St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

The community and friendships we experience in church are immeasurably life-giving. The love we show one another is a witness to the world. The most profound aspect of our family of faith may be that each of us church with people who are different from ourselves - people with whom you would not easily choose to hangout. It is a great witness to the world that each of us church with people who are ethnically, culturally, politically, economically, and other ways different from ourselves. This reflects the kingdom of God that Jesus ushered into the world, that is the body of Christ today, and is...

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

St Augustine said the church existed from all eternity whenever people loved one another.  The unconditional love and acceptance we share with one another is where Christ dwells fully among us.   The church is an alternative community where we love as Christ loves.  Out of this love flows genuine community established on the foundation of unconditional love and acceptance.   Subscribe to stay updated with the latest content.

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

One of the most fundamental skills in life is to be able to adjust well to things beyond our control.  Our lives are filled with circumstances beyond our ability to control them.  We experience situations that are adverse, often we end up feeling helpless and frustrated, wondering what to do next.   Psalm 131 and Jesus’ experience before his crucifixion show us how to adjust our attitudes and outlooks as we experience adversity.

Psalms for Ordinary Life, Part 4: Mirror and Window // Steve Brown show art Psalms for Ordinary Life, Part 4: Mirror and Window // Steve Brown

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

As we grind through our daily lives, we screw up. In our self-centered drive, we violate God’s values and hurt others. In the mirror of honest self-reflection, we see what we intuitively know about ourselves – we fall short of God’s way of living. If we were left with only the mirror of honest self-assessment, we would have no hope and we would fear our deserved judgment. In Christ, the condemning mirror becomes a window to see God’s unfailing love for us.   Subscribe to stay updated with the latest content. Follow St Luke Lutheran Church:

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

In this new post-pandemic/resurgence world, the need for the touch of community seems even more important than ever.  After a year and a half of keeping our distance from one another there is a hunger to be in the presence of one another.  Community cannot be fully formed at a distance, or through a screen.  True community and the blessings of community occur when we are present with and for one another.  We were designed for community and in community we find grace, peace, and belonging, and extend the same to others.    Subscribe to stay updated with the latest...

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

In our culture, we have a tendency to worship our work, work at our play, and play at our worship. This leads to work that can be anxious toil. Psalm 127 and the other passages point towards God’s way out for those of anxious toil.   Subscribe to stay updated with the latest content. Follow St Luke Lutheran Church:

Life can be overwhelming at times, so much so that we search for relief from the fears, pressures and worries that face us.  Psalm 121 invites us to focus on God who not only gives us all things, but also protects us everyday of our lives.     We abide in peace as we trust God   Subscribe to stay updated with the latest content.

Never Go Hungry // Steve Brown show art Never Go Hungry // Steve Brown

St. Luke Columbus Sermon Podcast

We repeatedly grow physically hungry when we have not eaten physical food. In this sense our appetites are insatiable. The same is spiritually true when we find our primary satisfaction and security in the work we do and the fleeting experiences of this world. We continue to hunger for more to fill the black hole inside of us.   Subscribe to stay updated with the latest content. Follow St Luke Lutheran Church:
