First Sunday In Advent – Church Back Home – November 29, 2015

CONTROVERSY ALERT! In this Epistle reading, St Paul hits the nail on the head, supported by a piece of Gospel scripture most folks probably don’t know. Why don’t they know? Because nobody had the nerve to tell them about it!

Paul tells the people that love is the fulfilling of The Law. Do that, and you’ll fulfill The Law without worrying about the nitpicking. Not only that, Luke 16:16 shows Jesus saying “The Law and The Prophets were until John: since that time the Kingdom of God is preached and every man presseth into it.”

Sunday Next Before Advent – Church Back Home – November 22, 2015

Another one of those stories which people believe that they understand, this one the loaves and fishes feeding the multitudes. Philip answered with the mundane answer, as Jesus asked him. Andrew had another response, but not quite enough. Jesus knew what he was doing, though, and the meal produced more leftovers than the food they had to begin with!

This was following several other similar miracles which Jesus performed as he was traveling. Could it be that the effort here was to get people’s attention to what was happening beyond feeding five thousand?

24th Sunday After Trinity – Church Back Home – November 15, 2015

Another secret in plain sight! There are two stories in the Gospel reading that you probably remember well. But did you notice the story within the story that actually has the biggest impact? Look for this, if you want to learn what faith is about!

Yes, it’s a biggie. And no, most folks don’t even realize that it’s here!

23rd Sunday After Trinity – Church Back Home – November 8, 2015

More fun and heavy stuff! The epistle reminds us of where we really belong, and of “walkers” who are only out for themselves because they don’t know anything more.

But the gospel reading has some heavy stuff for us. It’s the familiar story of Jesus teaching in the temple when the Pharisees tried to trick him. But, he tricked them! Not only did he stay out of trouble, he got them into what could have been trouble. And his answer to their trick question is something for us to ponder, too!
