Rector’s Weekly Message (Page 2)

What is Freedom?

Freedom has become an important topic during the weeks and months of pandemic shutdown. Our freedom to assemble and freedom to worship have been restricted. Businesses that have been closed are experiencing a loss of economic freedom. We are keenly aware of the various ways we have lost our freedom and we are more in need of the true freedom offered by…

An Invitation to Communion

One of my favorite verses in scripture is Acts 2:42: [They] devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. This is what the first followers of Jesus did. This is what we do even now. As with a lot of things, we will have to be a little creative…

Is Christ Behind that Mask?

Alleluia, Christ is Risen!

In my Easter sermon I talked about the strange experience of celebrating the resurrection in the middle of a pandemic.

Resurrection Delayed

First, A Time of Grief A few days ago, as I was working at home, I experienced a wave of tiredness, and then a wave of sadness. I sat with those feelings for a moment in prayer and realized that what I was experiencing was grief. I miss being at the church. I miss worshipping…
