Easter Sunday

Alleluia!  Jesus Christ is Risen!  He is risen indeed! Alleluia! Today is a joyous day for us, a day of total joy in the celebration of our Savior’s resurrection to new life.  And if it is such for us, we might imagine how the disciples felt that first Easter morning upon hearing the news of […]

What Grace Looks Like

Did you know that the Bible was written without chapters and verses?  Actually, the oldest copies in existence that we have, do not even have punctuation.

Die to yourself

In 1 Corinthians 15, today’s reading, Paul explains the doctrine of resurrection to those who doubted it. Clearly, from the questions they asked, Paul could see how shallow their reasoning was. Using the analogy of a seed, Paul explains the doctrine to them, and from this I would like us to draw lessons that are […]

Sermon on the plain

I met the most amazing man recently, a man who seems to embody, as much as a human can, the heart of Jesus.  This man loves the Lord, and so, loves God’s people, whoever they might be. While in Egypt for our Association of International Churches pastors’ conference we stayed three nights at Anaphora, a […]
