This sermon looks at what it means to say (or sing!) “I have decided to follow Jesus” through these five lenses: Evangelism, Worship, Christian Formation, Stewardship, and Discipleship. (3 Epiphany Year A)
Be careful what you ask for, you might just get it is what Andrew found when pointed to Jesus by John the Baptist. This sermon looks at being careful what you pray for, you might just find that both the congregation and the possible next rector discover that who they become is God’s gift to each other. 2 Epiphany A RCL
Transition moves to transformation as St. Timothy’s prepares to listen to God and one another as the work that will bring the next rector begins in earnest. This sermon presents a walking stick for the rector who will guide what comes next against the transition from John the Baptist to the transformation found in Jesus the Christ. 1 Epiphany A RCL
This sermon asks I wonder questions as I use the expression “Who you are is God’s gift to you, who you become is your gift to God” against the backdrop of Henry Van Dyke’s Christmas story “The Other Wiseman.”
The Story of the Innkeeper’s Long Night is inspired by a children’s book entitled Jesus’ Christmas Party by Nicholas Allan. The children at the early service helped prepare for the story by bringing all the characters to the creche as part of a longstanding early Christmas Eve service tradition. Preached at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church, Wilson NC at 5:15 pm on Christmas Eve.
