Fr. Lenny’s Sermon & Bonus Poem – Christmas Eve – 2017

Sore throat, but still preached from St Paul’s letter to Titus in the lectionary. Jesus came to save, and he saved us out of love. Merry Christmas! (P.S. Enjoy the poem based on the letter to the Hebrews appointed for Christmas III below the sermon! Forgive the double-spacing; can’t change it on WordPress.)

Who Is This Jesus? (Christmas Day – Hebrews 1:1-4)

Who is this Jesus?

Who is this babe?

The Son of Mary?

The Son of God?

He is the one of whom prophets wrote,

Of whom through their words, our Father spoke.

He is the heir and Son Most High,

Who has made all things both far and nigh.

He is the radiance that comes from God,

His very stamped image deserving of laud.

He is the One who upholds the world,

The Word that keeps all things from coming unfurled.

He is sits at God’s right hand, enthroned above,

Whose blood bought forgiveness through his great love.

Above all the angels, his own name exceeds

All creatures in heaven or earth who owe creeds.

Here is this Jesus!

Here is this babe!

The sure Son of Mary.

The true Son of God.

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Fifth Sunday in Easter – 2017

Jesus reveals himself to be the way, the truth, and life in our Gospel lesson today. Because of who our Lord is and what he done, no other holy person could hold a candle to how he connects us to our Heavenly and the promises he grants us.

Fr. Lenny’s Sermon – Christmas Eve – 2016

The lectionary helps us rejoice in the words of Psalm 96 on this holy night.  On this Christmas Eve, make room for  King Jesus in the inn of your heart, as he makes room for us in eternity.

Fr. Lenny’s Sermons -Second Sunday in Advent – 2016

This Second Week in Advent, what do you expect from those who govern you?  In Psalm 72:1-7, 18-19, the Psalmist is looking for someone who seems to be fully human and fully divine.  I only know one King who fits that description. Don’t settle for second best!
