Sermons on “Jesus”

Traditional Service, “He Set His Face”

Jesus “set his face” to go to Jerusalem, which is a key to understanding almost all of Luke’s gospel: the point of Jesus’ life was to go to the place of his death, resurrection, and ascension. But how did the people know Jesus’ face was set? How could they tell? Faces are like sacraments: outward and visible signs of something that’s inward and spiritual and deep.

Uptown Service, “The Power of Mundane Prayer”

There is nothing more rewarding, both in this life and in the next, than slowly and steadily becoming more like Jesus by learning to pray the way He prayed.

Uptown Service, “Two Feet in the Ceiling”

Why are there two feet hanging out of the ceiling in Ascension Chapel? And what do those two feet tell us about our life with God?

Fr. Chris Yoder

Traditional Service, “Comings & Goings”

The Ascension of Jesus is the ground of Christian hope and the basis for the mission of the Church.

Uptown Service, “A Strange Invitation”

To invite others to church is to invite them to discover new life in the company of Christ crucified.
