In God’s Time

We come back to this church year in and year out, Sunday after Sunday, to return to the story of God’s relentless love. We come here to remember that all the stories our world wants to hand us, stories that we are not enough, that we don’t have enough, all those stories will fade away.

St Francis and Spirituality For The Ecological Crisis

On St. Francis Day 2022, I preached a sermon looking at the ecological crisis. In order to overcome this moment, we will need prayer and a deeper and broader sense of what Spirituality means.

Playing Catch Up with the Spirit

God’s Spirit falls on all the people the disciples would have despised. This movement of God is much bigger, and wider, and more beautifully diverse than Jesus’ followers could have imagined. God’s love knows no human boundaries. The early church was always playing catch up. That is the story of Acts, and that frankly is the story of the church today. God’s Spirit continues to invite us out beyond where we are comfortable, to join in the beautiful work of God’s expansive love. We are to receive the Spirit, and the people the Spirit sends us, as a gift.
