People really do hurt us. How do we respond to the compassion God gives to our enemies? How do we let his love for them reign in us? Jonah’s is a story of repentance and anger, justice and compassion. In this message we engage with the God who overturns us and those we hate. Preached @ St. Peter’s Comox January 21, 2018.
It is a new year. A time for new beginnings, new hopes, new challenges. Here we consider how Mark begins his telling of the good news and where we might find our beginnings in it.
In doctors’ offices, grocery store lines and on coffee dates I hate waiting. Patience is not an easy gift for me. Being a Christian means to wait on Jesus’s promises. What does that waiting look like when we are waiting on a mystery we don’t entirely understand? Preached @ St. Peter’s Comox Nov. 12, 2017
The absence of love cracks the fabric of reality and our relationships. How do we speak to each other about our failures and ask those who are being destructive to look at what they’re doing? Hear some of Jesus’s teaching on this question. Preached @ St. Peter’s Comox September 10, 2017.
