Sermons from St. Martin-in-the-Fields
An Ancestor of Faith| The Rev. Jarrett Kerbel
An Ancestor of Faith
There are those people in our lives who showed us the faith. The Eunices and Loises and Pauls to us when we are an uncertain Timothy. The people who show us what faith is, what it means to be a person of faith, how to carry on when times get rough and we get a little doubtful or ashamed. The Rev. Jarrett Kerbel tells us about a few of those people in his life. Who is that person in your life?

Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost. Gospel: Luke 17:5-10
Increase Your Faith| The Rev. Dr. William Flippin, Jr.
Increase Your Faith
When we are faced with uncertainty, perhaps is it just a lack of imagination in the great things that God has in store. If we put our trust in Jesus, in God as Lord, we will take hold of the boost we need.
Thank you to the Rev. Dr. William Flippin, Jr. for starting off our 2019-2020 Evensong season!

Church as Intercessor| The Rev. Anne Thatcher
Church as Intercessor
Church intercedes on behalf of God to the world and on behalf of the world to God. ...What does church as intercessor look like?...What would happen if the church abdicated its role as intercessor for the world? The Rev. Anne Thatcher explores these questions as a glimpse of the answers are revealed to us through the scriptures for this morning.
Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost. Gospel: Luke 16:1-13
Mercy Party| The Rev. Jarrett Kerbel
God, again and again, chooses mercy and invites everyone to the party. Are we also willing to put aside our own ideas of who we are and how we define ourselves to accept the invitation to God's radical mercy party?
Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost. Gospel: Luke 15:1-10
Growing Into Beloved Community| The Rev. Carol Duncan
Growing Into Beloved Community
What examples do our readings this morning hold for us on what it means to become a beloved community? How does a beloved community act? What should we watch for? And how does our Becoming Beloved Community plan address these lessons? Rev. Carol Duncan guides us through these questions and reminds us that, "Whoever is not against us is for us."
Sermon based on the lectionary readings from the 19th Sunday after Pentecost, with the Gospel text from Mark 9:38-50.
