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 IV, 2 February 2014 - The God of the Ledger and the Lap of Abba

Sermon on crawling into the lap of God rather than quivering under the stare of the God of the Ledger. A simple place where explore the need to remember what God accomplished in Jesus, setting us free from the accounting of sins so that we can offer forgiveness of sins and the healing of sin. Simeon got it. Anna got it. I forget sometimes. So daily I sing Simeon's Song, the Nunc Dimitis, and every week we remember at the Table.

Malachi 3:1-4
Hebrews 2:14-18
Luke 2:22-40
Psalm 84 

The Collect
Almighty and everliving God, we humbly pray that, as your only-begotten Son was this day presented in the temple, so we may be presented to you with pure and clean hearts by Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
