Sermons: Past and Future
Here you will find links to pages where you can listen to and download the Sunday sermons. It also has links to the Bible reading that will be used for the next week's sermon. You can read the passage, see some comments on it by members of Central, some of whom are Bible scholars but most of whom are lay people who take the scripture seriously. You can make comments yourself, either about the text or in response to the first reflections. To reply to a comment simply move your cursor to the far right side of the comment author's name next to the "Like" heart and the "Reply" button will appear.
This is where you can listen to previous week's sermons or download them. You can put the downloaded files into your MP3 player or phone to listen at your leisure. If you wish to listen on your computer, phone, or tablet click the arrow in to the left of the sermon title. You can also download the sermon for later listening by clicking the "Download" prompt to the right.
A Sermon Text Conversation Worth Joining
As we approach the end of this church year, on November 18, we will be listening for Pastor Linda's sermon from Mark 13:1-8: a challenging text that seems to end with hope, a timely word for these tumultuous times. As we prepare ourselves for that day, I urge you to listen to the reflection from Clarissa, inviting us to check our perspective in order to hear the good news. Find yourself in the conversation on our website.
Worry, Trust, and Wise Women
Every week, I introduce the following week's Sermon Text Conversation found on Central's website, in the hope that you will actually click on the link and read the reflections and consider the upcoming preaching text for yourself as one way to prepare to hear the sermon the following week. Today, I find myself in awe of the wisdom from the two women who wrote a reflection on Matthew 6:25-33 in anticipation of the sermon on November 25. Please go to Central's website and listen to Ann and Gina, two of the many wise women in our congregation. You might even find yourself wanting to make it a habit to listen for the wisdom ( from women, men and youth) each week. Spirit keeps surprising us all, if we listen. Grace and Peace to all.
