Holy Thursday

None of us knows what life will bring. But we always know in faith that Jesus is present with us always through life and tonight we focus on how he is present to us in the Eucharist. It is the sacrament of Christ’s presence with us. We come with gratitude and are reminded to be self emptied and selfless like Jesus.

Embracing the Cross

We are filled with gratitude when we look at the cross, but it is difficult, as we are also reminded that we have to face our own crosses. We can be present to Jesus and with Him in a particular way when we embrace our own crosses. Jesus invites us as disciples to imitate him and embrace our crosses. How well do…

Arc of the Covenant

Our new preaching series for Lent is the “Arc of the Covenant”. The Arc reminds us of the “Ark” of the Covenant, the physical ark, but also it reminds us of the arc of a story. During our Lenten series we will follow the storyline or arc of this covenant right from Adam and Eve, through Noah, and eventually to the climax…

The Holy One of God

Many people through the centuries have come to know Jesus’ teachings but have not come to know Him as the “Holy One of God”. How did you come to know Jesus as the Holy One of God? How did you go from knowing about Jesus to knowing Jesus? Perhaps, like me, you grew up in…

Our Baptismal Identity

We want to be renewed in our baptismal identity as children of God; as beloved sons and daughters of God. We come to the living waters of the Spirit daily. The Holy Spirit dwells within us and we want to tap into that, the grace of our baptism. We find our hope and security amidst the loss and insecurities of life. Jesus…
