Tuesday of Trinity 7 – Acts 23:12-24

ShareActs 23:12-24 “Some of the Jews banded together and bound themselves under an oath, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul.” Do you find this incredible, that a bunch of 1st century Jews would vow to eat or drink nothing until they had murdered someone?  It’s incredible to me, […]

Saturday of Easter 4 – Ephesians 6:10-24

ShareEphesians 6:10-24 Have you ever gotten involved in something that suddenly revealed itself as being a lot more serious than you thought?  For some, this happens in marriage, and they are like Jacob who thought he had married Rachel.  But Behold! it was Leah! For Diedre Cobb, it was joining the Army Reserves and facing […]

Saturday of Sexagesima Sunday – Galatians 5:13-26

ShareGalatians 5:13-26 In 1938 Orson Welles delivered what may have been the most electrifying radio address ever given.  He and his Mercury Theater group staged a radio version of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” that scared people out of their wits.  During this program, he portrayed how the earth had just been invaded by […]

Tuesday of the Second Sunday in Advent – Revelation 12

ShareRevelation 12 Who is this Woman, and who is this Child?  And who is the Dragon who wars against them both? As always, we should start with what’s certain, and that’s the Child, or the Son, and the Dragon.  The Child is a male Child, and therefore a Son, who is to rule the nations […]

Friday of Trinity 23 – Colossians 3:12-17

ShareColossians 3:12-17 Yesterday, we heard about putting on the New Man and the work of sanctification.  In Colossians 3:12-17, St. Paul gives us more detailed advice for how to put on Jesus Christ. I believe that God is the Creator of all and that Satan can only corrupt.  I imagine Him looking at what God […]

Thursday of 1st Sunday after Trinity – Luke 4:1-13

ShareLuke 4:1-13 I find Luke 4, in which the temptation of Christ occurs, to be one of the most humorous passages in the Bible.  It’s not actually the temptation itself but the way the events leading up to the temptation that make me laugh.  After Jesus has been baptized, the very next thing that happens […]

Good Friday – John 19:1-37

ShareJohn 19:1-37 Though the Morning Prayer lesson for this morning is John 18, I’ve chosen to meditate on John 19 instead, which is the Proper lesson for the Good Friday service. “Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?’ The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel […]

Friday of Trinity 17 – Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43

ShareMatthew 13:24-30, 36-43 The parable of the wheat and the tares seems so self-explanatory that I know there must be more to it.  We all understand that He who sows the good seed is the Son, that the good seeds are the sons of the kingdom, and that the tares are the sons of the […]
