Rejoice in the Lord always

Today is the Third Sunday in Advent which is sometimes called Gaudete Sunday. The name means Rejoice, and it comes from the words of Philippians 4 that says, “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice.” The lesson from Isaiah carries the theme as well; “I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and delight in my people.” Advent is traditionally a period of fasting for the preparation of the coming of

I say to all: Watch

Jesus said, “And what I say to you I say to all: Watch.” from the Gospel according to St. Mark. (13:24-37) Happy New Year! Too early you say? Maybe for your iPhone’s calendar, but not for the Church Year. This is the first Sunday of Advent, the beginning of our Church Calendar year. The liturgical color has changed to Purple, and if you read some of the info out there

He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me besides still waters. He restores me soul.” Water is a fundamental part of of life. According to the USGS, the earth is 71% covered in water, and the oceans contain over 96% of all of the earth’s water. The rest is in the air as vapor, underground is aquifers, in

When the Lord is my Shepherd

This country is in the midst of a revolution. I don’t have to tell you that, really. You watch the news or perhaps read the news on the internet. Maybe you still read the newspaper. You know that the conservative values we have held here in the heartland are under assault. I’m not talking about politics, but I am talking about the erosion of traditional values that has slowly taken

Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life

A sermon for the Requiem Mass for Deacon Melody Crabb. The story of the Bible is a love story. It is a story of how our LORD has created this world for us to live in, and how he desires to have a relationship with us. This is the Good News, that God wants us to live in a covenant relationship with us, in faithfulness. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke

The Communion of Saints – All Saints Day

“After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no man could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb!”    From The Revelation to St. John the

On these two commandments…

Matthew 22:34-46, Jesus said, “On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” Love is at the same time the most discussed topic in history, and the most misunderstood topic in history. Some of you may remember the movie, “Love Story” starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal. It’s a tale of love between two young people who fall in love, get married, and then have to face the

Tithing and generosity

Matthew 22:15-22 Jesus said, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” In our Gospel reading today, there was some controversy over some of the teaching of Jesus. The Pharisees were trying to trap him saying something that would get him in hot water. His answer is simple; “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the

For Many are Called, but Few are Chosen

For many are called, but few are chosen. Matthew 22:1-14 This is a ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ parable, which is the sort that Jesus told when he wanted to make a very important point about life and death. If you have an interest in the afterlife, it’s important to take note. Jesus told many parables that involved the marriage customs of his day. This was something that was familiar to his

The Last shall be First, and First shall be Last

Matthew 21:28-32 Last Sunday we heard a parable from our Lord about the landowner and his workers. Remember the last line? “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.” Today we heard a parable about a man who had two sons. Which son did the will of his father? Those who were listening to him said, “The first.” Then Jesus lets them have it! He says,
