A Sermon for Christmastide by Emmy Lu Daly

December 31, 2017


Sing: “Holy spirit come, make my eyes to see, make my ears to hear, make my mouth to speak.
Make my heart to sing and my hands to reach out and touch the world with Your love”.

This is a favorite song in the L’Arche Community and it is sung at the opening of prayer night every other Tuesday evening. Many people who are not directly involved in L’Arche, join us because it is always inspiring. Seekers Church has been a generous supporter of L’Arche for many years and I want to thank the community for that faithful support.…

Christmas Eve

Tonight we gather here once again for our Seekers Christmas Eve potluck dinner and ceremony of lessons and carols,a tradition of Seekers Church for many years — long enough that our daughters, the Ogle boys, the seat girls, and the Dongo kids have all read various parts of the lessons when they were in our Sunday School.  And now almost all of them are adults!

When I was growing up our church had a Christmas tree up front near the pulpit and all of its decorations were Christian symbols.  Part of our church tradition was to explain those symbols to the children and youth each year.

“Who are You?” by Billy Amoss

December 17, 2017

Third Sunday of Advent

Our reading for today from the Gospel of John contains these lines:

This is the testimony given by John when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”

Who are you? Has anyone asked you that recently?  And when was the last time you put that question to someone?

In fact, if we pay attention to how our mind works, we will notice that we ask that question of everyone we encounter, whether aloud or silently, to see how they fit into the running narrative in our minds that shapes and makes sense of our reality.…
