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 – Trinity Sunday – 2017
On this Trinity Sunday, I thought it best to give a little context to St Paul’s Trinitarian blessing at the end of his 2nd letter to the Corinthians. That way we can better take stock of how we believe, not just what we believe, so we don’t fall into the same schismatic, antinomian, and hubris-laden traps of the Corinthian church. In other words, a practical approach to embracing the Triune the God.
Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Sixth Sunday in Easter – 2017

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – 7th Sunday in Epiphany – 2017
As our lectionary presents visions of holiness– Leviticus reminds us that holiness means putting God’s love into action by loving our neighbor.
Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – St Bartholomew’s Feast & Proper 17 – 2016
Another two-for-one. Probably just as well since I’ll be on vacation next week. Having been asked by the diocese to supply services for St Bartholomew’s – Scottdale on Saturday evenings, it was fortuitous to start close enough to that apostle’s feast day to recognize it. Then regular Sunday service at St Francis, we forged ahead with St Luke’s Gospel, where we see Jesus making the link between humility and how we treat those we are tempted to think of as “below” us. May we all be willing both to bear our cross, and to walk the way of humility expressed through love for all (not just the people we consider worthy of it).
