Greetings to all!

January 15, 2020: Monday, January 20, is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday, an annual occasion to revisit Dr. King’s life and work, and how they continue to inform us today. This year’s observance seems particularly timely in light of recent racial, religious, and political tensions.  Consider these thoughts from Dr. King… When an individual is no longer a true participant, when he no longer feels a sense of responsibility to his society, the content of democracy is emptied.  When…

January 8, 2020: This Sunday, January 12, is the Sunday of the Baptism of the Lord, the second of three stories associated with Epiphany (see lessons below). As an event in Jesus’ life, to paraphrase the New Testament scholar John Dominic Crossan, “That Jesus was baptized by John in the Jordan River is one of the surest things we know about both of them.”  The remembrance of Jesus’ baptism has long been an occasion to recall our own baptism, which…

January 3, 2020: EPIPHANY SUNDAY Sunday Conversation, 10am, Trinity Hall “…and they worshiped him” Worship was the response of the magi upon finding the child, Jesus.  Was worship something they experienced, or was it something they did, or both?

Greetings to all!

December 24, 2019: As I think about Christmas and the questions of “fact” that we like to ask about the story of Jesus’ birth, and other stories about Jesus, I am reminded of the following reflection by Frederick Buechner… Who knows what the facts of Jesus’ birth actually were?  As for myself, the longer I live, the more inclined I am to believe in miracle, the more I suspect that if we had been there at the birth, we might…
