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

Eat Fat, Drink Sweet Wine, Send Portions

To read the first part, eat fat,  of this title you might be forgiven if you thought that the post might be some sort of reactionary rant against the new Canada Food Guide. Instead, what you’re going to get is another sermon. The title is a collapsing of Nehemiah 8:10. This was the Old Testament reading from this week’s Lectionary readings. Since I first started Dining with Donald, I’ve wanted to work more on Bible passages that relate to food,…Continue readingEat Fat, Drink Sweet Wine, Send Portions

Water into Wine: For the Common Good

This is today’s sermon. The readings it’s based on are: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11 and John 2:1-11. Spiritual Gifts and Water into Wine.

Sermon August 26, John 6:56-69

Sermon – August 12, 2018, John 6:35-51

My August 12 sermon isn’t as much a sermon as it is an update. It’s more of a recap and place-setting for the net two weeks. One of the reason that this one is so short is that it was well into the 30 degree celsius range with high humidity on Sunday, and I thought it would be best not to hold either the congregation or myself captive to such heat. Although, I should add, I was very pleased that…Continue readingSermon – August 12, 2018, John 6:35-51
