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.

Courage and Humility - Sermon, Easter V, Year A, 2011

Sermon in which the Very Rev. Daniel P. Richards continues to look at the virtues: this time courage and humility. If you want to test whether it is courage ask Does this require self-sacrifice or not. If you want to know if it is humility ask Is this the truth? Courage without self-sacrifice is not from the heart of a Christian. Humility without truth is not real. Christ calls us to a way that demands courage. If we are to be a royal priesthood, all of us need to show up and be great.
