A Sacred Home, Lent 2018

Home where we are imperfect and lovedEdmonton 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.

Ash Wednesday 2018

IMG-5685

Dear friends in Christ, every year at the time of the Christian Passover we celebrate our redemption through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Lent is a time to prepare for this celebration and to renew our life in the paschal mystery. We begin this holy season by remembering our need for repentance, and for the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We begin our journey to Easter with the sign of ashes, an ancient sign, speaking of the frailty and uncertainty of human life, and marking the penitence of the community as a whole. I invite you therefore, in the name of the Lord, to observe a holy Lent by self-examination, penitence, prayer, fasting, and almsgiving, and by reading and meditating on the word of God. Let us kneel before our Creator and Redeemer.
