St. Philip Lutheran Church 25 July 2021 + Lectionary 17B (Pent. 9) John 6.1-21 Rev. Josh Evans, preaching LISTEN HERE One of my earliest memories of my call at St. Philip - now nearly a year ago (hard as that is to believe!) - was our Lunch Bunch gathering last August. I hardly knew any of you, after only a week on the job, but I remember gathering on the lawn on a beautiful, sunny summer Tuesday … our chairs circled up (and socially distanced). There was such joy in being to
We love having families worship with us, and we especially welcome the presence (and the sound!) of children during our services. But we also understand that children (and their parents) might need a break every now and again. That is why we offer a special room for kids to hang out, while parents can still listen to the service on the intercom in the room. Let an usher know if you need help finding it or turning on the intercom. The Joyful Noise room features comfy chairs, b
St. Philip Lutheran Church 18 July 2021 + Lectionary 16B (Pent. 8) Mark 6.30-34, 53-56 Rev.

It’s the “blah” feeling that psychologist Adam Grant suggests many of us might be feeling in these ongoing days of global pandemic. Languishing, Grant says, is like the “neglected middle
St. Philip Lutheran Church 11 July 2021 + Lectionary 15B (Pent. 7) Amos 7.7-15; Mark 6.14-29 Rev. Josh Evans, preaching LISTEN HERE Let’s talk about Amos. By the time the book that bears his name opens, the status of the monarchy of ancient Israel isn’t great. The once unified kingdom has split into two, with Israel to the north and Judah to the south. Soon, Israel would be conquered by Assyria, and not long after, Judah would be conquered by Babylon. Enter Amos. Amos came fr

St. Philip Lutheran Church 4 July 2021 + Lectionary 14B (Pent. 6) Mark 6.1-13 Rev. Josh Evans, preaching LISTEN HERE “Can I bring anything?” … is usually the first question out of my mouth whenever I’m invited to someone else’s house for a meal. Maybe it’s the Midwestern politeness in me, but it doesn’t feel like “nothing” or “just yourself!” are ever acceptable answers. “Take nothing with you,” Jesus says to his disciples, before sending them out two by two. “Take nothing wi
