We Should Have Known Better  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 14: 22–33
Summary: Often, we act against what our best thinking tells and inner certainties tell us. Then, when things go wrong, we say, “I should have known better.” We can begin to sink under the weight of such circumstances, but Jesus reaches out to us. We need to take his hand.

Supply and Demand  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 14: 13–21
Summary:  When we join the crowd at the seashore, we come to understand that God’s way with us is not one of bargaining but of wild abundance and generosity. And when we see what Christ can do with even the little that we do offer, the only thing that is needed is to figure out ways we can share God’s plenty with others.

Lunch Baskets and Moral Choices  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 14: 13–21
Summary: When Jesus outlined moral values, he put feeding the hungry at the top of his priority list. In fact he said that ultimately we would be judged on how well we did that. “I was hungry and you gave me food ….” Jesus fed a hungry crowd, but only after a young boy showed enough faith to give up his lunch. We too have a lunch basket, and we are called to faith. We are called to believe that with our “Yes” God will work miracles.

Feeding Others When We’re Sick to Our Stomach  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 14: 13–21
Summary: Even though we wish we could escape our own pain and the suffering of the world, Jesus’ actions in the feeding of the multitude call us to engage in healing and giving ministry. We need time apart to heal, but we cannot run away from the suffering of others. We offer comfort, grace and love. We meet the world’s needs as a witness to the time when God will overcome all of the needs of creation.

Out to Sea  Click here Click title to view sermon Matthew 14: 22–33
Summary: Matthew, Mark and John all tell the story of Jesus walking on the water, but Matthew includes details the other two gospeleers do not. Those details help us to hear the message that rather than attempting to walk away from our problems, we are better to ask Christ to join us in our shaky crafts, trusting him to sail the rest of the journey with us, and to eventually land us safe on heaven’s shore.
