The First Sunday in Advent

Luke 21:25-36 "The Coming of the Son of Man"

November 29, 2015


“There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on the earth distress among nations confused by the roaring of the sea and the waves. People will faint from fear and foreboding of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in a cloud’ with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, stand up and raise your heads, ...

Mark 13:1-8 "The Destruction of the Temple Foretold"

November 15, 2015


Mark 13:1-8 As he came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, "Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings!” Then Jesus asked him, "Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.” When he was sitting on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked him privately, "Tell us, when will this be, and what will be...

Mark 10:35-45 James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to him and said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.” And he said to them, “What is it you want me to do for you?” And they said to him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be bapti...

Clergy Perspective

Southside Evangelism

November 30, 2015


This year on November 1 Episcopalians nationwide made a bold move in installing the Most Reverend Michael Curry as its twenty-seventh Presiding Bishop, the bishop overseeing the entirety of the Episcopal Church. The move was not bold due to his political views, something which I know very little about, or even his race, though he is the first African American Presiding Bishop. The move was bold because for the first time, a...

Happy New Year!

November 24, 2015


While the Christian Church has adopted many secular festival dates (choosing the date of the Winter Solstice for the Nativity of Jesus Christ, for instance) we remain distinctly counter cultural with respect to others. November 29th marks the First Sunday of Advent, and it is the beginning of our liturgical year. We leave behind us the Gospel of Mark from which we heard the bulk of the gospel readings for last year, lection...

Why do I give?

October 28, 2015


Last week Robert and Macaulay challenged us to articulate why we give to the Church. I decided to accept their challenge and spent some time thinking about why I really give. What hit home for me was when Robert spoke about the Church’s involvement in his life since his baptism. I began thinking about my own life,and soon realized the truth of the church’s relevance in my life.
