Didn’t get to the Tab last Sunday? Or did you come and want to hear Rev. Christopher Whiteman’s beautiful sermon one more time? Well here is your chance! Take some time to listen to the reading from Deuteronomy and the sermon on Welcoming the Stranger.
Yesterday we were treated with a wonderful sermon from Rev. Linda Michel who was the Co-Dean and Chaplain of the MACUCC Adult Music Camp who was worshiping with us. The readings were from Genesis 29:15-28 (Jacob marrying Leah and Rachel) and Romans8:28-39 (nothing can separate you from the love of God). They were proclaimed by Dick Trull. Take some time to listen to these readings and then Rev. Michel’s sermon called “Family Circle”.
This last Sunday was Creation Sunday at the Tabernacle. We sang songs giving praise to the world around us, prayed for God’s gift of plants and animals, and the children even went into nature to learn about why we need to care for the earth. Edward Dunar, our Worship Coordinator and Theologian in Residence, gave a wonderful sermon on the need for prayer in responding to the world around us. Take a moment to listen to his words and give thanks for the beautiful creation we live in.
Rev. Dr. Diane Carpenter presided at our service last Sunday and gave a beautiful sermon on “Jesus, Remember Me”. Here is the recording of the reading by Alice Brown and the sermon. Come worship with us this Sunday to hear more wonderful reflections.
As was stated in our last post, Rev. Dr. Ed Deyton gave a wonderful sermon and also provided our music at our service yesterday. Here is the recording of the reading by Rodger Hansen and the sermon. If you keep listening you will hear two songs from our service. The first is called “Make me and Instrument”. The second song is called “How Beautiful are the Feet”. Both songs are written by Rev. Dr. Ed Deyton. Enjoy!
Every Sunday at the Tabernacle is filled with the spirit of God but that spirit comes in many forms. Because we have a different preacher for each service, the Word of God is seen through different perspectives for the congregation to reflect on. This summer we wanted to make sure those beyond the Tabernacle’s porous walls can listen to these unique voices. To that end, we are recording our sermons and will be posting them here every week.
Yesterday, Rev. Eric Henderson gave a beautiful sermon on our opening Sunday. The reading was Acts 2:1-13: the Pentecost story. Rev. Henderson’s sermon was titled “Surprise, Surprise, Surprise”. As a side note, you will hear Rev. Henderson, at the beginning of the recording, speak about the robes he’s wearing. These robes were given to him by the family of Rev. Carl Schultz, a beloved Reverend, CCMA President, and member of our community. It was especially touching to those who knew Carl to see Rev. Henderson preach in Carl’s robes in his beloved Tabernacle.
We are excited to announce our preachers for this summer! This year, we’ll hear from a range of voices, familiar and new, from a variety of denominations and types of ministry.
