  • Easter 3 B: A Flesh and Bone Resurrection - April 12, 2021 at 2:29 pm
    Luke 24:36b-48 Dear Partner in Preaching, It’s been a while since I’ve been able to post. A combination of my own work as a pastor and preacher at Mount Olivet, trying to navigate re-opening as conditions improve (and then worsen again), and the fact that we have opted for a more narrative approach to the […]
  • Epiphany 5 B: Jesus’ Ministry and Ours - February 1, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    John 1:43-51 Dear Partner in Preaching, There’s a lot of “finding” in John’s quirky account of the calling of Jesus’ disciples. Jesus finds Philip. Philip finds Nathaniel. Philip then tells Nathaniel that they have found Jesus. And then Nathaniel finds (although the word isn’t used here) that Jesus knows a lot more about him than […]
