Gifted, Called & Blessed – Sept. 16, 2018

As a result of some last minute storm-related changes, Melissa and Hans provided a Bible study for today’s message based on Genesis 12:1-9 and Hebrews 11:8-16. Their interactive review, including a discussion of Abram’s blessings, was followed by Sri Mayasandra who shared about his life and current ministry as the Asia regional peace resource coordinator with Mennonite Central Committee.

The service was also live-streamed and the video is available on RMC’s YouTube channel.

The Whole World Has Gone After Him – March 25, 2018

Artwork by Luz Frye of Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey. John 12:9-19 and Zechariah 9:9-13

On this Palm Sunday Melissa told us about the Alexamenos graffito. Due to some technical issues, the beginning of her sermon is cut off.

Jesus isn’t interested in re-imagining the structures or reinforcing nationalism. Instead, the whole world has gone after him, as it says in the Gospel of John. Jesus has come for the world. Liberation isn’t just for Israel or the Jews; it’s for everyone.  That looks like failure in our world. A failure of too much love. Love expanding to those we may not want to be loved.

We’re challenged to take a little time this week to search out our lives to find where we’ve made Jesus too small, where we’ve made something–or someone–unredeemable. Because when we return next week, it will be Easter!
