The Prodigal Son and the Forgiving Father

Today, the fourth Sunday in Lent is known by some as Laetare Sunday, which in Latin means Rejoice. The word comes from the traditional mass introit, “Rejoice, O Jerusalem: and come together all you that love her: rejoice with joy, you that have been in sorrow: that you may exult, and be filled from the breasts of your consolation.” It is also known as Mothering Sunday in the UK, not

A Call to Repentance

“God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.” St. Paul wrote his two letters to the Corinthian Church to gently guide them into the truth of the Gospel. From his other writings to them we can discern that they were a bit unruly. They

Ash Wednesday

I read an article today about an Academic Paper written by a professor at the University of Cumbria in England. It is a rather alarming paper about climate change, global warming, and basically the collapse of society as we know it. It is sending some of its readers into therapy. Others plan to move to the country to get closer to the land in order to survive. This professor thinks

The Ordination of a Deacon

Luke 22:24 A dispute also arose among the disciples, which of them was to be regarded as the greatest. 25 And he said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and those in authority over them are called benefactors. 26 But not so with you; rather let the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as one who serves. 27 For which is

Love your enemies

There is a saying I have heard more than a few times. “I don’t get mad. I get even.” Have you heard that one? In this crazy society where every kind of nonsense plays out in the broadcast media and on social media, the craving for revenge is just another news day. And for some really weird reason people want to become victims so bad that they will arrange it

The Sermon on the Plain

Luke 6:17-26 The Gospel we heard today begins on a level place, sometimes called the Plain. Earlier in this chapter, we heard that Jesus had gone to a mountain to pray, and had called his disciples, whom he also designated his Apostles. As would become the norm, a large crowd gathered around Jesus. He taught them, and he healed them. In fact so many were trying to touch him that

Fishing for people

Luke 5:1-11 I am not much of a fisherman. I have tried a few times, and while I enjoy being on the water, in a boat, with someone who is a good fisherman, I have a hard time seeing the joy in it. I have a couple of friends who really enjoy it. One has taken me out for the day, and I almost caught one fish. I enjoyed the

Make love your aim

1 Corinthians 14:12b-20 This is an exciting day! Today we get to welcome a new Christian into our fellowship. And this is a wonderful time of year to do just that. We have just recently celebrated the birthday of Jesus, and his baptism, and his revelation to the world. Baptism is the sacrament of New Birth, that cleanses us from the stain of original sin, and regenerates us into the

The wedding at Cana

John 2:1-11 This is the first miracle of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel according to St. John. The first chapter established that Jesus is the Word made flesh, God incarnate. He then proceeds to call disciples to himself and begin his ministry. The story we heard today begins with the words, “On the third day…” This is a hint of the greatest miracle to come, his resurrection on the

The Baptism of our Lord Jesus

Today we commemorate the Baptism of our Lord Jesus. Why did Jesus need to be baptized? He certainly had no sin to be cleansed. He knew that he was one with God the Father and God the Spirit. In fact, we know from the Scripture we heard this morning that the Father claimed him and pronounced his pleasure in his Son: In verse 22, we read, “…the Holy Spirit descended
