Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost

For many are called, but few are chosen. Matthew 22:1-14 This is a ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ parable, which is the sort that Jesus told when he wanted to make a very important point about life and death. If you have an interest in the afterlife, it’s important to take note. Jesus told many parables that involved the marriage customs of his day. This was something that was familiar to his

Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Matthew 21:33-43 In today’s parable we heard about a landowner who planted a vineyard and leased to some tenants. These tenants were happy to do the work, in the understanding that they would reap some of the fruit. It turns out they wanted all of the fruit, and the vineyard, too! The landowner had sent his servants to collect the harvest, but it did not turn out so well with

Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Matthew 21:28-32 Last Sunday we heard a parable from our Lord about the landowner and his workers. Remember the last line? “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.” Today we heard a parable about a man who had two sons. Which son did the will of his father? Those who were listening to him said, “The first.” Then Jesus lets them have it! He says,

Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost

Today we heard another parable about the kingdom of heaven. Jesus was fond of using parables to communicate with his disciples. Some listened and understood what he was getting at, but most of his hearers must have thought he was a little kooky. This is one of those that made no sense to those with a mind for business. The land owner was hiring laborers all day long to work

Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost

These readings about forgiveness resonated with me today. So many stories I read have something to do with anger and the lack forgiveness. Why is it so hard to forgive? I understand that there are some resentments that have piled up over generations of people. People with power have abused the powerless. This is nothing new of course. Since Cain killed Abel there have been those who have killed others

Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost

We are living in a time of great conflict, which of course is no news to you, but it affects all of us. St. Paul wrote: “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” I don’t know about you, but I hate conflict. I go out of my way to avoid it. I know that is not always a good thing. Sometimes you have to confront things

Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost

“For the Son of Man is to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay everyone for what has been done.” If you will recall from last week, I talked about St. Peter, or Rocky, as my NT professor liked to call him. Some like to put him on a pedestal, but it is obvious from our studies of the Bible that St.

Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Matthew 16:13-20 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it.  This verse describes two things. One is the giving of the nickname of Peter to Simon, and the description of the foundation of the Church. Now, you can call me biased if you like, because I’m an Anglican Catholic Priest, but this

Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost

“May God be merciful to us and bless us,” from Psalm 67 A common thread of the readings today is the mercy of God. The reading from the prophet Isaiah does not mention the word itself, but the message is that the LORD will be merciful to all who will join him and hold fast his covenant. All who keep sabbath (Saturday), and do not profane it, and hold fast

Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost

Jesus spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.” Have you ever taken a boat ride? I bet you have. I never have been a big fan of boats, but I know some people are. Some people like to ride in small boats, and some in boats the size of a small city. I have been aboard a few sail boats, and I suppose

    • Stations of the CrossStations of the CrossTime: 6:00 pm
      Also known as "way of the cross" or "via crucis" this devotion consists of 14 stations, taken both from Scripture and tradition, since the 18th century when the Church officially approved the now common Lenten practice. Through the stations, we are able to spiritually journey to the via dolorosa (Latin for "way of sorrows" or "way of suffering"). Beginning with Christ's condemnation all the way to his body being laid in the tomb, each "station" allows us to pray and reflect in prayer. Afterwards we meet in the Parish Hall for a Lenten study and meal.
