Karpos Kalos

Wisdom from above is . . . full of mercy and good fruits

I'm on an adventure with a congregation that has been around for over 125 years. Venerable old vines are producing fresh new fruit.

March 26. Transforming the world into a place of justice: it's what Jesus-followers do. What will it look like? Ah, there's the rub. In 2,000 years, Christians have yet to agree on that point. But, you're responsible for only one of those Christians: yourself. What are you working toward? Find this Sunday's sermon here.

TRANSFORM - the Fourth of the 5 Marks of Love for Lent - SERMON

John Lennon, in his song Imagine, does something I think we should all do: think about what we really want, what we imagine life on earth could be like right here and right now. Theoretically, as Jesus-followers pen their lyrics, they first would consider how God would write the lyrics to the song and try to be consistent. But we can't stop with imagination! In this mark of love, we discern how we live into that imagination, what we need to transform in our lives so the world as it…

TEND - the THIRD of the 5 Marks of Love for Lent - SERMON by Cindy Roehl

We are often told to "do something for Lent." What about simply focusing on the good we already do and simply being more aware and intentional? Listen to the sermon here.

WHAT DOES "KARPOS KALOS" MEAN?

"Karpos kalos" literally means, in Greek, "fruit good". The inspiration for using it is James 3:17, which says "But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy." More . . .

TEACH - the Second of the 5 Marks of Love for Lent - SERMON

"Those who can do; those who can't, teach." Garbage. The best teachers are the ones who not only know something about something, they love it, and they live it. They teach with their whole being. That's what Jesus-followers are called to do. Read the sermon here or listen to it…See More

Not Your Grandma's Lent - ASH WEDNESDAY SERMON

What if we spent Lent doing God's will rather than feeling terrible about how badly we've behaved? Not even God messes with the past. Let's spend 40 days and 40 nights on making the same kind of mark in people's lives as Jesus did. Listen to the sermon here or read it…See More

Jesus Interferes with Everything - SERMON

If we could design our own religion, we'd probably want a god who would agree with our ideas, let us do as we like, and hate all the same folks we do. That means it would not look very much like Christianity, because in this religion, Jesus interferes with everything. Listen to the sermon here, or read it …See More
