Back to the lectionary readings, we’re looking at the psalms for the next few weeks. Today Psalm 25 encourages us to trust in God’s mercy.
Fr. Lenny’s Sermons – Holy Week Trio
Been preaching, but not posting, in order to assemble a collection of sermons that cover the icon vignettes in the Life of Christ Icon that span Holy Week – the Triumphal Entry, the Last Supper, and the Crucifixion. Listen and reflect along with the readings as you consider those mighty acts by which our Savior brought us from sin and death into holiness and life eternal.
Triumphal Entry: Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29 / Zechariah 9:9-12 / Mark 11:1-11
Last Supper: Psalm 23 (KJV) / 1 Corinthians 11:23-26 / Mark 14:22-25
Crucifixion: Psalm 31:9-16 / Philippians 2:5-11 / Mark 15:33-39
Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Life of Christ – The Transfiguration of Our Lord
Please forgive the lateness of this post – I was out of town the early part of this week right after service. As the story of Christ’s Transfiguration comes to the fore in our Summer meanderings through the Life of Christ icon, I thought it advantageous to reflect on the Scriptures (Psalm 99, 2 Peter 1:16-21, & Mark 9:1-8) surrounding this event in a lectio divina-inspired way. In so doing, my prayers is that you might imagine yourself present in this amazing moment of salvation history, and come through it with a deeper commitment to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.
Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Palm Sunday – 2017
This Palm Sunday, we not merely join Jesus as we welcome him into Jerusalem, we join him with Daily Office readings in the good fight of faith with saints of old like Paul and Timothy.
Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – First Sunday in Lent – 2017
As we walk the penitential path with Jesus this Lent, our lectionary readings help us compare and contrast Adam and Jesus so we might better appreciate the great salvation our Lord has worked out for all who believe.
Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Last Sunday in Epiphany – 2017
On this last Sunday before Lent, the lectionary lessons remind us that Christ, the New Lawgiver, is the center of God’s revelation and plan to save the cosmos. In other words, it’s not about “me;” it’s all about Jesus.
