    Rest for the Soul “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” […]

    Pentecost: The Holy Spirit’s Gifts Last week I asked Harry what he wanted for Father’s Day. His response was one I had heard many times: something for everyday use that is beautiful. Even though I need a reminder every few months, slowly, this has become our gift giving philosophy: something that is beautiful and functional. […]

    The Trinity Once upon a time, in the early centuries of the church, the doctrine of the Trinity was so hotly debated, that people in the marketplaces used to talk about it, and get into arguments over the nature and essence of God the Father, of Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The […]

    Acts 17 – Paul in Athens This past weekend two conversations have been swirling around in my mind. The first is from an online discussion group for Anglican church clergy under 40. A discussion is underway about how the church responds to the spiritual but not religious group. Many of you are probably familiar with […]

    John 14:6 The Way, the Truth, and the Life. When I was about six or seven years old, my sister and I had best friends who lived in the house beside ours. They were two little boys close in age and we played with them almost every day. We were a church going family and […]

    A Journey to Recognition I remember as a teenager that I hated to wear my glasses. The vanity and self-consciousness of a sixteen year old meant I would walk around the halls of my highschool and the faces that passed were blurs. Even friends I couldn’t recognize if they were more than twenty feet away. […]

    The facts are few and spare: the stone was removed, the linen wrappings were lying in the tomb, the headcloth was rolled up and in a separate place. That is all. These facts do not and cannot tell us in themselves that this is an event of resurrection. In the gospel today, John 20:1-18, I […]

    In a series of writings called “Centuries of Meditations”, the great 17th century writer and mystic Thomas Traherne called the Cross the “abyss of wonders.” I think this image does two things. One, naming the cross as an abyss means we can never fully grasp or understand it. The abyss also suggests something to fall […]

    The Lamb of God – John 1:29 “Behold the Lamb of God. Behold him who takes away the sin of the world.” This is the grand and strange statement that John the Baptist makes when he sees Jesus walking by. And Christians have been calling Jesus the Lamb of God since then. Many of us […]

    Images of Resurrected Life One of my favourite television shows when I was in school was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. In it a young woman has the mission to kill vampires and other nasty creatures that threaten the world, her community, friends and family. The show is a cult favourite and the figure of the […]

    November 3, 2013 Who are the saints? Throughout the year, on many days of the month, the church celebrates people who have in their unique stories revealed God. They have done this in often memorable ways. Many are remembered for starting schools, hospitals, monasteries, and other communities, e.g. people like Benedict and his sister Scholastica […]

    The Character of God: Luke 15:1-10 In last week’s gospel, Jesus was teaching about the high cost of discipleship, asking for careful thought and consideration of anyone who felt drawn to walk in his path. In essence, discipleship is a lifelong journey of putting one’s relationship with God first, humbly, patiently, faithfully. And yet, for […]

    The salty gospel of Jesus: Luke 14:25-33 Some of you may know that before I became a priest, I worked in communications. Well it was that background that came to the fore as I was reading the gospel today. Particularly when I heard the shocking words: “Whoever comes to me and does not hate father […]

    Mythbusters and Mary There is a popular cable tv show called Mythbusters. In each episode the show’s hosts test whether a popular belief or urban legend is true, plausible, or busted as false. For instance, they tested to see whether it was actually easy to shoot fish in a barrel (It turns out it’s not […]
