Current Reflections


“God Loved the World into Creation”

May 26, 2024
John 3:1-17
Trinity Sunday (B)
Jesus comes to us in mysterious ways, sometimes we think we can approach him ‘at night’ without others realizing we are searching for faith. But Christ who is ever faithful will indeed be there for us, challenging us, comforting us, by the Holy Spirit, to realize how loved we are by the God who created all of us and the world.

“Love Will Overcome”

Pentecost (B)
May 19, 2024
John 15:26-27, 16:4b-15
The Holy Spirit is a refining fire, testing what we do by God’s will and God’s ways, but allowing us to have free rule in our lives even to our own detriment. We can do miracles with the power of the Holy Spirit, but we can also do ourselves in if we are stubborn and refuse God’s guidance. With Jesus Christ’s physical presence now missing, we listen to his words of love and direction as given to us by God’s Holy Spirit.

“God Is Our Great Protector”

7 Easter (B)
May 12, 2024
John 17:6-19
Jesus’ high priestly prayer is prayed for the disciples and for us who follow after them. Jesus was concerned that we always be protected by God, even though the world will hate his followers. However, God be praised, that we will be kept safe for all of eternity regardless.
