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.

Being in Good Shape for God - Second Sunday after the Epiphany - Year B - 18 January 2015 - 1000 am

The Very Rev Daniel P Richards asks the question whether we as disciples can give our whole being to God ... body, mind, and spirit as the vessel of the Holy Spirit?  He asks us to explore our willingness to get into shape and allow God to shape our body, mind, and spirit. Can we let God really work in us? Can we let Christ set us free without the burden of our sin, without the burden of our neighbor's sin to love them as God does as a daughter and son of God?

Proclaimed at the 1000 am worship community at Grace Episcopal Church, 341 Washington, Traverse City, Michigan, USA.

The Collect

Almighty God, whose Son our Savior Jesus Christ is the light of the world: Grant that your people, illumined by your Word and Sacraments, may shine with the radiance of Christ's glory, that he may be known, worshipped, and obeyed to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, now and forever. Amen
