Day of Pentecost (C) – June 9, 2019

[RCL] Genesis 11:1-9; Psalm 104:25-35, 37; Romans 8:14-17 or Acts 2:1-21; John 14:8-17, (25-27) Genesis 11:1–9 This passage in Genesis describes a time when all of humanity resided in one place and spoke one language, a vision of unity that sounds awfully appealing today. Imagine how our perception of the world’s economic and environmental challenges would change if we saw ourselves as part of one global community, with loyalties that reached beyond our particular region, state, or nation. And think of how delightful it would be to freely communicate our hopes and dreams, our joys and sorrows, to anyone...

[RCL] Acts 11:1-18; Psalm 148; Revelation 21:1-6; John 13:31-35 Acts 11:1-18 The Acts of the Apostles depicts Jesus’ early followers as observant Jews and the beginnings of the church as rooted within Judaism, yet is concerned with the expansion of the church from those origins to a movement spread throughout the Roman Empire.In the first part of today’s passage, verses 1-3, Peter’s fellow apostles and the Jewish believers in Jesus (the circumcised believers) confront Peter as he returns to Jerusalem from baptizing the Roman centurion Cornelius in Caesarea. They demand an explanation for why he has broken the Jewish...

Easter (C) 2019

One of the wonderful joys of Easter is that it is a Season: 50 days to celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Christ’s victory over the power of sin, evil and death.We celebrate those seven Sundays during which the early Church commemorated/remembered together in community what took place following Jesus’s death and burial. Christ was experienced physically by those who knew Him. There is a power in those stories and there is hope and joy.Every year we share those stories (that Central Story in/of our faith) with each other and the world. We can only tell the...

Mary Magdalene Fund Easter Ingathering

But whoever has been forgiven little loves little. “Then Jesus said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.”  The Mary Magdalene Fund supports the operations, work, and mission of The Episcopal Community.

Lenten Thoughts 2019

Lenten Thoughts 2019

When I think of Lent, I think of daffodils. To bloom, daffodils must have a period of quiet (twelve to sixteen weeks) underground in the silent, cool darkness. During that time, a daffodil slowly develops roots as it takes in nutrients from the soil. It then goes dormant, resting, before beginning the inner formation of the future flower. Finally the leaves push through the soil to the light, the first sign of the inner silent growth. The foliage, its life supported by the strong roots slowly grown during the quiet resting time, is able to withstand snow and freezing...
