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, First Sunday of Advent and Baptisms, Year C, 2 December 2012

Sermon about learning to see rightly with the prophets through their bracing honesty to the work of God in the world, in the midst of wars and rumours of wars, hurricanes, and the commercial Christmore celebration.  Also preparation for the Grace Community to vow again to raise these three boys in the Christian faith. 

Van Jongen, Henri Richards, and Elliot Mittelstaedt

Jeremiah 33:14-16
Psalm 25:1-9
1 Thessalonians 3:9-13
Luke 21:25-36

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
