“God finds us and is revealed to us in the ordinary of our lives – in our work, in our struggles, indeed in our eating.”

 

Yes, we see and feel God’s presence when we gather for worship on Sunday. However, as the Rev. Patrick Keyser reminds us, God is made known to us in all aspects of our lives.

“We must recognize that there are issues that can only be addressed when there's a great leap of faith.”

After hearing the news of Jesus’s resurrection, the disciples hid behind closed and locked doors. The Rev. Canon Leonard L. Hamlin, Sr. asked us on Sunday to be transformed by the resurrection – to make an effort to understand, love and show our neighbors grace.

"Go to the places where love is needed most with whatever love you have to give–that’s resurrection in you. Wherever there is joy, do your best to celebrate and protect it, even if it’s not yours–that’s resurrection working in you."

As Bishop Budde reminded us on Easter Sunday, we can be part of God's resurrection work.

April 15, 2022

"As you drink from the cup of salvation tonight, and on Holy Saturday and Easter, know that the cup of salvation is filled with God’s unconditional love for you. Jesus’ death was the cost of the love that fills your cup and mine forever more. Drink it to the dregs and be saved."

The Rev. Canon Dana Colley Corsello preached on Maundy Thursday, perfectly setting the tone for the Paschal Triduum.

March 29, 2022

“Open your heart to the God who wishes to give you much more than God demands from you.”

How do you view God? What is God’s personality? Does your understanding of God judge you or love you?

As we move into the last few weeks of Lent, Dean Randy Hollerith asks us to consider imagining a loving and forgiving God, and to carry that love to others in our lives.

March 25, 2022

“God wants us to do exactly what Jesus did with us, and our responsibility as followers of Jesus is to tend to others with the same compassion and intent.”

Repentance is not an expression of regret. It’s not a simple “I’m sorry” or a promise to do better. The Rev. Canon Rose Duncan tells us that true repentance is a reorientation and change of heart.
