Jan 26 – A Man in a Tree

Today in Luke 19, we hear the special story about Zacchaeus being restored. Traditionally, we hear about this man’s size and how he must climb a tree to see Jesus pass by from above the large crowd. Have you ever considered the spiritual interpretations offered by our Church Fathers

Dec 22 – Where did you come from?

Knowing where we came from is important in many ways, especially in preparing for where we are going. I’m not talking just about the our physical birth and ancestry, but also our faith and family’s spiritual heritage. Today we hear the Gospel from Matthew 1, which begins with “The book of the Genealogy of Jesus Christ.”

Dec 15 – The Great Banquet

Most of us can relate to being invited to a wedding, where we dress up and prepare for a big celebration with dinner and fellowship. In a similar way, we are preparing for a most special event in just a few weeks. It’s an invitation from God to draw closer to Him, through Jesus’ birth and coming into the world. The Gospel from Luke 14 is unique, and read annually two weeks before Christmas on the Sunday of the Forefathers of our Christian faith. This parable illustrates both

Nov 24 – The Rich Young Ruler

When we read Luke 18:18 again or even the version in Matthew 19:16, we can understand that the young rich ruler earnestly desires something greater than what he has. He desires eternal life, but, what exactly does he believe that looks like? Will eternal life be a continuation of the sumptuous and material-filled life he’s already experienced? I know I can relate with this sense of eternal life, because it’s easy and it means you get to keep all your stuff! But, there’s one big problem with this,

Nov 17 – The Rich Fool

How can we relate with this rich man, whom God refers to as a “Fool?” While many of us aren’t familiar with storing crops and an abundance of goods, what things do we have in abundance that may prevent our eyes from focusing on God and others? What we encounter in this story is wealth and thanksgiving, a most important lesson right before we sit together with our families and loved ones to celebrate this special American holiday. The foolish [...]

Nov 10 – The Good Samaritan – Just Good?

JUST Good?? This Sunday's Gospel reading in Luke 10:25-37 is frequently referred to as the story about "The Good Samaritan." Interestingly enough, the word, “good” appears nowhere in the passage. I think the word "good" is understood today as a fairly weak word -- something like "nice" or "okay." So we might not think the Samaritan did anything too special just by using the description of "good." In fact, the Samaritan man did far more than something nice for the person who was dying on the side of the road. He not only went out of his way to help, but he saved the man's life through his own sacrificial efforts.
