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
Advent is soon upon us. A new Church Year begins and we listen to strange texts about "the Son of Man coming in clouds." On December 3 Pastor Linda will be preaching on Mark 13:24-37, so we begin a conversation on Central's website with that text by listening to Sarah, Mark and Nathan's reflections on these verses: "watch and pray," "take one bite at a time," and "persistent patience." These bits of advice invite us to enter Advent with anticipation. . . and action. May it be so.
