Welcoming the Potter's Hand

Sunday, December 3, 2017

God uses us to intervene in troubled lives, like St Nicholas did.  The mystery of human love is what addresses most human needs.  But God has a plan for us that goes beyond bread on the table and a roof over head.  This plan is for healing our broken relationship with God and all the broken human relationships. Now, this healing requires soul surgery, not just cosmetics.  It is not always pleasant or fun to go through it, but the benefit is a blessing.  

God Comes Among Us

Sunday, December 10, 2017

Most folks who come to church are seeking some sort of comfort, peace, meaning or blessing.  Sometimes we demand answers to impossible questions; sometimes we expect nothing, but when we get right down to it, we hope to encounter something from beyond that gives us hope.  

The Spirit of God Moves Us

Sunday, December 17, 2017

If God comes to dwell in our hearts and lives, what will that be like?  What will God set us to doing?  How will our way of being change?  How will our aspirations change?  Perhaps, we expect things to be rather unchanged—just a little better that before—perhaps?  Or it could be that God has something much grander for us, which we have overlooked.  

Our souls Magnify the Lord

Sunday, Ddecember 24, 2017

Mary, the Mother of Jesus is often placed on a pedestal as a perfect, near divine being, who is remote from us in every way.  I would suggest that the greatness of Mary is that she is very human and yet open to the work of God in her life—even to the point of risking death by stoning.  Mary is extraordinary, not because of her background, but her courageous openness to God.
