Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Life of Christ – Ascension

The final surrounding vignette in the Life of Christ icon depicts when our Lord ascended back on high. The readings  – Psalm 47, Acts 1:1-11, and Luke 24:44-53 – give us the anticipated messianic enthronement hoped for, the event of the Ascension itself, and the promise of the Holy Spirit after the ascension respectively. In reflecting on this amazing event, we bask in the knowledge that Jesus is indeed in control, and shares the fruits of reign by interceding for us and granting his very Spirit to all who trust him. Let us rejoice, our Ascended Savior reigns! Good News this is indeed!

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Proper 11 – 2016

Moving from Galatia to Colossae is certainly a step up in faith, even if the troubles afflicting both churches are similar.  We pick up with Colossians 1 where St Paul expounds the Supreme Gospel that centers on our Supreme Lord.  May we each find Jesus more than enough in this life and the next.

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Proper 5 – 2016

Paul continues his corrective of the Galatian churches this Sunday by pointing out how the true Gospel transforms lives for the better…starting with his own life.  May we all find the truth of the Good news and our own encounter with Jesus Christ proves equally transformational!
