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.

The Sermon from the Fringe title, derives from the fact that Winnipeg is in the middle of its Fringe Theatre Festival, and the fact that the editors of the Lectionary, cut out the main body of the story when they chose the reading.The audio below is from last night at…Continue readingSermon from the Fringe – Mark 6:30-34, 53-56
St. Philip’s will be having it’s Maundy Thursday service, Eucharist, and afterwards the stripping of the altar, on Thursday, April 18th, at 7:00pm. Our address is 240 Tache Street. You are welcome to attend, and participate. If you wish to simply attend and observe, you are welcome to do that as well. You may not be familiar with Maundy Thursday. It is probably the most intimate service during Passion Week, and it’s a great introduction to the Easter weekend. Playoff…Continue readingMaundy Thursday Mealtime
