The Most Loving and Lightest Yoke

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen June 28, 2020 Video of the whole service: Scripture: Matthew 11:28-30 I love this scripture from the Gospel of Matthew. Let’s read it one more time. [Jesus said…] 28 “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Before I went to seminary, almost ten years ago now, my first ministry was volunteering ...

Standing Outside the Tomb

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen June 14, 2020 Video of whole service: Scripture: Matthew 27:55-61 In today’s sermon on mental health, I do want to let you know that we are going to talk about suicidal ideation, self-harm, and violence in this sermon. I wanted to let you know that so you can take care of yourselves and your families in this moment.  Like last week, today’s sermon is inspired by two of Lindsey Madsen’s drawings.

Faithful Friends

by Rev. Chris Jorgensen June 7, 2020 Proverbs 17:17 (CEV) & 1 Thessalonians 5:11,14-22,25-27 The second reading we just heard is from a letter that the Apostle Paul wrote to a church he had planted in a place called Thessalonica.

by Rev. Chris Jorgensen May 31, 2020 Video of whole service: Scripture: Acts 2: 1-8, 12 Thank you, Peter, virtually. Peter is social distancing since he just traveled here from New Jersey. He will be able to come to the church to work with on site with us in about nine days.  You heard Peter speak four languages in that video. English, obviously. He also spoke Swahili and Kikiyu, two languages from his native Kenya. And the fourth one – it was right in the middle – was German, a language Peter learned when he was a missionary in Germany. If ...

Waiting in the Hardest Part

by Rev. Chris Jorgensen May 24, 2020    Video of whole service: Scripture: Acts 1:6-14  In the liturgical calendar, the church calendar, the Feast of the Ascension is 40 days after Easter. That actually was this past Thursday. Today is traditionally celebrated as Ascension Sunday. Now, we don’t always celebrate Ascension Sunday because we tend to be sort of quasi-liturgical in our practice here at Hanscom Park. f We like to celebrate the high holy days and have our decorations reflect the liturgical season (like purple for Lent and red for Pentecost), but we don’t have any liturgical calendar police ...
