The Incarnation is the Reason for the Season

A Meditation for Christmas Day December 25, 2019 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Text: John 1:14 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. Our Gospel lesson for this morning packs a heavy theological punch. While St. Luke’s account of the birth of Christ gives us rich historical detail, St. John tells us of Christ’s divinity, shows us the real reason to celebrate this and every Christmas. For we learn much from Luke, but here we see that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. The last verse i

That Low Estate

December 24, 2019 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Text: Luke 2:1-14 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. Our presiding bishop wrote to all the clergy this week to wish us a merry Christmas and to remind us of a few things. As clergy and faithful Christians we have a tendency to become tremendously negative about the secularization of Christmas, and of course this tendency highly tempting, yet he rightly observes that we all adopt some of the secular leanings of a modern Christmas. I remember a few years ago when Christmas fell on Sunday and several, non-Anglican, churches flat out ca

Hope in the Coming

A Homily for Advent IV December 22, 2019 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Text: Luke 3:1-17 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. I found my mind wandering to the seconding coming this past week, I have a friend who works with those who are in the worst estate, primarily in Africa, but also victims of violence in America. He talks often of longing for Christ’s return. Usually, I have a hard time sympathizing with him, I have goals, and hopes, and dreams, after all, and I want them to come true. But something about this week made that whole perspective shift. I think it was the juxtapos

Rejoice In The Lord, Oh Ye Righteous

A Homily for Advent 3 December 15, 2019 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ 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. Rejoice in the Lord, oh you righteous. This past week a beautiful friend of mine went to her eternal rest. I’ve been thinking a lot about her the past few days. She was like very few others I have known in this life. She radiated joy and kindness with the way in which she lived. There are few people who I remember the first time I met them, and yet, my memory of meeting her is vivid and one of my most pleasant, and laughter filled first encounters. She saw God’s love and procl

On The Incarnation

A Homily for Advent 2 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ December 8, 2019 Text: Luke 1:26-56 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. One of the things that I truly love about our town are the Christmas time festivities. The city really does pull out all the stops, it is beautiful, and amazing, and we are so fortunate and rich to live in such a place. Last night, I stood on the court house square with a handful of friends, and probably several thousand others in the drizzling rain, as a man read the same passage of the Gospels According to St. Luke which we read this morning, the reading la
