12/08/2013 Why Advent? Part Two

The ax is at the root of the tree; the winnowing fork is separating the wheat from the chaff. Tithing a full 10% is good for our souls because it reduces our choices, makes us happier, and simplifies our lives. Tithing is the ax and winnowing fork that gets rid of what is not needed so that we may receive what is being gifted to us - Jesus.

Amen

12/1/2013 Why Advent?

Advent, 1st Sunday. Life without Advent leads to exhaustion, as we follow the gods of capitalism, consumerism, hedonism, and media overload. Besides, what about our soul? That is why God gave us Advent. Stay awake! Keep alert! God is already working in the world! Come, let us walk in the light of the Lord!

Amen

11/17/2013 Rich Toward God

When we are rich toward ourselves, we may be rich, but we are also fools. Let's talk about money, so we may be rich toward God, and be freed from the tyranny of being possessed by our possessions.

Amen

Caregiver Sunday 2013. As U2 sang in "One" we get to carry each other. Caregivers do this important and exhausting work. We ask God's blessing on them today.

Amen
