All Ye That Are Weary

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen May 6, 2018   Scripture: Matthew 11: 28-30 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.” Most of you know that I went to seminary in New Jersey about five years ago, and I served a church in New York City during my time there.

Consider the Rock Badger

By Rev. Chris Jorgensen April 29, 2018 Scripture: Psalm 104: 1-2, 10-12, 16-18, 24 1  Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty, 2  covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent. 10 You make springs gush forth in the valleys; they flow between the hills; 11 they give drink to every beast of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. 12 Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they sing among the branches. 16 The trees of the ...

Live Like You Have Faith

A Sermon by Rev. Chris Jorgensen April 8, 2018 Scripture: Luke 24:13-35    Some days, some weeks, faith is hard to come by. Whether it’s because we are experiencing brokenness or heaviness or despair, or whether it’s because we are just weighed down or overwhelmed by the banality, the sameness, the endless routine of everyday life; some days, some weeks, faith is hard to come by. It is hard to see the Risen Christ in one another. It is hard to recognize, like the poet Gerard Manly Hopkins says, that the “world is charged with the grandeur of God.” This ...
