Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Easter Vigil (St Bart’s) & Easter Baptism (St Francis) – 2018

Last night at St Bartholomew’s we looked into the OT lessons of Abraham, Moses, and Ezekiel and the Gospel as a framework for the meaning of the vigil and renewing our baptismal vows.

 

This morning at St Francis, with the baptism of Nolan Rose, we recalled how the messages proclaimed by Sts. Peter, Paul, and Mary Magdalene were fulfilled in Christ and in us in the sacrament of baptism.

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Good Friday – 2018

Sharing Holy Week services this week with our friends at Calvary United Methodist is such a blessing! At their church on Good Friday, we considered what it means to be stray sheep and to have the Lamb of God take the sins of the world upon himself. Thank you, Savior, for your gracious sacrifice!

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Third Sunday in Lent – 2018

Today our readings cover God’s covenant of rescue through Moses, particularly the Ten Commandments. May we all learn to love God and neighbor by obeying the moral commandments of God as an expression of gratitude for Christ’s saving work in our lives.

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – 2nd Sunday in Lent – 2018

Our readings today point us in the direction of God’s covenants with Abraham. And we are reminded that we are true children of Abraham when we have a living faith in Jesus Christ. (Please forgive my voice, as I am recovering from the flu in this recording.)

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – First Sunday in Lent – 2018

This Lent, the lectionary bring’s us through God’s covenants in our OT lessons – beginning with Noah. We are reminded that though he doesn’t need us, our Lord loves us and will make sure sin doesn’t destroy his good creation. That’s why he make covenants with us. (Our catechism reminds us of this, too.)
