July 23rd - “The Problem with Weeds”

posted Mar 27, 2017, 11:56 AM by Ken Schmidt   [ updated Jul 2, 2017, 7:11 PM ]

Worship Theme: What do you do with weeds?  How can you be sure that you are pulling the right ones?  This image of God’s Kingdom provokes us to consider another take on how we view the “opposition”.

Scripture Texts:  Psalm 86:11-17; Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43

posted Sep 12, 2014, 9:40 PM by Ken Schmidt   [ updated Jul 2, 2017, 7:22 PM ]

Worship Theme: The question from Jesus is unexpected.  “What do you have to eat?” seems a silly query in the face of the hunger of the crowd.  But it is a beginning.  And it is where the work of the Kingdom begins.

Scripture Texts:  Isaiah 55:1-5; Matthew 14:13-21

August 20th - "Dogfood?"

posted Sep 12, 2014, 9:18 PM by Ken Schmidt   [ updated Jul 2, 2017, 7:25 PM ]

Worship Theme: In a day when our pets eat better than we do, this exchange Jesus has with the Canaanite woman may puzzle us.  But her persistence is unmistakable.  And Jesus’ response, unforgettable.

Scripture Texts:  Isaiah 56:1, 6-8; Matthew 15: 21-28

August 27th - “Keys to the Car and the Kingdom”

posted Sep 12, 2014, 9:18 PM by Ken Schmidt   [ updated Jul 2, 2017, 7:27 PM ]

Worship Theme: It used to be that getting the keys was a big deal!  A rite of passage, and a risk of responsibility for the whole family.  For the Kingdom of God, it still is.  What does it mean for us to hold the keys that Jesus places in our hands?

Scripture Texts:  Isaiah 51:1-6; Matthew 16:13-20
