03.28.14 The universe has a flow and a telos, a purpose and an aim, a goal and a grain. And the grain of the universe is love. From the heart of God there is an endless flow of love. What wisdom knows is that to flow— and not fight— your way through life, you need to go with the grain. To flourish as a human being you must go with the grain of love. Our capacity to love comes from knowing that we are loved by God. Love of God demands love for the other— be they lover, neighbor, or enemy. The only way to love the other, especially an enemy is to practice the art of contemplation. Contemplation makes the Golden Rule possible.
Why is there light and water and trees and whales and life and Valentine’s Day? Because God is love. Creation is God’s infinite love expressed as matter and energy. God is love that seeks expression in the beauty of self-giving creativity. This is the basic revelation needed to understand the phenomenal gift of life. At the bottom of the universe, and at the end of all things, there is love. The meaning of life adds up to love. And unless you love, you will live life wrong.
08.02.15 Finding God On Your iPod is not an attempt to be cute or clever; I take this sermon series very seriously. I think some of my best sermons in the past seven years have come from Finding God On Your iPod. "Don’t Drink The Water" (2012) and "Ain’t No Reason" (2014) come to mind. Preaching is an intrinsically artistic endeavor. Sermons without artistry are either just lectures or bad sermons. What the Bible calls prophets, we usually think of as poets. Isaiah and Jeremiah, Hosea and Amos, Zechariah and Malachi, and even John the Revelator were what we call poets. The poetic and the prophetic are closely related. And the most visible poets today are music artists. So Finding God On Your iPod is an exploration of prophetic and spiritual themes found in contemporary music; some of it is explicitly Christian, some of it is not. But you can be sure of this: Every song will lead to a sermon that is saturated with gospel message of Jesus. First song for Finding God On Your iPod 2015 is "There Is No End To Love" by U2.
