How Then Shall We Live?

A Homily for Lent V – Passion Sunday March 29, 2020 All Saints Anglican Church – Prescott, AZ Text: Luke 20:9-18 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. Pride is a strange beast to wrestle with. Of the sins we are warned against repeatedly in scripture pride seems to be the most slippery and toughest to really nail down. Anger, lust, greed, these are evident in our hearts when we give them quarter, but sometimes pride can manifest itself in false-humility, or pop-up like a game of whack-a-mole where you overcome one form and turn around to find it waving to you in some other part of your heart.

If God Is For Us, Who Can Be Against Us?

A Homily for Lent IV March 22, 2020 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Text: Romans 8:31-38 My beloved friends – this week has been one of intense emotion, confusion, and uncertainty for many. I have had the privilege of preaching in National Parks, in the basement of buildings, in apartments, in country churches and city churches. I have been given such a gift – but this is the first time that I’ve ever preached to a virtually empty building, and I am unsure how to do this. Today – I will take a more casual approach, and I hope that is okay. If it ends up being weird or awkward, I will adjust next week. Before I start my sermon I want thank all the people who made today come together

One Way or The Other

ONE WAY OR THE OTHER “He that is not with me is against me.” (Lk 11:23) [All Saints, Prescott, AZ, Lent 3, 15 March 2020] In today’s Gospel Jesus expelled a demon from a mute person, and some people witnessing this miracle were amazed. Other people, however, challenged Jesus by putting Him in league with Satan, while a third group put Christ to the test by demanding a sign from heaven. All three groups missed the point of the miracle, and they missed the warning that, when Satan returns, he will do so with a vengeance. In fact, his next visit will be worse than the first. They also missed the point that Christ does not have to validate His divinity by working miracles, because miracles are n

A Better Way

A Homily for Lent II March 8, 2020 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Text: Matthew 5:27-37 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. Every Lent I set up for myself these incredibly high standards – “this Lent, I think to myself, I’m going to do a million things and become super awesome,” and on the surface I tell myself that it is for the sake of my soul, for the stripping away of all that is not of God. But I think deep down inside I want to be what St. Paul calls a super-apostle. A mocking term for those who added to the gospel of Jesus Christ at the church in Corinth. This year was reall

The Temptation or Christ

A Homily for Lent 1 March 1, 2020 All Saints Anglican Church, Prescott, AZ Text: Matthew 4:1-11 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. It was a perfect day, like any other day, and they were tending to the garden, pruning branches, fertilizing the roots, and assuring all the plants had enough water when the serpent walked up, beautiful and perfect in every way. She liked the serpent, she always found him to be pretty, and he was delightfully clever. But that day he looked into her eyes and said something that changed the world forever. It wasn’t that he said a lot, or even made any sort of perv
