Jesus said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” One of my favorite days occurred just recently. It was the last Friday in May. What day was it, you might ask? The last day of school! I have different reasons for liking that day now than I had many years ago. This year, the last day of school means that our street gets ver...

If you grew up in the North Texas area, you most likely went to Six Flags over Texas a time or two. Being from Ft. Worth, I went several times a year when I was young. One of my favorite rides was LaSalle’s Riverboat Ride. That was one of the original rides of the park, which opened in 1961, and it’s last trip was in 1982. LaSalle was a French explorer who traveled most of the major waterways of this country, and he called the Trinity River, t...

On Pentecost Sunday, I attended service at St. Vincent’s Cathedral in order to hear Bp. Fanuel Magangani of Northern Malawi preach. He is such a Godly man, and it was a joy to listen to him. The Saturday before, the World Mission Committee member of the Malawi sub-committee met with the bishop for a day of prayer, reflection, and planning. We will be celebrating twenty years of partnership between our diocese and the Diocese of Northern Malawi...

Who do you say I am?

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered, “The Messiah of God.” From the Gospel of St. Luke. Jesus was a controversial person in Jerusalem. He had done things no other prophet had done since Elijah. He healed the centurion’s servant. He raised the widow’s son from the dead. When he was invited to the house of Simon the Pharisee, he allowed a woman, a notorious sinner to bathe his feet wi...

Faith, Love and Forgiveness
Uncategorized / June 12, 2016

Luke 7:36-50 Jesus he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” This story shows us the difference between miserly and extravagant love. Simon, a Pharisee who invited Jesus to dinner probably did so out of curiosity. He had likely heard of Jesus’ teaching, and how he healed the servant of the centurion, and raised the widow’s son who had died. So perhaps he had to see for himself who Jesus was, and if an...
