Bind Us Together, Lord–March 25, 2018

Grace UMC Dallas’s 2018 Palm Sunday celebration is a remembrance of home–of Jerusalem as the place to which Jesus must come to connect with his sacred roots and where he must confront empire and division.  Associate Pastor Eric Markinson asks listeners to honor their shared spaces and to be home to one another–especially those who long for home.  (Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29)  Includes the Chancel Choir’s lovely offering of “My Jesus, I Love Thee.”

A New Law–March 18, 2018

For the Fifth Sunday of Lent, Rev. Becky Hensley offers a moving and prophetic message on Jeremiah 31:31-34–asking us whether we wish to be a church and a nation that condones violence through our inaction, or one that can learn from some of our most marginalized voices, those of our youth.

March 4, 2018–Two Tablets / Ten Words

Reverend Judith Reedy considers Exodus 20:1-17, the Ten Commandments, in this Sunday’s sermon: These words provide boundaries and guidance by which to live and love in community.  Even today–especially today–they are needed to guide our care, of self and others.
