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.
Weekly Scripture Conversations
Are you ever curious about the scripture texts that become the foundation for the sermons that Pastor Linda preaches? Every Sunday morning, at 9:00 a.m. a few Central folk gather together to study the Bible together, specifically focusing on the text from which Pastor Linda will be preaching that day. Everyone is welcome to join us.
Engaging the Text in Community
Engaging the text of TASTE and the community
"O taste and see that the LORD is good;
happy are those who take refuge in God." Psalm 34:8
What does it mean to use taste as a means of relating to the Divine?
Surely the sharing of meals enhances community. And paying attention to taste may just lead us to wisdom and call us to do justice. Pastor Linda is inviting us as a congregation to pay attention to our senses as ways into relationship with God and one another. On January 28, she will call us to TASTE the holy and the profane in order to act as Christians called to our senses. Prepare yourself by joining the conversation on our website, begun by Lynette and Kent.
