You Can’t Rush the Cattle

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen May 17, 2020 Video of whole service: Scripture: Jeremiah 29:11-14 This scripture is one of my favorites… and speaking of this scripture, I have a confession to make. It’s been a super busy week, and sometimes, during super busy weeks, it gets to be like Wednesday, and I think, “Yikes, I haven’t picked a scripture yet!” So sometimes, I pick one a bit hastily. You might say haphazardly. Or, if we want to reframe it: I just let the Spirit move me. This week, my thought process went like this: “Okay, graduation…graduation…graduation… Surely you know ...

Our True Mother

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen May 10, 2020 Video of whole service: Scripture: Luke 2:41-52 My Saturday morning routine consists of the following: getting up sometime between 7 and 8, making coffee, and plopping down on my couch by 9 AM to watch “The Pioneer Woman” cooking show. Why don’t you give me an emoji if you know “The Pioneer Woman”? How about a “Like” sign, heart, huggy face if you love her. I guess you can use the cry or angry face if you don’t love her.  The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, tapes her show from her ranch in Pawhuska, ...

Let Justice Roll

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen May 3, 2020 Video of full service: Scripture: Amos 5:21-24 Now, I can’t see your faces, but I can imagine what you are thinking. Right up until you heard that scripture, you were thinking “That Pastor Chris… she’s such a nice lady.” Maybe now you are not so sure. Well, friends, those words were from the Prophet Amos – who was neither nice…nor a lady. He is one of the harshest prophets in the bible, arguably the harshest.  Like all prophets, he is working outside the power structures of his society. In fact, Amos came ...

Consider the Rock Badger (Coronavirus Edition)

April 26, 2020 Video of whole worship service: Scripture: Psalm 104: 1-2, 10-12, 16-18, 24 I want to start by telling you all the I am also preaching at the Urban Abbey this morning at 9 AM and 11 AM. I don’t have access to a time turner or teleporter…they actually record their worship on Saturday afternoon, so that’s how it was possible. Their Pastor Debra needed me as a bit of a last minute fill-in, so she said “Yeah, just preach on whatever you were going to at Hanscom Park this week.” So they got rock badgers, too ...

Jesus Shows Up

April 12, 2020 Video of whole service: Scripture: John 20:1-18; John 21:1-14 So Happy Easter, everybody! We are doing Easter right this year because in our scriptures today, we heard about not 1, not 2, but 3 appearances of the post-resurrection Jesus. That’s a whole lot of resurrection! A whole lot – even for Easter! We’ve got the first resurrection appearance to Mary Magdalene in the morning in the garden. The second one is that evening in the room where the disciples were hiding, and the third one is awhile later, back in Galilee. Some commentators guess that it ...
