The Economy of Grace

We continue this week in Jesus’ sermon on the plain.  Last week we contemplated what Jesus’ “blessings and woes” told us about God.  This week we dive into what that might look like, in practical terms, for each one of us.

A Level Place

Come with us as we challenge our mainstream understanding of the word “blessed” and expand our thinking, seeing and understanding beyond “me” to embrace a divine sense of “we.”

Catch

After a demoralizing night of attempted fishing, Jesus instructs Simon to go back out into the deep waters and drop his nets for a catch. Miraculously, Simon pulls in such an abundance of fish that other boats and fisherfolks come to his aid.

Purpose

Today, Jesse Hodge, will be reflecting on the calling of the young prophet, Jeremiah, encouraging all of us to consider our own calling in this precious life.

Anointed

Today we look at the beginning of Jesus’ ministry from Luke’s perspective. In Luke, Jesus’ ministry starts in the middle of a worship service. Jesus stands in the synagogue, reading scripture in his faith community. But the ordinary turns extraordinary when Jesus makes an astonishing claim!

Revelation

Today we spend time in the Gospel of John with the first of seven “signs” that Jesus performs or offers, each one giving us a glimpse into his true identity and mission. This first sign is the account of Jesus turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana.

New Year, New Love

This is the perfect season to be intentional about new beginnings!  Imagine what LOVE looks like in this new year.

My Father’s House

The Bible says very little about the childhood of Jesus but today we spend time with the one and only passage that provides a window into Jesus’ boyhood.

Light in the Darkness

Our Bishop, Grant Hagiya, preaches today on “Light in the Darkness,” sharing his thoughts, hopes and encouragement with all of us as we enter into 2022!
