Mark 9:30-37

Through our baptism we are all called. Not to lofty positions worth of statues upon our death, but to follow the humble servitude of Jesus Christ.

We are Called

The beginning of Stewardship Season kicks off with ways we are all called to do the work of Christ.

Mark 7:24-37

On this day, we join with our sisters and brothers in the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church by participating in “Confession, Repentance, and Commitment to End Racism Sunday.” We remember our baptismal covenant, to respect the dignity of all people, and to love our neighbor as ourselves

Proper 17B
Song of Solomon 2:8-13, Psalm 45:1-2, 7-10, Mark 7:1-18, 14-15, 21-23

The collect for today mentions “true” religion? What does that mean? As Episcopalians, how to we keep from being secret pharisees, living with all ritual and no heart? How do we challenge ourselves to act, worship, and live in ways which are full of heart, authentic, and true?

Grace like rain falls from the sky in forms of manna and the son of man. May grace like rain form to all the dark crevices of our lives.

Bread of Life

2 Samuel 11:26-12:13, Ephesians 4:1-16, John 6:24-35

For the early followers, bread was everything. They worked to be fed. Jesus offers food in the form of gifts to be received, not that which is worked for. Once we accept those gifts, new life awaits.

Not in a Box

Not in a Box
We all have dwelling places to which we expect God to be, but we can’t place God in a box. God is forever moving, going to heal and be with those who need it in the world.
