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 III, Year A, 15 December 2013 10a Learning To Walk Vertical While Pregnant

Sermon on expectations and hopes as a people of God.  We are the place where the Spirit resides, the hope of the prophets we have seen in our own day.  But when the crisis comes we have to maintain our faith, our trust in the process of God's creation and new creation in us.

Always we begin again.  

Isaiah 35:1-10
James 5:7-10
Matthew 11:2-11
Psalm 146:4-9

The Collect
Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
