The Rev. Candy Snively reflects on Luke 3:7-18 and Philippians 4:4-7: “So anyone feeling stressed these days? ‘Tis the season of total busyness when there are just not enough hours in your day to get everything accomplished, and there’s nothing to put you in the Christmas spirit quite like a good lecture from John the Baptist: ‘You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?’ Somehow I don’t think you’d find that sentiment on a Hallmark card. No where does the difference between John the Baptist and Jesus stand out so clearly.”View Sermon
The Rev. Candy Snively considers James 5:13-20 and the transformative nature of the Lord’s Prayer: “We live in a world all too full of injustice, hunger, malice, and evil. This prayer cries out for justice, bread, forgiveness, and deliverance. When Jesus gave his disciples this prayer, he was giving them part of his own breath, his own life, his own prayers.”View Sermon
The Rev. Candy Snively discusses John 6:35, 41-51: “Have you ever wondered why doesn’t God speak up? Or let alone, why doesn’t God step up? The idea of leaving everything up to God may seem naive to us during critical times.”View Sermon
