The Third Sunday after Epiphany

1 Corinthians 12:12-31 "One Body with Many Members"

January 24, 2016


For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit. Indeed, the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot would say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it...

Jeremiah 31:7-14 "The Joyful Return of the Exiles"

January 03, 2016


For thus says the Lord: Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob, and raise shouts for the chief of the nations; proclaim, give praise, and say, “Save, O Lord, your people, the remnant of Israel.” See, I am going to bring them from the land of the north, and gather them from the farthest parts of the earth, among them the blind and the lame, those with child and those in labor, together; a great company, they shall return here. W...

John 1:1-18 "The Word Became Flesh"

December 27, 2015


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witne...

St. Paul's Open Letter to Presiding Bishop Curry

Southside Evangelism

January 18, 2016


Dear Presiding Bishop Curry, We, at St. Paul’s Columbus, MS, watched the video you released the day after your installation. The one that called us to take to the streets, leave the walls that so often enclose us, and seek our congregation in the world. When we first viewed it, we conversed with excitement as to how the Episcopal Church was going to become evangelical under your leadership as primate of our church. Ho...

What is a Curate?

January 01, 2016


Recently, there’s been a bit of chatter, as to: “What in the world is going on with our curate?” This conversation continues: “Wasn’t he ordained in June?” and, “Do we have to learn new terminology as to how to address him?” and, “Is he leaving us?” or even, “Wait, what actually is a ‘curate’ anyway?!” On January 16th I am being ordained as ...

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...
