Thinking Globally, Acting Locally ... from The Immediate Word | Isaiah 49:1-7 | Psalm 40:1-11 | 1 Corinthians 1:1-9 | Christopher Keating | Beth Herrinton-Hodge |
The prophet Isaiah begins this week’s Old Testament lection with a clarion call to the Israelites: “Listen to me, O coastlands, pay attention, you peoples from far away!” The imagery that phrase immediately evokes is of a coastal lighthouse emitting strong beams of light to help sailors avoid disaster on shoals -- a most appropriate symbol for the light that Christ >> More


The Cost of Cold Hearts ... from The Immediate Word | Isaiah 49:1-7 | Psalm 40:1-11 | 1 Corinthians 1:1-9 | Leah Lonsbury | Dean Feldmeyer |

The brutally cold temperatures that held much of America in its icy grip last week put a major freeze on the activities of everyday life -- not only were schools shut down, but business and travel were also severely impacted.

There is an unwritten law in lines at the local supermarket. The law states that if you change lines you will wait longer.

-- Psalm 40:2

You can listen to this story with the life of David in mind, as the superscription suggests. You can hear David praying these words after he had escaped the exile that Saul had driven him >> More


Epiphany 2/Ordinary Time 2 ... from SermonStudio | Preaching | lectionary | Psalm 40:1-11 | from the book Hear My Voice | James Evans | Stan Purdum |
Psalm 40 is possibly a combination of two psalms. Verses 1-11 are a song of thanksgiving while 12-17 (or possibly 13-17) are a lament. Our lection for today is the thanksgiving portion, and what the psalmist is grateful for is deliverance -- though from what, specifically, we cannot know. Whatever it was, the deliverance so impressed the psalmist that he >> More

Derrick Sanderson

He drew me up from the desolate pit, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.
