Melissa speaking at RMC on April 8, 2018

The 10th Commandment-Power, Coveting, Property – June 17, 2018

In the last sermon in her series on the 10 commandments, Melissa focuses on the tenth from Exodus 20:17. To help us understand the concept of “to covet” Melissa has the congregation participate in a little biblical exegesis. She uses 2 Samuel 11:1-13, the story of David and Bathsheba, to explain that coveting has to do with people who have the power and desire to possess. This commandment was–and continues to be–aimed particularly at men. The sermon ends with the congregation partking in communion.

Freed to Follow Jesus – June 10, 2018

Melissa continues her series on what we generally call the ten commandments, found in Exodus 20:1-16. But she intertwines this Old Testament passage with the Gospel reading from Mark 10:17-31, what we typically refer to as the story of the rich young ruler.

Jesus tells this man and the disciples–and us–that the commandments all along have been a form of judgment that actually sets us free.
