This Mess

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen September 13, 2020 Video of whole service: Scripture: John 9:1-12 I am so excited to preach about this scripture. This is definitely one of my favorite stories in the gospels. It starts by telling us that Jesus was on the move. He was walking along. As he walked, he sees a man who had been blind since birth.  Jesus’ followers see him, too.

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen September 6, 2020 Video of whole service: Scripture: Luke 12:22-31 I preached on this same scripture in the garden this past Thursday.

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen August 23, 2020 Video of whole worship service: Scripture: Matthew 26:26-29 So, today, I want you all to think back, way back, to the beginning of this global pandemic in March. Remember how surprised we all were, how suddenly everything was totally out of whack, how we were scared and confused about what was going on and what would happen next? Personally, I was struggling. Let me tell you where my head was at. We here at Hanscom Park church, in February 2020, had just had an amazing month. We had our highest in person ...

Amazing Grace in the Mirror

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen August 16, 2020 Video of whole service: I have to tell you I am excited about this sermon series. I think this notion of finding the Sweet Spot of Salvation is really so key to helping us to live a life centered in our faith in God and our love of our neighbor. Now, those of you who were in Worship in the Garden on Thursday got to hear the long version of what the Sweet Spot of Salvation is, but I’m going to give you all the short version since this will be unfolding ...
