All things have been created through, and for God. God is before all things, and in God all things hold together. God, is continually creating, and we, God’s creations are continually in a state of transition, growing, changing, and adapting to our world. Building strong, supportive relationships will help us adapt to change. If we […]

This past week, I was offered a chance to take my 15-year-old goddaughter niece to see the musical “Hamilton.” It seems her father made a mistake on the date when buying a pair of tickets, so he couldn’t take her as planned. And she REALLY wanted to see this show. It wasn’t entirely convenient for […]

In the Name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen. “Swing Low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home. Swing low, sweet chariot, comin’ for to carry me home.” The words of this popular spiritual were written before the Civil war by Wallace Willis, a former slave. Inspired by the story of Elijah […]

June 23, 2019 Mind over Bacon

If we thought about it, we might realize how vulnerable our food supply is. It seems like every few months there is a recall on something. Romaine Lettuce, peppers, lettuce again, fruits, peanut butter, the list goes on. We may be advanced, but in many ways our supply chains are as vulnerable as there where […]

June 9, 2019 We Are All Together

I cannot even imagine! Here is Jesus, Died, risen, hanging out with the disciples, and out of the blue, Phillip says to Jesus, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” Think about that for a moment… show us the Father, and we will be satisfied? I would love to know what Jesus […]

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” These familiar words are taken from the farewell discourse of Jesus to his disciples, the night before he was crucified. […]

May 19, 2019 A Saint Like You and Me

Good morning. First thought: today’s Gospel reading from John may be one of the most important messages in the Bible on Christian daily living. Second thought: if one wants to think about the application of scripture to life today, it really helps to have an example. So, this morning, I want to talk about seeing […]

May 12, 2019 Follow Me

What does it mean to follow? To follow means to come after someone, to move behind in the same direction. Have you ever met up with a group of people at one place, and then had to caravan to another venue? This often happens at weddings and out of town events where someone local leads […]

May 5, 2019 The Victory of God

Well, my brothers and sisters, today is my last day with you as your seminarian. As such, this is my last sermon at Holy Cross. And, while there are several good readings to choose from on this occasion, I would be remiss if I left this place without having preached on the book of Revelation. […]

April 18, 2019 All About the Bling

What is it that we humans love more than anything? Bling! I love bling. I think most of us do, even if some do not admit it. We love shiny things, things that sparkle and spark our imagination. Gold and glitter, silver bells, when we celebrate, we decorate with brightness, and color, and bling. We […]
