  • Faith is a familiar concept to us, and, at the same time, it is a strange idea. As we go through our everyday lives, we rely upon faith more than we realize, perhaps. We have faith that cars will stop at the red light, allowing us who have the green light to proceed safely. When we go to the grocery... [read more]
  • In my sermon last Sunday, I said that it was important for the church to talk about money. That’s true. If we don’t talk about money, the place that it has in our spiritual lives, then it is much more likely that money will assume a place in our lives that is out of all proportion to it’s priority i...

  • As is the case each Fall, as the days grow shorter, the mornings are a bit cooler, and the afternoon light has that golden transparency to it that makes the autumn my favorite season, the Gospel lessons in our lectionary turn to themes of stewardship. They might not be overtly about money, though a ... [read more]
  • It has been said, somewhat cynically, that there are two things certain in life: death and taxes. I would maintain that there are a number of other certainties in life, like the abundance of God’s love, but this quip still holds a certain degree of truth. If, then, these two eventualities are inesca... [read more]

  • Everyone enjoys getting an invitation in the mail. Whether it’s to a dinner, a party, a wedding, or another special occasion, receiving an invitation makes us feel included, wanted, and valued. Invitations are a confirmation that we are part of a community, and human beings are, at heart, communal c... [read more]
  • Historically, there are four orders of ministry in the Church: the laity, deacons, priests, and bishops. The roots of the three ordained orders can be found in the Old and New Testaments. Certainly, there were priests of the Temple, beginning with Aaron, and that priesthood has many theological and ... [read more]

  • It appears that there are some who are not distressed by the level of anger and vitriol in the rhetoric of this election season. I did not watch either of the party conventions this year, but what I have read of them indicates that both displayed their share of pitched posturing, intra-party rage, a... [read more]
  • There are times in our Gospels when Jesus seems to single out those who are materially wealthy to demonstrate points in his parables. This has led many to characterize Jesus as a teacher who despised the rich and favored the poor. Let me be clear: Jesus came that he might draw the WHOLE world to him... [read more]
  • In this week's Gospel, we hear the Lucan version of the Lord's Prayer. While many of us are more familiar with the Matthean version (the one that actually starts “Our Father”), Luke's version is considered by many to be older and thus closer to the actual words of Jesus. Let's assume this to be true... [read more]
  • It will come as no surprise to many who know me that I identify with Martha in this story. Rather than extolling one sister over another, I tend to see this moment between Jesus and his friends as being more about the tendencies present within each one of us. I am a do-er. I have always struggled... [read more]
