Stole Presentation to Seminarian Taylor Devine
This is the presentation of a stole to seminarian Taylor Devine.
“Adopted”, Fr Mark Michael, (12/31/17)
12/31/17: “Adopted.” Saint Paul doesn’t name his earthly father, because like all believers in Christ he has true and enduring place in the one family of God
“The Christmas Cow”, Fr Mark Michael (12/24/17)
12/24/17: “The Christmas Cow.” The cow belongs in the manger scene because it points back to an ancient hope: that God would come closer and change beasts back into human beings.
“Perishing Words”, Fr Mark Michael (12/17/17)
12/17/17: “Perishing Words.” The truth spoken with courage is powerful, as contemporary events reveal. But John the Baptist shows that even the most powerful words can only prepare the way for the real change that comes through the grace revealed in Jesus.
“Can You See?” Father Mac Stewart (12/10/17)
Advent 1 – 12/3/2017, Rev Sally Slater
Reverend Sally Slater discusses driving in the DC area: Putting on your emergency flashers almost always causes the impatient and aggressive driver who is tailgating you to slow down and back off. Advent is God’s way of putting on his flashers and reminding us to slow down and prepare for the coming of Jesus.
“Be Prepared” Father Mac Stewart (11/12/2017)
Father Mac Stewart’s sermon from November 12, 2017 entitled “Be Prepared: Keeping your oil well-stocked for the bridegroom”
“Not Changing the World”, Fr Mark Michael (11/26/17)
“Not Changing the World.” Jesus is the great king, who will change all things at his return in glory. We honor him in acts of humble mercy, being present to the suffering in love.
