FEAR NOT!

For the past three weeks here, we’ve been listening to the angels of Christmas. First  actually before he appears to Mary  the angel Gabriel appears to Jesus’ uncle Zechariah with the good news that he and his wife Elizabeth, though they are VERY old, will have the son they have longed for their…

24th Sunday after Pentecost

Perhaps you’ve heard the one about the burglar, who late one night, broke into a house that he thought was empty. He tiptoed through the living room but suddenly he froze in his tracks when he heard a loud voice say, “Jesus is watching you.” Silence returned to the house, so the burglar crept forward again. “Jesus is watching you,” the voice…

All Saints Day

John 11:32-44 Here’s one many of us grew up with: Jesus Wept Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep. And if I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take. But the one my mother-in-law made in needlepoint for Sophia says this: Now I lay me down to sleep, I…

Resurrection Matters

There seemed to be a curious noise all around them… A strange, sweet, rustling, chattering noise… It was the noise of running water. All around them, though out of sight, there were streams chattering, murmuring, splashing… And his heart gave a great leap (though he hardly knew why) when he realized that the frost was over. And much nearer there was a…

Witness to the Spirit of God – Trust in God

I am here today to give witness to the spirit of God through an experience I had on December 28 , which so greatly impacted me that when I got home I sat down and typed this letter. Just for the record, I have never done that or this before. I should tell you first that I do not believe in “coincidences.” Those…
