2022 Fall Suppers Return

With pandemic restrictions eased, I’m looking forward to seeing 2022 Fall Suppers make a return. I know that during the last couple of pandemic years, there were some that went to a take out method. On the whole though, fall suppers disappeared from the dining landscape. I’ve been thinking about these dinners for the last couple of weeks. It looks like this year there will be at least a few dinners for people to enjoy. For the first few years…Continue reading2022 Fall Suppers Return

Feasting and Putting Folks in Their Place

Feasting is one of the main themes in yesterday’s Gospel reading. The video, which should show up somewhere on the page, contains my sermon from yesterday, when we celebrated Holy Baptism and the Eucharist. I’m trying to get it to run without ads, but it doesn’t see to want to work for me.  The lections for this Sunday can be found at Vanderbilt Divinity Lectionary. We used the Jeremiah, Psalm 81, Hebrews, and Luke readings. The verses I refer to…Continue readingFeasting and Putting Folks in Their Place

Mobile Hospitality – Common Eating

Mobile hospitality is another take on what we think about when we talk about hospitality.  When I first wrote about mobile hospitality, I was thinking about how we can be hospitable, when we find ourselves, as Christians, in a public setting. Then, Covid-19 hit. Over the last two years, I’ve been thinking more about: How can we take food with us, and offer hospitality to those who don’t have much to eat.  First of all, I don’t think that practicing…Continue readingMobile Hospitality – Common Eating

Although this had a very sensual element to it, it doesn’t deal with sex. The Affair of the Sausages traditionally marks the beginning of the Swiss Reformation in 1522. You can read a potted version of the story here. The Affair of the Sausages: Hidden History Five years ago marked the 500th anniversary…Continue readingAffair of the Sausages – 500th Anniversary

January 23rd Sermon – Sharing the Feast

Sermon for January 23rd, the Third Sunday in Epiphanytide You can find other sermons under this heading. Reading through the lectionary for today, January 23rd, I was struck by the Nehemiah reading. How, after the reading of the law left the people mourning and weeping, Nehemiah and Ezra commanded the people to go home and to celebrate with the feast. Not only to celebrate with feasting, but to make sure that everyone who had not prepared for the feast was…Continue readingJanuary 23rd Sermon – Sharing the Feast

Fundraiser Dinner at St. Thomas Anglican

As I’ve written before, my work as a priest has a large food element to it. One thing that goes along with any kind of food outreach ministry, is fundraising. Fundraising can be a challenging activity and I like to get involved with a fundraiser that supports other organizations. That’s one of the reasons I like to promote Fall Suppers. Let’s hope they return this fall. Yesterday, St. Thomas Anglican Church, in the Weston neighbourhood of Winnipeg, held their fundraiser…Continue readingFundraiser Dinner at St. Thomas Anglican
