  1. I Am The Bread of Life - Sun, July 18, 2021

    Pastor Ron Glusenkamp
    The Seven I Am Statements of Jesus

    1 Kings 9:4-8 (NRSV)

    But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a solitary broom tree. He asked that he might die: “It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life, for I am no better than my ancestors.” Then he lay down under the broom tree and fell asleep. Suddenly an angel touched him and said to him, “Get up and eat.” He looked, and there at his head was a cake baked on hot stones, and a jar of water. He ate and drank, and lay down again. The angel of the Lord came a second time, touched him, and said, “Get up and eat, otherwise the journey will be too much for you.” He got up, and ate and drank; then he went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb the mount of God.

  3. Who Do You Say That I Am? - Sun, July 11, 2021

    Letting the Personal Jesus Out of the Box
    Rev. Wally Mohr

    1st Reading: Psalm 121:1-8 (NRSV)

    I lift up my eyes to the hills—
    from where will my help come?
    My help comes from the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth.

    He will not let your foot be moved;
    he who keeps you will not slumber.
    He who keeps Israel
    will neither slumber nor sleep.

    The Lord is your keeper;
    the Lord is your shade at your right hand.
    The sun shall not strike you by day,
    nor the moon by night.

    The Lord will keep you from all evil;
    he will keep your life.
    The Lord will keep
    your going out and your coming in
    from this time on and forevermore.

    2nd Reading: Matthew 16:13-22 (NRSV)

    Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” And they said, “Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Then he sternly ordered the disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Messiah.

    From that time on, Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and undergo great suffering at the hands of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, “God forbid it, Lord! This must never happen to you.”

    Isaiah 46: 3-4 (NRSV)

    Listen to me, O house of Jacob,
    all the remnant of the house of Israel,
    who have been borne by me from your birth,
    carried from the womb;
    even to your old age I am he,
    even when you turn gray I will carry you.
    I have made, and I will bear;
    I will carry and will save.

    Matthew 6:25-34 (NRSV)

    “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

    “So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
