The Big Idea: When we feel at our lowest about life, we, too, can feel alone and see life as a wasteland–or little broken pieces–with little to offer. In our Jeremiah journey this week, God looks at the state of affairs and despairs… and yet… God does not “end it.” Instead, God still calls them “MY people” and, like a parent despite being at their wits end, does not abandon.

The Big Idea: Probably the most well-known scripture from the Book of Jeremiah is one of hope for do-overs. This is the image of God as the potter who recognizes that the direction of the clay as it is being shaped is not going to bring out its best qualities and so begins to rework it on the wheel. As long as the clay is continually worked by the potter, it can still be changed and made into the most beautiful version of itself. God is frustrated with the people’s actions, but God also knows that the true nature of God’s people remains. And so God keeps faithfully working with what is available. Are we willing to be molded by the love of God, calling us to be the best version of ourselves possible?

The Big Idea: Water is life, as they say. Since the Neolithic age, humans have utilized cisterns to hold water from rainfall and runoff. Capturing the water and holding it for later use offered a guarantee and security that the people would survive times of drought. Jeremiah’s prophecy this week uses this analogy to speak of the dangers of not paying attention to the things that can sustain life for the long-haul in favor of things that are of less worth. What can we name for our time that is truly important but in danger of being neglected?

The Big Idea: “Jeremiah was a prophet…” that’s how the first line of that Three Dog Night song started, but the rest of the band didn’t like it. So Jeremiah became a bullfrog in the nonsensical song that became a hit in the 1970’s. However, that first line wasn’t so random. Bullfrog groups are called “choruses” because of their loud croaking. And prophets are called to be a mouthpiece, speaking up and speaking out in order to bring awareness to life lived without careful consideration of the consequences of our actions. How are we called to be prophets in the places where our messages are not heard or appreciated?

The Big Idea: Paul's description of the maturing Christian -- from Romans 5 "suffering to endurance to character to hope to Love" -- is the movement of the Love within God's own self. This Trinity Sunday we celebrate a Triune God who moves us to ever more maturity in relationships of continuous transformation.

The Big Idea: A common thread of all transformation movements throughout history is a person who makes a transformation from fear and hiding to speaking the truth, no matter what the consequences. At the Day of Pentecost, the Disciple Peter became the Apostle Peter because he apprehended the truth: Jesus was alive and therefore no one need fear death. Peter's speech to those people of Jerusalem ignited the crowd.

The Big Idea: The ancient Christian stories tell about many times that Jesus appeared to many people, in curious and surprising ways after his resurrection. But there came a time when those appearances stopped, just as suddenly as they started. The story about Jesus' ascension is a story about the pivot to the next chapter in God's story with humans. The next chapter in the story about God's action through Church of the Covenant will be a sudden shift in perspective.

The Big Idea: After doing all they knew how to do, Simon Peter, Thomas called the Twin, Nathaniel of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples had gone back to fishing. They fished all night, but were unsuccessful. Jesus told them to try again. Try something of what you know -- fishing -- but this time in a new way. The fish were right in front (below?) them all along. What is Jesus inviting us to do, perhaps in a new/old way, that will change everything about the outcome?
