All are Welcome: Evergreen Christian Church Podcast
By Evergreen Christian Church
Evergreen Christian Church, an open and affirming church in Evergreen, Colorado welcome all to join us in life's faith journey, to serve together, and to create a safe haven for the marginalized. We also welcome all to listen to this podcast to listen to sermons, reflections, prayers, and meditations made by folks at Evergreen Christian Church.
We offer a small reflection for those who may be in a season of grief and bereavement during the advent season. May your spirit be filled with God's love and compassion on this longest night.
You can watch a more fleshed out Longest Night/Blue Christmas service provided by the Ohio Region of the Disciples of Christ Here:
This year thanksgiving will look different. Some people will be missing loved ones, others will be mourning loved ones.
Despite the midst of sorrow and tribulation, we may find ourselves in, it is good for us to find joy and resist sorrow.
Please join Pastor Jack in this prayer for Thanksgiving.
Rev. Jack Veatch gives a short, off-the-cuff reflection on this week's sermon scripture, Romans 8:31-38 going into why Romans 8:31-38 should not be read as preemptive justification for one's actions but rather as preemptive assurance of God's love.
Rev. Jack Veatch, after the election but recorded before we fully know the election results, gives a reflection on what is means to be united.
Please forgive any distracted pronunciations (like how he pronounced Namibia as "Nambia") and awkward cuts, Pastor Jack's dog, Duke, was running around barking at people outside.
In his homily for October 18th, Pastor Jack contextualize the passage from Matthew in which Jesus says to "Give Ceasar what is Ceasars and give God what is God's." Reflecting on voting, civic duty, and religious duty, Pastor Jack talks about a much talked about passage.
