"Does God Have Down's Syndrome?... And Other Questions We Ask:" Sermon for the 12th Sunday After Pentecost

Father Robert's brother Dolph, who has Down's Syndrome, once asked: "If I am created in God's image, does this mean that God has Down's Syndrome?" All of us have questions about the nature of God. What does God look like, sound like, act like? This sermon addresses these questions!

"When We're in Desperate Need of Rest," The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B

In the Gospel of Mark, Jesus and the disciples seek much-needed rest, but the crowds and the need are so great. Jesus sees their suffering and looks upon them with compassion. This compassion is not the kind that pities from afar, but enters into the journey with the person who is suffering and walks with them toward healing. Jesus' compassion offers all of us grace and rest in God's love.

"Wait, There Really is Good News Here," The Eighth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B

There is bad news all around us! Today's reading from Mark about Herod beheading John the Baptist seems like just more bad news. But there is really Good News for us! Herod gives into vanity, self-interest, and vanity and kills an innocent man. So, what are we to do with this passage? As part of Bishop Curry's new initiative, "The Way of Love," we are called to practice a rule of life that leads us in the path of Jesus and away from the things that distract us from Christ. Part of this rule of life is to "Turn," turn toward Jesus at every decision in every day. Sometimes we'll be successful and sometimes we won't, but we'll be better and the world will be better each time we do. This is the Way of Love!

"The Way of Love," Sermon for the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost, Year B

You can be right or you can be in relationship. Or maybe we can be right through relationship if we are following in the way of Jesus as he spreads God's message of love. As the people of Jesus' hometown closed their hearts and minds to the possibilities of his message, we, too, can get stuck in the perspectives of our own worlds. Jesus is offering us "Good News" that calls us to follow him. This week Presiding Bishop Curry unveiled a "rule of life" called "The Way of Love." This is a rule of life that frees us to love and live in peace with God, our neighbors, and ourselves.

"Batteries Not Included": Sermon for the Sixth Sunday After Pentecost, Year B

Mark's Gospel tells the story of two healings: Jairus's daughter and the "hemorrhaging woman." From this story, we can learn that Jesus has the power of "kingship." But we also see that we all have need for healing--physical, spiritual, psychological, emotional. How do we approach Jesus?

Amen
