Tuesday of 1st Sunday after Easter – 1 Peter 1:13-25

Tuesday in Lent 5 – John 12:12-19

ShareJohn 12:12-19 “Behold, your King is coming to you, lowly and riding on a donkey.” John’s Gospel doesn’t have the word “lowly,” as does Zechariah’s prophecy, but it is the word I most want to focus on this morning.  The disciples did not at this time understand these things.  Only after Jesus was glorified did […]

Thursday of Epiphany 1 – John 2:1-12

ShareJohn 2:1-12 As we proceed through the season of Epiphany this year, it’s good for us to rehearse the origin and themes of the season.  Epiphany comes from a Greek word which means to appear or reveal.  Epiphany is one of the earliest of Christian holy days and dates from the 2nd century in its […]

Monday of the 20th Sunday after Trinity – 1 Timothy 3:14-4:5

Share1 Timothy 3:14-4:5 In I Timothy 3:14-4:5, St. Paul teaches what is called a sacramental worldview.  According to the Book of Common Prayer, a sacrament is “an outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace given unto us.”  There are two dominical Sacraments, those Jesus Christ Himself specifically ordained: Baptism and Holy Communion.  […]

Christmas Day – Luke 2:1-20

ShareLuke 2:1-20 (The inspiration for this meditation came from Ephraim the Syrian, a 4th century Christian who wrote several excellent Nativity Hymns.) At Christmas the question sometimes arises, “What do you get for the man who has everything?”  For us, the question is, “What should we give to a God who has everything and has […]

Monday Trinity 23 – Colossians 1:1-17

ShareColossians 1:1-17 In verses 15-18 we have another great hymn of the faith which may or may not have originated with St. Paul.  It is strikingly similar to Revelation 4:11 which the creatures in heaven are singing, so it’s probably a good idea to get used to it while still here on earth! Paul sings […]
