          Change, new beginnings are rarely easy, are they? Every Christmas we hear the story of Jesus born in bad conditions with his Mom and Dad by his crib, surrounded by animals, shepherds and a multitude of angels. Then there’s that incredible star that is reported to have been seen by Wise men or Kings that led...

          Have you ever experienced a miracle? Have you ever been in the middle of something that was totally unexpected and inexplicable? It happened to us recently when, in the deep of winter, we ran out of heating oil and that turned our comfy home upside down and inside out which though uncomfortable, is a good th...

          Joy, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. Gathered here this morning we have seen the joy inherent in the lighting of the pink Advent Candle and the ebullient joy pouring out of the children during this exciting time of year. We have witnessed the joy of young parents bringing their second baby to be...

          In a little bit of detail I want to tell you some information about the traditional Advent Wreath. 

The Word: “Advent” derives from the Latin verb “ven” which means to come. Beginning on the Sunday nearest to the Feast of St. Andrew, one week after the Feast of Christ the King, and en...

          If you are anything like me, you are foggy from the Thanksgiving Feast a couple of days ago and all the unbelievable food and family that goes along with it. Our scripture passages for today foretold the events that went before us on Thursday, before we were all overfed like these verses 35 for I was hungry...

In honor of Veterans Day yesterday, please hear this prayer of remembrance. 

Remembering is our responsibility, O God. We remember women and men of the armed forces who suffer trauma and disabilities from war.

We remember the families of military personnel who wait, and who deal with the effects of war on their loved on...

          I have a confession to make. Saying goodbye is one of the things in life I dread. I just hate to say goodbye! I’d much rather say “see you later alligator” or “look forward to seeing you again soon!” or simply, “later!” I find saying goodbye awkward, painful and difficult to say and I can’t remember a time I...

          Ever wonder why God wouldn’t let Moses see God’s face in Exodus 33? Why would Moses die if he saw God’s face? What would be wrong with that? God showed God’s self to Adam & Eve, right? This is one of those weird biblical mysteries that no one can properly answer because we are taught that God can do anything...

          If you have ever seen the Samuel Beckett play “Waiting for Godot” you have experienced how tedious it is for human beings to have to wait. The play is all about the subject of waiting and waiting, endlessly. The frustration of the wait drives the two main characters in the play to repel one another, then out...

          Have you ever noticed there is a critic in every crowd? I don’t mean that in a negative way, but more as an observation of humanity. It’s just how people are and I get that, because sometimes I’m the critic in the room. It often seems for every new idea a person or group has to grow or change there is always...
