. What this gospel is about is taking the commercialized and ritualized aspects of our consuming and our worship, and turn them over so that we can dig deeper into the truth and find out what it is we want to teach our kids, and take into the world. When…
 
Why did Jesus have the experience he did and then go to the wilderness? We talk a lot in this space about community. Lent is an invitation to remember the gifts of loneliness and community, and its where all the saints before us have traveled. When you start a whole new community--but you have to begin with yourself. This prepares us for the work. …
 
When good things happen, it is natural to want to stay and linger. God responds to this group of people saying that Jesus is the Son of God. This isn't an end to their experience--its instead that mountain highs are provided so we can have valley glows. We see a people go from wanting to app this experience for themselves, to wanting to bring and s…
 
There is a rhythm of what we need to do and how we need to do it on the path of discipleship. A pandemic is no time to quit this. We pivot like ballerinas and we keep going! We cannot quit now. Your rhythm is to actually do the work. Sermon begins at 7:00.بقلم The Rev. Becca Stevens
 
I confess that praise can be challenging, especially when suffering is involved. But a week or so ago my dear friend Tallu Quinn wrote an inspiring reflection on her Caring-Bridge website. Like the Psalms, Tallu's honest speech, in the midst of her grief is a form of praise, transforming me and countless others.…
 
One epiphany opens the door to a thousand more. The disciples had no idea what the cost was going to be to follow Jesus. This week at Thistle Farms, we celebrate that we have 500 beds for women survivors of trafficking and prostitution throughout all of our sister houses across the country. House by house, epiphany by epiphany, they opened. This is…
 
Epiphany reminds us that we chose a lens to see the world and what is holy. The lens for our community this next season, is the lens of the remnant. Remant means, the left overs. It is the rubble of our buildings in Nashville. It is the wreckage of violence, pandemic, the last bits. Our work is not to turn away from the hardest things, but to look …
 
In the beginning was the word, and the word became flesh and dwelt among us. God is no content with God being distant--because it is God's nature to be among us and we see this incarnation in the birth of Christ. This is where God's power comes from and it is where our power can come from. It is a reminder of the life cycle of our body, mind, and s…
 
Advent is a time to wake up and begin participating in the life of the beloved. In Recovery, the 12th Step is the spiritual awakening of having practiced all the eleven other steps. The genius of the 12th Step, is what Jesus challenges us with: wake up! stay awake! be engaged! Sermon begins at 11:15.…
 
What does it mean to dream and love? Christ the Divine Sunday, or Christ the King, is a reminder that our Lord God holds all the corners of the earth, even in the midst of pandemic where we are crying. Coming together and staying apart, is how we love one another. This gospel reminds us that all of us, sheep and goats, we eat the same grass. Sermon…
 
The promise of the feast--the idea of a marriage where joy is poured out, uncorked and rich--is that it leads us to believe that justice is a way of life and a flowing river--a driving force to share all that we have. Sermon begins at 9:40.بقلم The Rev. Becca Stevens
