Sermon Round-Up, Vacation Week 2

Vacation isn’t over yet! It’s only through some planning that I haven’t snuck back into office yet. (Okay, I’m not that much of a work-a-holic, but I have started twitching about my email inbox a couple of times.)

Sunday’s Gospel was the Wedding at Cana and water into wine.

Priest Jones talks about weddings and people’s reactions to details going wrong.

Priest Funston looks at this miracle next to a recent story about a Mid-Western mikveh that went dry.

Bishop Fisher takes Mary as seriously as Jesus did.

Priest Richardson approaches the miracle with the Dr King quote, “The arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice.”

Priest Sinclair preaches on the history on transformation of living this miracle.

Bishop Rickel is preaching on the patronal feast of a Church and thus gets to talk about keeping Austin weird, St Antony, and being a Christian. (I went to college in a town similar to Austin, we even…ah…borrowed…the bumper stickers, so this had me smiling.)
