Humbling Knowing

A Homily for Christmas Eve December 24, 2017 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Text: Luke 2:1-14 Let the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be alway acceptable in thy sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer. Amen. The account of Christ's birth given in St. Luke's gospel is the account that we all love, it paints an idyllic vision of the heavy-laden mother, rejected by the world, huddled with her husband to be in the stall of a stable. We imagine simple shepherds gathered around a fire, hunkered down for the night while their sheep sleep or bay quietly in the background, and then the bursting forth of glory, the overwhelming joy of the Angels, grandiose compared to the h

The Unexpected Savior

A Homily for Advent IV All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott AZ December 24, 2017 Text: Isaiah 40:1-11 Let the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be alway acceptable in thy sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer. Amen This year is a peculiar year as Christmas Eve is tonight, falling on the fourth Sunday of Advent. It is always a little overwhelming when we have so much packed into one day. Advent ends abruptly and we go from penitential preparation, to preparing our church for Christmas Day, to rejoicing for the coming of the Lord into the world in less than 12 hours. This season of Advent we have been focused on what it is to prepare our hearts, souls, and minds for the comin

What is Hope?

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be always acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, our strength and our redeemer. (Ps 19:14) “Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?” (Matt 11:3) [3rd Sunday of Advent, All Saints, Prescott, AZ, 17 Dec 2017] Today we observe the Third Sunday of Advent, filling us with a sense that time is getting shorter and shorter before we celebrate Our Savior’s Birthday. Today we are still waiting. Advent is, after all, the season of waiting … and hoping … and wishing for a sign that God does indeed love us and that God is in control of our lives. The season of Advent invites us to concentrate on things other than earthly issues, to work

Loving God with Our Minds

A Homily For Advent 1 December 10, 2017 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Text: Romans 15:4-7 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be always acceptable in thy sight, O Lord my strength and redeemer. Amen The Advent call is that our hearts and minds would be conformed to the Love of God and in that we would learn to Love the Lord with our whole selves and that we would love our neighbors selflessly. We are called to make straight our ways, to let God work in the desert that is our heart. Last week, we talked about returning to love the Lord, that even if you’ve stumbled and fallen along the way, that He calls us back to him again, and again. This calling draws us de

Preparing our Hearts and Minds for Christ

A Homily for Advent ! December 3, 2017 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Text: Romans 13:8-14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be always acceptable in thy sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer. Amen For this Advent, I picked the verse Isaiah 40:3 as our seasonal verse. “A voice cries: ‘In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord; make straight a desert highway for our God.’” You’ll notice that it is written on our announcement board in the entranceway, on the handy bookmark you got this morning, and on the front of your bulletin. It is one of the sentences of scriptures that we use as a call to worship in Morning Prayer, throughout the season. It is a cal
