The Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost

August 5, 2018

This is the first of five Sundays with gospel readings from John chapter six. Today, Jesus fees thousands of people with five loaves and two fish. No matter how small our offerings seem, Jesus can use them to transform the world.

The Twelfth Sunday

after Pentecost

August 12, 2018

The people Jesus fed last week are looking for more, a sign of His power. As always in John's gospel when people want a sign, Jesus offers Himself. He is the bread come from heaven to give life to the world.

The Thirteenth Sunday

after Pentecost

August 19, 2018

Jesus says that the bread He gives for the life of the world is His flesh, and however eats this bread has eternal life now and in the future. In Ephesians, Paul tells us what this life Jesus gives looks like. We live in love, as Christ loves us and gave Himself up for us.

The Fourteenth Sunday

after Pentecost

August 26, 2018

Today Jesus invites us to eat His flesh and drink His blood. It is here in St. John's gospel that we find not an institution of the Lord's Supper, but an invitation to commune with our Lord in an intimate way, abiding in Him as He abides in us.

The Epiphany of Our Lord

January 5, 2020

Epiphany actually falls on January 6, but it is too important a festival to miss. It is a celebration  of the wise men finding the Christ child. But it's meaning for the world is what makes this festival significant. For here we see that the love and salvation of God is for the whole world, not just a few people long ago.

The Baptism of Our Lord

January 12, 2020

John the Baptist is once again on stage, not announcing the coming of the Messiah, but baptizing Him. Jesus' baptism sets the stage for His mission, as our own baptisms do for us. And as God declared Jesus to be His child, so God declares every baptized child His own. We are all part of God's family.

The Second Sunday after Epiphany

January 19, 2020

Once again we hear from John the Baptist, this time proclaiming Jesus the "Lamb of God Who takes away the sin of of the world."And when some of John's disciples hear and follow Jesus, they get the invitation to "Come and see." We are also invited to come along and see what God is about.

The Third Sunday after Epiphany

January 29, 2020

This time it is not the disciples who hear and follow, but Jesus Who sees and calls. Not the rich and famous, not the extraordinary or influential - just ordinary people who hear the call and follow. People like you and me, called by Jesus, equipped with the Spirit, and sent out to tell the Good News.
