When Darkness Came and the Earth Shook | The Rev. Susan E. Hill, Associate Rector

Well, we’ve had a remarkable last couple of weeks. After a deep Holy Week (including a quick visit from the fire department on Palm Sunday!) and a joyous Easter, we experienced both a 4.7 magnitude earthquake and a solar eclipse! Sure, some of us might not have actually felt the earthquake, and depending on where you were the eclipse was partial and sometimes covered by clouds ─ but both natural events still happened. And they affected us, whether we realized it or not….

But Wait, There’s More! | The Rev. Dr. Anna S. Pearson, Rector

Some years ago, there was a story making the rounds about a man named Robert Liebowitz. A 60 -year-old single father of five, he had been struggling with kidney disease since he was 10 years old. Eventually he was told that he would need dialysis three times a week to survive, and a transplant to live. Because of his blood type (“O”), and the fact that some of his children were also contending with kidney disease, none of them could donate one of their kidneys to their father….

What Christ Has Done For Us | The Rev. Robert A. Jacobs, Deacon

Easter Sunday- the day we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

A time when Alleluias fill the air and we say, ALLELUIA!, CHRIST IS RESIN, THE LORD IS RISEN INDEED, ALLELUIA!

Easter morning revealed a divine power that can transform our lives from the inside out. The hope of the resurrection is that even though we can’t change ourselves, we can be changed….

Essay on Adam
By Robert Bringhurst

There are five possibilities. One: Adam fell.
Two: he was pushed. Three: he jumped. Four:
he only looked over the edge, and one look silenced him.
Five: nothing worth mentioning happened to Adam.

The first, that he fell, is too simple. The fourth,
fear, we have tried and found useless. The fifth,
nothing happened, is dull. The choice is between:
he jumped or was pushed. And the difference between these

is only an issue of whether the demons
work from the inside out or from the outside
in: the one
theological question….

Just Saying No | The Rev. Dr. Anna S. Pearson, Rector

We are deep in the heart of Lent, and while this Sunday is often referred to as “refreshment Sunday,” there is still a way to go before Easter arrives. Even with the Sunday “Little Easter” reprieves from Lent, and even with the hopeful signs of longer days and warmer temperatures, the time between Ash Wednesday and our celebration of the Resurrection is long, long, long….

Cleansing | The Rev. Robert A. Jacobs, Deacon

God wants us to be inwardly genuine and penitent in our worship.

Just as Jesus cleansed the temple we have to take an internal inventory of where we stand. As we know, taking an internal inventory of our own lives is not comfortable is it?

We all know that we have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God.

We do not like taking those kinds of inventories because we might not always like what we find within ourselves….
