John 17:1-11 – Jesus Prays to be Glorified – Jesus prays for those who belong to him – for us! He asks the Father to protect us. We can rely on this prayer at every moment in our lives and trust that it will be answered.

John 14:15-21 – Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit – Jesus speaks about being still alive even after his death. Today, we find Jesus to be alive for us in the love of others – through the working of the Holy Spirit. God is love – and is alive in our care, compassion, and good works.

Jesus Appears To His Disciples – John 20:19-31 – We are ordinary people like Thomas, knotted up in our own fears and doubts. A personal encounter with Jesus had transforming effect on Thomas. May we pray for an openness to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus, unfailingly each day.

Worship – Sunday, March 19, 2023

The Fourth Sunday in Lent – John 9: 1-41 – Jesus restores a blind man’s sight – opening his eyes to the light of faith, that Jesus was the son of Man. May we pray that our eyes are opened to see the face of God in everyone we meet and everyone we pray for.

Worship – Sunday, March 12, 2023

Jesus reveals His desire to draw us into knowing God as He does. His open and generous heart is the heart of God, inviting us all to rest where we are known and loved, to find enduring life and lasting refreshment.

Worship – Sunday, March 5, 2023

Jesus invites Nicodemus to open his heart to a mystery that was beyond his thinking and learning – finishing His lesson with the verse, ‘God so loved the world …’ (John 3:16). If all the Gospels had been lost except for this verse – that alone would be enough to give hope to humankind, by showing us the limitless love of God for all.

Ash Wednesday Devotions – February 22, 2023

Live, in-person Ash Wednesday worship at Redeemer was cancelled due to an impending winter storm. This devotional video was recorded on Tuesday, February 21st.

Worship – Sunday, February 19, 2023

The Last Sunday after Epiphany – Transfiguration of Our Lord – Matthew 17:1-9 – Transfiguration is about Jesus and about us. When we are with Him, we are with the divine and when He is with us, He is with the human. His love, grace, sacraments, peace and compassion can transfigure us. Look at those around us and see as God sees them, as people capable of transfiguration. May we present in prayer to light and brightness; allowing light to invade our bodies and to know that the light of Jesus, given in baptism, is never extinguished.

Worship – Sunday, February 12, 2023

The Sermon On The Mount – Matthew 5:21-37 – Jesus is proclaiming a new era. He empowers us through grace, strengthening us to carry out what He asks of us. This empowerment is something to be asked for in prayer.

Worship – Sunday, February 5, 2023

The Fifth Sunday After Epiphany – Matthew 5:13-20 – Jesus draws on little things like salt and light to us teach us values. Salt preserves food and adds flavor to food, though its work is hidden. As salt of the earth we can be effective in bringing more taste to life for others. Light helps us to appreciate what is good and beautiful, and makes it easier to avoid pitfalls. Jesus, the light of the world, illuminates our lives to help us see the hidden hope of glory that is in us – so we can rejoice even in the darkness of the world.

Worship Service – Sunday, January 29, 2023

The Beatitudes – Matthew 5: 1-12 – Each of Jesus’s ‘blessed’ statements is an ideal of how to live a good Christian life and how to find God close to us. We look over our life and see if these statements fit – if they make sense, if they had brought a certain wholeness to our life when we were humble, merciful, a peace-maker, a justice-worker, mocked for our beliefs, or gentle. God is close to us in those moments. We ask for the grace to live by this vision of life, which was at the root of how Jesus lived.

Worship Service – Sunday, January 22, 2023

The Beginning of Jesus’ Ministry – Matthew 4:12-23 – Jesus introduces us to His ministry and calls us to follow Him – asking us to see aspects of our way of living that are in need of change. May we pray for those in need and ask our willing and able Jesus for the healing we need.

Worship Service – Sunday, January 15, 2023

“I saw the spirit descending from heaven”. Each one of us has also received the same Spirit in our baptism. It was that Spirit which inspired Jesus in all his work. May the same Spirit inspire us to follow in Jesus’ footsteps and join with him in his work to build the Kingdom.

Christmas Day Worship Service

No love that in a family dwells, No caroling in frosty air, Not all the steeple-shaking bells; Can with this single Truth compare – That God was Man in Palestine, And lives today in Bread and Wine. – G K Chesterton

Christmas Eve Worship Service

Luke 2:1-14 (15-20) – Nativity of our Lord – The scene is astounding. The holy Son of God, born in a stable where animals were kept and in a crib that was a common cattle trough. This is symbolic of how Jesus made himself nothing (kenoō), His human likeness the very nature of a servant. Kenoō means “make empty.” Jesus literally “emptied himself” of all the privileges to which He was heir. He didn’t just take a low place, He took the lowest place. His commission was to preach good news to the poor – so he was born among the poorest of the poor. His disciples argued about who would be greatest in the Kingdom. But Jesus stopped them short – explaining that the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many. The manger represents this serving.

Worship Service – Sunday, December 18, 2022

The Fourth Sunday of Advent – Matthew 1:18-25 – Here, we learn how Joseph loved Mary so much that he suppressed his doubts about her chastity and allowed himself to be regarded as the father of her child – knowing that he wasn’t. The facts that Joseph loved Jesus, brought Him up as his own, and taught Him his trade are all proof of good parenting by Jesus’ foster-father. Joseph is the obvious patron of adoptive fathers.

Worship Service – Sunday, December 11, 2022

Luke 3:7-14 – John the Baptist is asked, “What shall we do?” – What if, instead of asking each other “Are you ready for Christmas?” we start asking each other, “What then, are you going to do?” In light of Christ being born into the world, how will you act differently towards your neighbors, those you know and especially those you don’t know, those God sends to baptize us.

Worship Service – Sunday, December 4, 2022

Matthew 3:1-12 – John the Baptist Prepares the Way – “Baptism is the most important event of our lives. We were reborn to eternal life and we promised to believe in God, renounce sin, and to serve God faithfully. Let us renew our commitment today.”

Worship Service – Sunday, November 27, 2022

Advent is a season of hope and expectation. We are invited to prepare joyfully for the coming of Christ.

Worship Service – Sunday, November 20, 2022

Luke 23:33-43 – God is merciful to anyone and everyone who calls out to his Son. No one is too sinful and no one is too late. But there is a time, a moment, when the opportunity is there. One criminal, on a cross beside Jesus, was too wrapped up in his own pain and resentment and could not see the Savior was right beside him. The other criminal saw the King, and appealed to him – and he was promised paradise that very day. It was his last moment, and thankfully he took it.

Worship Service – Sunday, November 13, 2022

In our current information age, there are many who speak in extreme words, exaggerating the truth and telling the news in alarming and unsettling ways. Unlike Jesus, they do not offer truth or life. May we listen to Him now and hear how He speaks to us of faith, hope and love.

Worship Service – Sunday, November 6, 2022

Luke 20:27-38 – To believe in our own personal resurrection is a wonderful gift in this life. It gives meaning to all that makes up our lives. It is also expressed in our prayers that we offer for the repose of the souls of all those who have gone before us – which gets great emphasis on All Saints Day and the entire month of November.

Worship Service – Sunday, October 30, 2022

Luke 19:1-10 – Jesus Seeks Out Zacchaeus – As with Zacchaeus, Jesus desires a deep relationship with us and he calls us by name. Life is never the same again after Jesus enters your ‘house’ and builds up a friendship which is far more valuable than you could ever ask or imagine.

Worship Service – Sunday, October 23, 2022

Luke 18:9-14 – The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector – God never tires of forgiving us. But we tire of asking him for forgiveness and He cautions us against anything that elevates us or sets us apart from others. “God, help me to be aware of attitudes or words that demean others – and to find You where You find me.”

Worship Service – Sunday, October 16, 2022

Luke 18: 1-8 – Jesus gently reminds us of the need to pray and not lose heart. He knows we need to hear these words from time to time as we ask ourselves whether prayer does make a difference at all. I ask for the grace to hear Jesus encouraging me in my efforts to pray always, helping me not to lose heart.

Worship Service – October 9, 2022

Luke 17:11-19 – Jesus Heals Ten Men With Leprosy – Only one of the ten lepers that are healed returns to thank Jesus. And he was a Samaritan, considered an outsider and unworthy. Yet Jesus blesses him for his faith and gratitude. We do well to prize gratitude highly; it is an attitude that keeps us aware of how we are blessed and of who blesses us. If we can graciously receive the gratitude of others, we allow what God does to be appreciated and recognized.
