Choosing Our Ancestors

We begin a five week series on Psalms today which is why we are calling it Summer Playlist. Psalms are songs. The Book of Psalms is like a hymnbook. So each week we will have songs we use in worship you can access at stlukesumc.com/summer

To save time in today’s message I have a one-page background that helps to understand the Book of Psalms. This morning we begin with Psalm 16 which is a Psalm of Trust.See sermon notes and more at stlukesumc.com/sermons

HOPE: Spiritual Poverty

Today is Pastor Nicole's last Sunday at St. Luke's UMC, Indy. Listen in as we learn that Spiritual poverty not only makes it difficult to see the possibility of God, but spiritual poverty makes it difficult to see that God is where we are because of where we are.

Hang On Peace Exists

If you haven’t caught on by now, we are in a final series this spring dealing with Paul’s spiritual tri-fecta. I Lent we talked about Faith. After Easter we spent some weeks dealing with Love. Now we talk about Hope. Faith, Hope and Love. I realize we got them out of order, but that’s just to keep you on your toes.

But really, this order makes more sense, because if we have faith and love, then we are going to be people of hope. We are going to have hope and give hope. So this series uses HOPE as an acronym to consider the different ways we are called as people of faith and love to bring hope to the world. So today we consider how H.O.P.E. means Hang On, Peace Exists!

Helping Other People Education: HOPE

There comes a point when the veil is lifted, and you realize the world isn’t as perfect as you thought.  When this happens, it 1 of three things.  1. It jades you and you become a skeptic.  2. It inspires you. 3. It does a little of both. Listen in as Pastor Jevon talks about HOPE in Education and how you can plant the seed in someone's life that can change them forever.

Hold On, Pain Ends!

I have to be honest with you, this is a hard week to preach this message. Objectively, I believe this. I believe that pain can be overcome and hope is always possible, but I have to tell you that this week I really did not FEEL it. As I watched the news out of Texas, just a couple weeks after shootings in New York and California, as I saw pictures of the kids and adults who had died, and as a mother I sent my own children back to school the next day, the pain and grief seemed too loud to even understand. Listen as Pastor Mindie talks about Pain and Hope.

Loving When Things Aren’t Clear

Ever had the experience where you think you’re talking with somebody but it’s like you’ve got two totally different conversations going on? Or where you think you are talking about the same thing but what the other person is saying you can’t even understand. Or when you are with someone and you are trying to work something out, and you start to discover, “I don’t think we’re going to get there. I don’t think we are going to agree. I don’t know that we are going to be able to clear things up.” What does it mean to love when things aren’t clear?

Enduring Love

I’ll let you in on a secret. Most pastors, and I am among them, feel a lot of trepidation about preaching on Mother’s Day. I learned the hard way in my first church what happens when you don’t preach about mothers at all on Mother’s Day. When I got out of seminary I followed the lectionary, prescribed Bible passages for each Sunday of the year. My first Mother’s Day I followed the lectionary without a mention of mothers. And I heard it from all the people who love their mommas and all the mommas who have kids. I don’t think I could have had a more visceral reaction than had I preached some heresy.

Love Matters

Today we start a new series called, Love, Practically. Join us as Pastor Jevon takes helps us in understanding love through purses and labels. He explains how there is no area of your life where love does not apply. 

As we go through these next few weeks, don’t just limit this to romantic love.  The Greeks had different iterations of the word that described different kinds of relationships.  It described love of friendships, family, our love for and from God, and romantic love.

Easter Faith

For the past six weeks we have been talking about what it means to live by faith. So this morning I want to focus on the second part of the Easter story in John’s Gospel because it focuses on Mary Magdalene who represents a particular kind of Easter faith. Like Peter and John who witnessed the empty tomb, they were all believers in Jesus. They didn’t exactly come to faith on Easter, they came to a new faith.

Faith of the Crucifier

Today Pastor Rob Fuquay portrays a Centurion in the Roman Legion serving in Judea under Pontious Pilate, prefect of Caesarea, and loyal subject to his divine sonship, Emperor Augustus. Loyal, that is, until he avowed faith in Another. Listen as Pastor Rob dramatically portrays this story.

Faith Changes How I Face Daily Pressures

For people of faith it seems the burden of proof has always been against us when it comes to presenting a reasonable argument for why we believe. After all we are talking about a God we cannot see or touch; and claims like resurrection, walking on water or parting a sea defy what our own sciences say is possible. Listen how Pastor Rob talks about finding the evidence in your life.

Faith Changes How I See Jesus

This week, Pastor Nicole explains how sharing the love of Jesus can change how not only God sees us, but how we see the miracles He makes in our lives. How, Faith is a filter that changes the way we see the world and even the way that we see Jesus. Depending on our angle, our soul settings the saturation of faith and the light of Christ that filters through our lives- we literally see the world and even Jesus differently.

Faith Changes My Willingness to Pray for Others

Have you ever been turned off with Jesus? If so, why? Was it the way you experienced Jesus through people who said they followed him? Was it the judgment you felt? Narrowness? A feeling that being associated with Jesus made you a less critical thinker, a self-righteous person, or someone who had to believe things you don’t believe? Listen to Pastor Rob as he dives deep into how faith changes your willingness to pray for others.

Ash Wednesday 3/2/22

Our series this Lent is called Faith Changes Everything. Lent is a good season to give attention to our faith. It is a time for Christians to reflect on the meaning of Jesus’ suffering and death and deepening and renewing our connection to God.

But you don’t have to be Christian, of course, to have faith. You don’t even have to believe in God to have faith.

Faith Changes What I Seek

In this first Sunday in our Lenten series, Faith Changes Everything, Pastor Rob talks about how faith is determined by what you seek. If your highest need is comfort and satisfaction faith might always seem a bit illusive, or perhaps thin. But if you seek a connection to God that can weather difficult times, then you will discover a faith that changes everything.

Ride-or-Die

Pastor Jevon finishes the Indispensable Relationships series today talking about the need for a "ride-or-die" relationship in our life. How God shows us His presence in our lives through people, and how these people are in your corner, win, lose, or draw. Listen in and think about who fills this role in your life - or are you the friend to follow and be someone's ride-or-die.

The Challenger

Pastor Mindie Moore continues our series called Indispensable: relationships we simply cannot live without. And this theme is perfect for this week, when you and you and you and you and, according to market research, 145 million Americans gave Valentine’s Day cards to people they find indispensable. 

But you know, of all the types of cards that were given this week- to the husband, wife, partner, galentine or friend- you may not find one written for the relationship that we’re exploring today. Because today, we’re going to talk about “the challenger”.
