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, Pentecost XVI, Proper 19, Year C, 2010

Sermon on the paradox at the center of our Christian faith: we are sinners who are unworthy of God's grace, but we are also called into God's presence in Christ as God's children and heirs of the rule of God. Rev. Daniel then looks at the Book of Common Prayer as a sign in our Episcopal/Anglican tradition of every member's call to be an active and living part of worship, prayer, and the redemption of the world in Christ.

Exodus 32:7-14
Psalm 51:1-11
1 Timothy 1:12-17
Luke 15:1-10

Dear listener,

I want to admit that I have way oversimplified a lot of history in this sermon, and that there are some important critiques and omissions that should arise in the expert's mind. But I pray that you may listen past my errors to hear what the Spirit would have you hear.
