A Mystery Story  Click here Click title to view sermon John 13: 1–17
John 13: 1–15 for LFM
Summary: The story of Jesus washing his disciples’ feet has a rather obvious meaning: that we are to serve one another. But the description of Jesus laying aside his garments for this task points back to his words about the good shepherd who lays down his life for the sheep. Taking the role of a slave and washing his disciples’ feet points to the meaning of his death and resurrection, a cleansing from sin and restoration of true faith in God.

Celebrating What Is Most Important in Life  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 11: 23–26
Summary: What is truly important in life? Many fine and varied answers could be proffered, but in the end, it is our Christian faith that is most important. Today the Christian community begins to celebrate its tradition in the Eucharist and in the challenge we have to be the Eucharist, the presence of Christ, to one another.

Do You Know?  Click here Click title to view sermon John 13: 1–17
Summary: Jesus asks us, along with his disciples at their last dinner together, “Do you know what I have done to you?” Among the many things we know, the ways of God — and the mysteries of Holy Week — are perhaps the hardest. We, no less than the disciples, find ourselves dazed and confused. Jesus directs us again to the path of knowledge, which means following his example — washing feet, serving others, giving our lives away. Doing what Jesus did helps us know who Jesus is.

The View From the Bottom of a Foot  Click here Click title to view sermon John 13: 1–35
Summary: There are many valid ways to approach God in Christ. But once we are there in his presence, a towel and a basin of water will be waiting for us. God himself will serve us. As a generous host, he will gently wash our feet. He makes us clean and welcome in his presence. But then God hands the towel and the basin to us, saying, “There are feet that need washing. As I have washed your feet, so you must wash each others.”

Remembering Jesus  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 11: 23–26
Summary: Remembering Jesus is more than just thinking about him. Literally, to remember something is to make it come alive. It’s the opposite of dismembering, the separating of the members one from another. Remembering puts them back together. Our remembering of Jesus should be reflected in our daily lives.
