A Way Out  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 7: 24–37
Mark 7: 31–37 for LFM
Summary: Jesus met a man confined by his impediments to a silent, frustrating situation. The man’s mind was fine, but there was no way for him to get what was in it out to the world around him. Jesus changed all that and gave him a way out. Even when we’re trapped in situations of birth, disease, accident or prisons of our own making, Jesus offers hope and a way out.

The Doctrine of So–and–So Made Me  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 7: 1–23
Summary: What defiles us does not come from outside of us. Its origins are usually within us. This teaching of Jesus isn’t about food or outdated ritual. It hits us right where we live, just as hard as it did back then.

Not What It Seems  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 7: 1–13
Summary: Not everything is as it seems to be at first sight. The Pharisees prided themselves on keeping the rules and assumed that this made them superior. Jesus, however, was not impressed by the moral measure that they used to justify themselves and to judge harshly those who failed to follow their example. His response to their arrogance gives us a framework by which we can determine our relationship with him.

The Mother Who Would Not Take No for an Answer  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 7: 24–37
Summary: Faith in God is a vital component of our lives and of our courage. That was modeled for us in the action of a Gentile woman of the New Testament who convinced Jesus of her faith and thus saved her daughter. She reminds us that faith in God is a foundation for courage and love, and that with that kind of faith, Jesus can accomplish miracles in our lives.

Lazy Ear Syndrome  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 7: 31–37
Summary: Hearing requires more than having ears. There are and have always been those with ears to hear but they do not hear. Perhaps such deafness can be attributed to the fact that we tune out what we do not wish to hear. The deaf man in today’s gospel could be healed, because he could admit that he did not hear. Such an admission might also be the beginning of our personal and collective hearing.

Cleaning Our Hands and Our Souls  Click here Click title to view sermon Mark 7: 1–23
Summary: We each carry within us sinful impulses, and things and people outside of us can bring this darkness to the surface. Empty ritual does not prepare us for the battle with temptation but with God’s help, we can heal what lies within us and gain strength to face a world that sometimes calls out the worst in us. With grace, ritual becomes a means of feeding our souls.
