Pastor's Post

All are welcome at United Church

each Sunday at 10 am

for the worship and praise of God.


While I have never listened to an entire broadcast, I have been aware of the football playing, Super Bowl Champion, Kelce Brothers, Travis and Jason, and their podcast called New Heights. On the podcast, they drop weekly insights about the game of football, share insights about NFL news, and tell stories about their lives. From what I hear, it can be quite entertaining.

Earlier this year on the podcast, the brothers commented about an article in “The Athletic” that detailed some of their college experiences and antics living off campus in a house with teammates. One of the teammates commented in the article, about the Kelce Brothers saying that “those guys were absolute pigs” (The Athletic, 1/17/24). On the podcast, Jason and Travis agreed! They even called themselves “degenerates” talking about their college days.

This all got my attention because it seems like in the current day people work hard to distance themselves from comments that seem unflattering. From politicians (especially politicians), to pastors, to business leaders, to sports stars, to everyday folks we all know, and even ourselves. People try to cultivate a certain image and if something gets said, or implied, that goes against that image, people deny the comment and then seek to disparage the person who made the comment. How refreshing to hear bout the Kelce Brothers, as one example, who were willing to say, “Yep, that’s us” even when described in what might first be thought of as an unfavorable light.

Authenticity is the ability to be oneself, to be true to oneself. Who are your examples of authentic individuals? As Christians, we could easily turn our attention to Jesus who always sought to be the person he was born to be. Like all of us, Jesus had choices to make. And he made his choices staying true to himself.

During this Easter Season, let’s think more about authenticity for our lives of faith and for our life together as United Church.

Finally, it is not possible to write an article that includes Travis Kelce without mentioning Taylor Swift (who seems quite authentic to me).

Happy Easter Season!
