Common Eating – The Eucharist

Since I last updated this post on the Eucharist, I’ve discovered that Google likes posts that are at least 1,200 words in length. As a result I’m going through a lot of my old posts to see if I can find ways to reach that baseline number. Some of them have been quite easy as they were already over a 1,000 words. Some, like this one, will take a fair bit more work if I hope to reach the goal.…Continue readingCommon Eating – The Eucharist

This is another one of the sections that I’ve been giving a great deal of thought as to how I would like to present it.  In the regular type face sections below you will see that while I put some emphasis on the stories of the Old and New Testament, there was not necessarily a lot of emphasis there originally. There are definitely a lot of changes to this post, and I think, that as I continue to develop this…Continue readingCommon Eating – Old and New Testament

When I compiled it, I noticed that it was rather low on books dealing with the Eucharist, or food and theology. I’ve finally getting around to correcting this. One of the first books I’ve picked up in that regard, is Margaret Feinberg’s, Taste and See: Discovering God Among Butchers, Bakers, & Fresh Food Makers.

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. The main reading for this sermon is from the Gospel of John where Jesus turns water into wine. It’s about doing things for the good of all. This is currently a challenging time for my parish St. Philip’s. We are in a situation that the need to either close our doors, or entirely reconfigure our parish, within the…Continue readingWater into Wine: For the Common Good

Sermon August 26, John 6:56-69

This is the last sermon from my series on John Chapter 6. At the end of the audio section I’ve included a couple of songs in Swahili sung by the family who joined us from Mozambique. They are originally are from the Congo, and as I posted a couple of weeks ago they have faced difficulties since arriving in Winnipeg. The parish has rallied around the family and we have set up a Go Fund Me page to assist them.Previous…Continue readingSermon August 26, John 6:56-69
