Second Sunday of Christmas

Before the sun, moon, and stars, Christ was the Light of the world, pouring love into our lives, and strong, to give us salvation.

Christmas Day, 2009

God sends us Christmas gifts from heaven above: the light in which we see light, the light in which we receive self-knowledge that banishes the darkness.

Second Advent (December 6, 2009)

Hear ye, valleys; hear ye, mountains; hear you crooked ways, you rough places; prepare ye the way of the Lord!

Christ the King, last Sunday in Pentecost (November 22, 2009)

Let Christ rule in your hearts, so that you become of help where there is no help!

Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost (September 13, 2009) (Monday is the Day of the Holy Cross)

Rejoice in your suffering! Behind the cross lies the glorious resurrection!

Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost (August 30, 2009)

From the passion of our Lord Jesus Christ, we receive the discipline that raises up our gifts from the grave in which they were buried, to be used for the needs of our neighbors.

Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost (August 16, 2009)

Like goslings with a mother goose, let us bond to Jesus Christ our Lord and like gospel goslings, let us follow Jesus in a line wherever he leads us in the world. Amen.

Tenth Sunday after Pentecost, August 9, 2009:

“Left on our own we cannot love and we cannot forgive, but with Christ in our hearts, with the Holy Spirit, we can’t help loving, we can’t help forgiving others.

Pentecost, August 2nd, 2009:

Praise the Lord! Jesus shows up when we are hungry, because he is our Bread from Heaven.

Pentecost, May 31, 2009, after using Ezekiel 37: 1-14 and the Prophet in the Valley of Dry Bones:

The living water of the Holy Spirit washes away our infections, washes away our diseases, washes away our sin, and washes away death, so that our dry bones rise up and walk in the newness of life. Amen.

About God’s Friendship, May 17, 2009

God’s friendship includes nature: the earth, air, sea, and all her creatures, giving us a taste of God’s friendship, too.

Good Shepherd Sunday, May 3, 2009

We have a compassionate good Shepherd, who searches for us when we’ve gone astray, seeks us when we are lost, finds us, slings us over his shoulders, and brings us home. Amen.

Communion Blessing, April 19, 2009:

By the nail-holes in his hands and feet, and his riven side; by the wounds of Jesus we are healed and by his death we have won everlasting life. Amen.

The blessing for every Sunday:

The body of our Lord Jesus Christ and his precious blood, strengthen and preserve you in true faith unto everlating life! Depart in peace.
