God Will Heal

Homily for 19 Trinity October 27, 2019 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Text: Jeremiah 30:12-22 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of our hearts be always acceptable in thy sight, O Lord our strength and our redeemer. Amen. This morning Jeremiah paints a picture of stark hopelessness in the first four verses of our reading. A picture that would lead anyone to despondency if it were addressed to them.

There are three reasons that come to mind – first the providence of God is one reason we may suffer – in the moment of suffering we may not know why things are as hard as they ar

Wholly for Christ

A Homily for 18 Trinity, 2019 October 20, 2019 All Saints Prescott, AZ Text: Amos 8:4-12 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of our hearts be always acceptable in thy sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer.

In most cases they remember Graduation, Marriage, the birth of children, or Retirement from work. Martha and Mary in today’s Gospel probably added another day to this list, and that day would outdistance any other. At first, we see them in deep sorrow and desperation as St. John describes their world with one simple sentence: “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” (Jn. 11:21) In their grief, Jesus ha

Angels and Demons

A Homily for Michaelmas September 29, 2019 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Topical sermon – Angels and demons Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of our hearts be always acceptable in thy sight, O Lord our strength and our redeemer.Amen. There was once a monk who was struggling with temptation. He found that he was no longer able to stay in his cell and he went to his superior and sought his advice. His superior told him to return to his cell. But he refused, saying “father, I cannot!” Then his superior took the monk out onto the terrace and said to him “look towards the west.” He looked and saw hoards of demons standing about and making noise as though preparing for an att
