Scripture: Ruth 1: 15-22
Here at Trinity, we’re currently in the midst of a sermon series on leadership. And why, you might wonder? Well, I’ll be completely honest with you. Right now, the church in America is struggling. Pre-COVID, the Church was, statistically, in decline. But, COVID rapidly accelerated that rate of decline. Some who study church trends speculate that where the church is right now is where we would have found ourselves ten years from now had COVID never happened. And, when an organization is in crisis – when any organization is in crisis – there is a need for strong leaders. So, this current sermon series is considering 6 C’s of leadership. [Let me add that all of the sermons can be found on the church website.] The first two were collaboration and courage.

Scripture: Exodus 17:8-13
We are beginning a new sermon series here at Trinity, synching with a new Sunday morning group led by Jeremy Grossman on superheroes of our faith and what they can teach us about leadership. If you go to the bookstore or browse the Web for tips on leadership, you’ll quickly find that our culture is saturated with how-tos for successful leadership. Leadership is a really hot topic. In this series, we will be discerning how leadership looks from a Christian viewpoint. How do we understand what it means to lead when we examine the stories of our faith? How does looking to God, trusting in God, and following Jesus reveal leadership to us? And then how do we apply this wisdom to our own day-to-day lives? These are some of the key questions we’ll be asking as we explore parts of the Bible together.

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 11:23-26
Britt and I were assigned to a cooperative parish for our first church assignment out of seminary. As Lent and Easter rolled around, we were excited about leading worship. One evening, during a planning meeting, we made a remark about communion on Easter morning. The zealous response blew us away. “Communion on Easter,” a gentleman exclaimed in an angry voice. “Communion is about Jesus’ death. It’s sad and somber. And we don’t want people sad on Easter.” He was dead serious.
