This week is filled with activity here at St. Martin’s—both joyful and solemn. It is my privilege to walk with you in this journey of discipleship.
Beloved People of St. Martin’s, we have now begun our first Lenten season together, and I am so looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
Join us this Sunday as we close out the season after Epiphany and embrace the blessing of the journey into a deeper knowledge of our belovedness by God.
This Sunday’s gospel reading contains Luke’s version of the Beatitudes, which contains both blessings and woes.
We will be truly blessed that Bishop Smith will be our Celebrant at the Rite of Baptism, Confirmation, and Reception at 9:00 a.m.
What does it mean to live a Eucharistically-centered and Eucharistically-shaped life?
“If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:1-13
Epiphany is more than just a single feast—it is more like a season. The word “Epiphany” itself has several interlocking meanings.
We had a magnificent Christmas season: the children’s pageant, the carols, the “Hallelujah Chorus!” And just like that, it’s Epiphany!
This week I want to share with you a special report on our Courageous Generosity campaign, which is nearing completion. There is so much good news to share!
In this season of Advent and Christmas, the angle that captures my attention is not who Jesus WAS as much as who Jesus IS for us today.
In this Sunday’s gospel, Jesus will be talking about signs of his impending return, what is referred to as the apocalypse.
Last Sunday, I was privileged to be able to attend an Interfaith Festival of Thanksgiving, sponsored by the West County Interfaith Alliance.
I walked downstairs yesterday and spent time at our offrenda in the chapel area as well as the one assembled during Christian Education last Sunday.
It is wonderful to be a part of this community of faith that comes together each week to give thanks and lift our hearts to God.
