“Shaped for this”

Jeremiah 1:4-10

This week, we hear the call story of the prophet Jeremiah. Like Jeremiah, we can all come up with reasons why we are not the ideal person to do God’s work – too young, too old, too overwhelmed, wrong gender, wrong sexual orientation, wrong ability. But God reminds Jeremiah – and us all, that we are just the right ones for the work of love and liberation, because God has formed us, and God is with us in the work. Join us this Sunday as we worship outside at Prospect Park, with Rev. Mollie preaching, and as we are reminded that we are formed by God for a time such as this.

Hebrews 12:1-3
Perhaps you’ve heard the saying, “It’s a marathon not a sprint.” But what if it’s actually a relay race? How do we receive gifts from those who have come before us in faith and how do we pass them to the next generation? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the great cloud of witnesses and passing the baton of faith.

Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-12

“Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen,” the author of the book of Hebrews tells us. But where does faith come from? Does God gift it to us like a warm fuzzy sweater? Do we earn it through conquering life’s challenges? Does it grow from seeds that our parents planted within us? Do we find it like a perfect sand dollar on the beach?  Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the roots and shoots of faith.

Luke 11:1-13
How did you learn how to pray? Did someone teach you? Did you memorize certain prayers? Did you discover prayer on your own? Jesus’s followers asked him to teach them how to pray. It seems that they either didn’t know how or thought there was a “right” way to pray. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on the gift of prayer and how we sometimes make it more complicated than it needs to be.

Luke 10:37-42
In this week’s reading we meet Mary and Martha. These two sisters receive and welcome Jesus into their home. But while Mary is fawning over Jesus’s every word, Martha is left in the kitchen to do all of the work. She asks Jesus to ask Mary to help her. Jesus’s response may surprise you. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on Mary and Martha and finding balance between work and wonder.

1 Kings 9:1-15a
The sounds of summer are in full swing – barbecues, splashing in pools and lakes, kids running around the neighborhoods, crackling of campfires. In the midst of the start of summer, we hear the story of Elijah seeking God’s presence on a mountainside. Elijah, who has experienced God in big and loud ways, now hears God in an unexpected way- in the sound of silence. How do we make space to hear God in obvious and unexpected ways? Join us this Sunday as Rev. Mollie preaches on the sounds of silence and the substance we find in the pause.

Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31
In this week’s reading from Proverbs, we hear a new voice—Woman Wisdom! She stakes her claim at the busiest intersection in town and shouts to the passers-by how she was present with God before creation began. What might Woman Wisdom have to say to us? What might she implore us to shout at the busiest intersections in town? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on bold proclamation and how participating in PrideFest is a critical part of our witness to God’s unconditional love.
