Proper 5 (B)

Mark 3:20-35
Jesus calls his followers his closest family members, but still never forsakes his mother to his dying breath. Our families may be those of our church, those who love and serve the Lord together with us. We can be a team for Christ.

“Is Human Law Divine Law?”

All Saints Episcopal Church, Steenrijk
Willemstad, Curacao
Proper 4 (B)
June 2, 2024
Mark 2:23 – 3:6

Jesus challenges the power of the Pharisees in doing a miracle on the Sabbath, healing a man with a paralyzed hand. But the Sabbath law had been taken over by the Pharisees, and they used Jesus’ actions to begin their plot to remove him from any power he was gathering. How do we ‘keep the Sabbath holy’?

“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.
