Sermons

Seekers recognizes that any member of the community may be called upon by God to give us the Word, and thus we have an open pulpit with a different preacher each week. Sermons preached at Seekers, as well as sermons preached by Seekers at other churches or events, are posted here, beginning with the most recent.

Mary E. Hunt: It Takes So Little To Be Prophetic

February 11, 1996

You might think that mine is a cynical, inside-the-Beltway approach if ever you’ve heard one. But I want to take very seriously your ongoing exploration of prophecy by suggesting that unfortunately it is not all that difficult to be prophetic these days. More’s the pity.

 

Pat Conover: Anger at Injustice

January 28, 1996

These are the verses following the lectionary selected verses. I picked them because they are relevant to the theme of this sermon, but also to make the point that these kinds of verses are often left out because they deal with anger.

 

Deborah Sokolove: Considering Incarnation

December 31, 1995

The story of escape to and return from Egypt echoes the tale of Joseph going down into Egypt, and Moses leading the Israelites out again. It is also a foreshadowing of the connection between Jesus and the Passover sacrifice, which is made more explicit at the end of the Gospel.

 

Ronald Arms: A Gentle, Skillful Power

November 12, 1995

Once upon a time there was a man who lived alone in his apartment. When he got home from his day of work, the most frightening minutes of all were those spent unlocking the four locks on his door. The main lock was especially costly and had quite a special key. Once inside, he re-fastened the four locks, then pushed home the two bolts, and finally attached the chain. Safe inside, he made his supper and then watched television. Whether he watched news or movies, it was the same — war, murder, rape and robbery. He kept the lights low and the heavy curtains drawn. It was a dark apartment.
