I am more and more convinced that most congregations die from a staggering lack of imagination. Let's change that. Let's imagine a creative future with God and each other together. Drop me a line on email or leave a comment if you have thoughts on God, Jesus, congregations, the church or whatever.... I look forward to our conversations.

Sometimes a sermon is a just a joke

What do you want to get out of a sermon? If you have to hear one, what would you want to get from a sermon? Do you want to learn something? Do you want to be moved in your faith? Do you want to feel good about yourself? What might you look for?

I look for a way to  an idea about what God might be doing in the world? What kind of things does God find interesting? How does God behave? I'm always interested in this quest.

So in this sermon we see how God is NOT working or what does NOT interest God. God is not about ritual and having to do things in order for God to love us. God loves us, and that changes us. Sometimes it's a simple as that.

Here's a sermon: did you get what you wanted from it?

May your tables be full and your conversations be true.
