In John’s Gospel Holy Week is Jesus’s second trip to Jerusalem. It’s also when time gets ritually slippery.
We do a midweek service on Wednesday which means I get to preach on Holy Wednesday. This is the day tradition says Judas betrays Jesus.
Morsels & Stories: I talked about what I say during the welcome announcements and why.
Sermon: Peter denies Jesus three times before the rooster crows twice. What can we learn from Peter’s history of getting it wrong?

Morsels & Stories: I talked about the Corporation and Vestry of the Parish and the Canons. You can find the Canons of our Diocese here. (link)
Sermon: I love Jeremiah and a lot of the reason might be right in this chapter. God gives Jeremiah a promise for a people.
The lessons can be found by clicking here. (link) I worked most closely with Jeremiah 31:31-34.
Morsels & Stories: I talk about laetare or mothering Sunday.
Sermon: What if John 3:16 is an idol of the Church, and what if, maybe, the weird story about the snakes can help us understand idols and redeem John 3:16?
The lessons can be found by clicking here. I worked with Num 21:4–9 and John:14-21.
Edmonton got a decent amount of snow between Friday night and Sunday morning so our worship was a bit more intimate than normal. Instead of our usual Morsels & Stories we started with a really interactive section. I did my best to make sure the gist of the conversation got caught by the mic. Thank you for your patience.
Sermon: Jesus has deep passion for God’s home. What does home mean to us? What does this mean for us?
The lessons for today can be found by clicking here. I worked most closely with John 2: 13-22.
