As we wind down Lent and enter Holy Week, the lectionary presents readings to stoke our hearts’ flames with hope in anticipation of the resurrection! And that hope stirs us to genuinely pursue God’s call to care for people in body as much as soul, and to care for creation as much as people.
This week the lectionary has us rejoicing in the words of Psalm 146 (beginning with 4 in the Book of Common Prayer). In it we find a God whose creative actions, dependable character, compassion for the poor and outcast, intolerance for wicked ways, and boundless reign make him worthy of all the praise we can give! So rejoice this Gaudete Sunday! Again, I say, rejoice!
Playing a bit of catch up after a busy run from All Saints into Diocesan Convention to our our Election Day Spaghetti Dinner at the church. So here’s two sermons (plus links to the readings) for your spiritual edification. Blessings!
