The Trinity – not just a river in Texas

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

Pentecost Sunday

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

He Has Ascended into Heaven

This past Thursday was the Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord. It is a Principal Feast in our calendar, which means it ranks right up there with Easter and Christmas Day. In fact there are seven Principal Feasts listed in our calendar. Can you name them? Easter Day Ascension Day The Day of Pentecost Trinity Sunday Trinity Sunday All Saints’ Day Christmas Day The Eiphany Ascension Day is always

Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except by me.”

“Thomas said to Jesus, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”… from the Gospel according to St. John. Sometime during my high school years, I started to rebel against what I saw as the Establishment, which mostly meant my

I came that they may have Life

Jesus said, “Very truly, I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep.” In this part of the world, we know about cattle. I read about the recent dedication of a monument to Capt. John T. Lytle, who is recognized as the first to drive a herd of 3500 Longhorn cattle from South Texas to Fort Robinson, Nebraska, in 1874, blazing what is now known as the Great Western

He had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread

Laurie and I travel so much that our theme song is “On the Road Again,” by Willie Nelson. Every time we load up and head for Grapevine, one of us starts singing it. We decided we needed something a little bigger for hauling so much stuff back and forth, so we bought an older Ford Expedition. When I was checking out the radio, I noticed that it had a jukebox

The Ministry of Reconciliation

This Sunday has a few names in our tradition. Our Sunday Lectionary calls it the Second Sunday of Easter. That’s because last Sunday was technically the First Sunday of Easter, or Eastertide, meaning the time or season of Easter. But that has been only since 1970. Before that it was called the First Sunday after Easter. Some people call this Low Sunday, because the attendance is typically lower than last

The Magic of Easter

Alleluia! Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia! Tonight we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from death and grave to eternal life. But, for many people, Easter means so much more. As I was watching television earlier today, I saw an ad for a Golden Easter Bunny made of chocolate. The tag line was something about the Magic of Easter. It occurs to me that

Palm Sunday

Today is Palm Sunday, but you will notice in your bulletin it has two names. “The Sunday of the Passion: Palm Sunday” This because there are two distinct parts to our celebration today. The first being a commemoration of the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem.

Lent 5

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” From St. Paul’s letter to the Romans. St. Paul’s letter to the Romans is considered one of the greatest books in the Bible. Martin Luther described it as “the chief book in the New Testament and the purest gospel.” John Knox, a modern American professor, says that it is
