14th Sunday After Trinity – Church Back Home – August 28, 2016

We’re back, and there’s all the more reason to distribute sacraments along with potential controversy! How many people actually get what Jesus was telling us? Paul certainly did!

The legalism of the Old Testament, especially The Law, was a stumbling-block for people. And I’m sure that most of us can think of something we were never attracted to until someone tried to prohibit it! And that’s the reason for the Kingdom of Heaven and the Spirit.

And if we follow the Spirit, the fruits of the Spirit will exclude the fruits of The Law, giving us something far greater!

I’ll be right back – I Promise!

We had a bit of a problem. A couple of problems, actually. One was a bunch of storms that kept me busy between the air conditioner and making sure that the basement didn’t flood. The other is that the main computer where most of my creative and administrative stuff is kept, suddenly died.

We’re working on some major upgrades, and the new machine is here. So, next week you’ll have Holy Communion again and perhaps I’ll be able to bring more on-line.

Blessings to all!

11th Sunday After Trinity – Church Back Home – August 7, 2016

Here’s more potential controversy! At any rate, it won’t sit well with some folks. In the Epistle, Paul points out that the same grace is given to all. This extends from those who were closest to Jesus, such as Peter, to those like Paul who had once persecuted Jesus’ followers.

The gospel points out another basic fact, that being that excessive pride does not bring grace. A Pharisee and a tax collector went to pray in the temple. The Pharisee was supposedly a paragon of righteousness, while the tax collector was seen as a crook. But who was it that went home justified?
