We meet a new king this morning in the story of Daniel! Is it an improvement? Not so much. Yet another important life lesson is learned... learning from others.By (Ben Bergren).
February 16 - 17, 2019 Sermon by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church
Lent can seem so long and boring as we want to also be pious and penitent. Here are some ideas to spice it up while still keeping the meaning of Lent. Check out for a great bible and devotional and podcast app.
How do you measure up? How will you know that God loves you? These are questions that we have asked ourselves and asked of each other (though maybe not out loud). In our gospel today, Jesus brings success after success and we would love to hold onto it forever. We want to feel successful and we give thanks to God when our lives are successful, ...…
February 10, 2019 - Matthew 7, Pastor Joanna Mitchell by Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church - Edina, MN

Pastor Dee preaches on the texts for the Fifth Sunday After the EpiphanyBy (Bethlehem Lutheran Church).
Pastor Alice examines the concept of failure in this week's sermon. We fail at life, we fail at healing, we fail at being friends and family members - but that's okay. Without the failures, we wouldn't see forgiveness. Without the failures, we wouldn't learn, grow, and find success.
Have you ever wondered why God called you, or how you could possibly be worthy of a calling? too...and Isaiah too...and Paul too...and Peter too. God equips us to do what we're called to do in surprising ways!
So...What is a Beatitude? During this podcast, Pastor Dan Smail and Wendy Farone walk through this critical piece of the Sermon on the Mount. A beatitude is a promise that's held forth to us, a word of hope for people who need to hear hope. They can also transform us by reorienting our priorities. They cause us to think about how we see the wor ...…
Like the weather in Texas, this episode is all over the place. From Game of Thrones to WWE. Church annual meetings to liturgical worship...this one has it all (with some Polar Vortex for good measure). There are a lot of things that can connect to our faith and connect us to God. What are some of those things for you?Rate! Review! Share! Subscr ...…
February 3, 2019 - Matthew 6, Brian Henning MDiv. by Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church - Edina, MN
Continuing on in Daniel, we hear how the king of Babylon builds a golden statue that everyone is commanded to worship... or else. There is much to learn from Daniel's friends and even Nebuchadnezzar. Listen in!By (Ben Bergren).
Nothing like an offensive sermon to rally the hometown crowd against Jesus. He returns to his roots and offers a message about God's promises being fulfilled, except his family synagogue begins thinking they'll get a double portion of Grace because he's a son of the community. Jesus reminds his people, through old hero stories they know well, t ...…

Janary 27, 2019 - Matthew 5, Pastor Scott Searl by Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church - Edina, MN
This week Jesus shows up and we give him the scriptures to read for us. He chooses a promise from Isaiah that leaves more questions than answers. He claims that the promise is fulfilled, yet we know that there are still poor, captive, blind, oppressed and neighbors paralyzed by debt. We know we are bound up in all these unfinished promises. Jes ...…
We move on to the 2nd chapter of Daniel and he quickly discover his next challenge. He is asked to do the impossible. His life depends upon how he responds. There is much to learn from this terrifying story!By (Ben Bergren).
Where it is easy to seek vengeance when we are angered, to cast judgement on those that do not agree or act like us - Pastor Alex reflects on how Jesus cuts the message of vengeance out of his teachings in this week's Bible reading. That Jesus doesn't judge the poor or outcasts - but actually invites them into the Kingdom of God...which is kind ...…
Pastor Dee preaches on the Third Sunday after Epiphany.By (Bethlehem Lutheran Church).
Do you have any friends? Do you have a best friend? Do they have a big coat too? Making friends can be hard sometimes. That's why you have your podcast buddies to be with you whenever you want! Seriously though, more and more folks seem to be looking for those elusive friends to share life with. That's, of course, why you come to us who have no ...…
We begin a new sermon series on the life of Daniel. We will spend the next 6 weeks looking at the Old Testament prophet. He is truly unshakable. We will learn how to be unshakable too.

So often Jesus is the center of the story. Obviously, Jesus is our center. In our reading from John, Jesus is an anonymous guest at a wedding reception and he reveals his glory without triumph or celebration. No one even notices. And yet, he pours out Grace upon Grace into empty vessels simply because they are empty and need refilling. Where ar ...…
While good wine may be lost on Pastor Heidi, she reflects on the fact that it wasn't lost one of the people in this week's gospel story. However, we can develop a discerning palette when it comes to seeing God's good wine in our lives each day.
