Matthew 17:1-9 Transfiguration Sunday, 10 AM, Peace Lutheran Fellowship, March 2, 2014
The story of the Transfiguration of Jesus always intrigued me. This is when Jesus went up the mountain with three of his disciples. Important things always happen on mountains in the Bible. This story is no exception. Jesus goes up the mountain and had a meeting with Moses and Elijah, who suddenly appeared, and then Jesus shone with brilliant, white. This must have bewildered the disciples, but what happened next terrified them. Listen and decide if you would have like to have been there that day.
Matthew 5:38–48 From Sunday, February 23, 2014, 10:00 AM
Father Tim Iistowanohpataakiiwa, is an Episcopal Priest and was born in Blackfoot Country, Montana, of Siksika and Northern Peigan tribal heritage. His Tiospia, or extended Sun Dance family, are Bear Medicine Healers, who dance in South East Washington. They dance for the healing of the People. His name was given to him by his Grandmother Ida, and it means, "Man Who Captures the Long Knife." His life experiences have taught him how to love those who mistreated him and how to receive healing. Father Tim shares the background of what Jesus' people went through at the hands of the Romans, and how unthinkable that Jesus would say, "Love your enemies." Listen to this powerful message.

As Ghandi put it, in
the world of “an eye for an eye, all become blind.” But here in this passage from the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus takes the 10 Commandments and turns up the heat! What is Jesus' getting at? Behind each of the laws, the message is how we are to live in community with one another.
Jesus' concern is not so much that we keep the commandments, it is that we keep each other. Learn more about this difficult passage that is often taken in the wrong way.
Matthew 5:1-12 Sunday, February 2, 2014
We are called to live in this world in a paradoxical manner. Poor in spirit, humility, peacemakers - these things are not what the world thinks of as successful or blessed. But Jesus says we right now have the Kingdom of Heaven.
makes the kingdom of heaven something to be desired, that makes us blessed? Listen now...
