The Juice

The Juice

I want to tell you the story of a great athlete and the boy who looked up to him. The athlete was a legendary football player- one of the all time greats. In one of his first college football games, he ran a 64-yard touchdown. At that same game, a 15 year old snuck in […]

The Gospel According to Wayne and Garth?

The Gospel According to Wayne and Garth?

By now, you have probably heard of the recent real life obituary in the Richmond Times Dispatch. “Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God on Sunday, May 15, 2016, at the age of 68.”  Mrs. Noland […]

God’s Green Jacket Is Red

God's Green Jacket Is Red

Back when people sent invitations to parties by mail, rather than by Evite, I remember going into friends’ houses and occasionally seeing invitations to parties to which we weren’t invited hanging on their fridge. Even if we didn’t want to actually go to the said party, it still hurt to not get the bid. The […]

A Line for Your Obituary

A Line for Your Obituary

Have you written your obituary?  Have you thought about what you would say in a obituary? What did you say? How did your describe yourself? Family, education, birthplace, vocation – these are but a few common identifiers that describe our story.  St. Paul is writing to the young Romans Christians about who they are – […]

Messy Mother

Messy Mother

Happy Mother’s Day! As I stand up here I am keenly aware that I am probably the only Mother to have preached from this pulpit on Mother’s Day. It’s hard to describe the feeling—awe, joy, anxiety, gratitude, amazement, a little disbelief- all mixed together. I wonder, “How did this happen—that I am in Christ Church […]

No Matter What

No Matter What

A couple weeks ago I didn’t want to go to school. I asked my mom if I could stay home and take a “mental health day.” Begrudgingly and with a sigh that I knew all too well, she said yes, but she also said, “You know, when you’re in college and the real world, you […]

You, I Would Die for You

You, I Would Die for You

In our gospel reading this morning, Jesus gives his disciples a new commandment. The setting is the Last Supper. These are some of His final words to His followers. The new commandment is this: the disciples are to love one another, just as Jesus has loved them.  He says there will be a kind of […]

Jesus vs. Alfred Hitchcock

Jesus vs. Alfred Hitchcock

First off, I’d like to thank you for not bolting for the doors. While this is the first sermon I’ve ever given, it’s a scary experience for me, but it might be even scarier for you. So thank you for remaining in your seats! That said, I’d like to talk about Alfred Hitchcock, the 20th-century director. […]
