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, Epiphany II, Year B, 15 Jan 2012 - Listening, Laughing, and Being Attuned

Young Samuel finds the high priest Eli asleep in the temple

Sermon in which we are reminded to stop and take the time to listen to God, deep listening that goes beyond the laundry list and chit-chat prayers, that not all laughter is good and how to look for what is really wise and good, and finally that God is calling deep within us if we are attuned.

Psalm 139:1-5, 12-17
