    Preaching from the Gospel according to Matthew, chapter 23 verses 1-12, Rev. Moore explores this passage known as "Jesus denounces the scribes and the Pharisees." Rev. Moore takes pains in his sermon to underscore that this passage is not Jesus attacking the Jews, but rather Jesus talking against a system of checks and balances intended to keep people out of the church.

            This morning Lori preaches from the book of Judges, chapter 11 verses 29-40. In this decidedly dark text from the Hebrew scriptures, we witness what could only be described in our modern vernacular as insane. Lori explains that when we make claims on the lives of others in the name of God, we're claiming to speak for God, when really God isn't doing the talking. Recorded Oct. 16, 2011 from the pulpit of Mayflower Congregational UCC Church in Oklahoma City.

              This Sunday Rev. Meyers preaches from the gospel of Matthew, chapter 22 verses 15-22. In this often misappropriated text, Jesus thwarts those trying to undo him by skillfully dodging the trap completely: "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's and render unto God that which is God's." Which begs the question: What doesn't belong to God? Recorded Oct. 16, 2011 from the pulpit of Mayflower Congregational UCC Church in Oklahoma City.
