Saturday of 2nd Sunday after Trinity – Acts 13:26-43

ShareActs 13:26-43 How patient are you?  How long do you think it’s reasonable to wait for something to happen that’s supposed to happen?

Wednesday of Lent 4 – Mark 12:38-44

ShareMark 12:38-44 “Size matters.” That’s what “They” tell us, so it must be true.  We want to know how much we earn and how much others earn.  We want to compare the sizes of our churches, their programs and their organs.  We measure by human standards how much we’ve given.  We do this to make […]

Thursday of Epiphany 4 – Colossians 2:20-3:11

ShareColossians 2:20-3:11 Sometimes you think you know someone.  And then you stumble upon their CD collection or, in my case, my record collection.  Though I’ve been branching out a lot in recent years, if you looked at my record collection you might come away with the idea that it revolves around two poles: Baroque classical […]
