Sunflowers of Repentance

Sunflowers of Repentance

At the 9 o’clock service today, we had the Christmas pageant with over 90 children—which means about 40 angels, 30 lambs and 10 shepherds. A few angels couldn’t keep their wings on and a star adamantly didn’t want to wear her star on her head. In years past, we have had an occasional Ninja warrior […]

Everyone Is Just Waiting

Everyone Is Just Waiting

This past week I heard about some holiday gathering where you could bring your kids to sit not just on Santa’s lap, but on the Grinch’s lap too. That’s kind of funny. Someone tweeted something witty about the villain of Hooville: “Just so we’re clear, the Grinch never hated Christmas. He hated people, which is […]

What About the Goats?

What About the Goats?

When I was in seminary I interned at a church, and after a few months they gave me my first opportunity to preach. Just to be sure they weren’t opening themselves up to something terrible coming out of their pulpit, they checked in on my sermon prep a few times a week for almost a […]

All Things Come of Thee

All Things Come of Thee

Welcome to Christ Church on this beautiful Thanksgiving morning. What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving Day?  I’m thankful for the great privilege I had of baptizing the great grandchildren of Connie, a dear parishioner here at Christ Church earlier this morning. I also had the privilege of burying their great grandfather, Woody, several years […]

This Is Us

This Is Us

Now that the days are getting shorter, darker and colder, I start a sort of hibernation routine— reading, watching and eating—all inside. Because of Netflix and Hulu, I haven’t had to watch network television for years. I just sit down when I’m ready and watch a show. That all changed with This Is Us—a show […]

On the Other Side of Sleep

On the Other Side of Sleep

Today is All Saint’s Sunday. I love All Saint’s Sunday for a number of reasons. The weather is usually beautiful and the landscape picturesque at this time of year. We always have lots of baptisms, which are hopeful for all of us. We’ve even got one at the 7:45 service this year! The hymns we […]
