Grace: It's Our Way of Life

As Episcopal Christians we
Worship at home daily and together weekly;
Study the Scriptures, our tradition, and what it means to be a disciple today;
Serve our families, our parish, and our world in the name of Christ.

Everything we do is done with an ethic of Welcome
because we are only here by Grace.

Sermon, Advent II, Year C, 2009

Repent, Sinners! Oh, and happy Advent. It is true that all of us need repentance, but why is it that the New Testament seems to put a juxtaposition between John's baptism of repentance and Jesus' baptism of the Holy Spirit? They do go together, but one prepares the way for the other. But there is only one baptism (One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism.) So somehow they work together. It makes more sense in real life than in theology.
