The Baptism of Jesus

As the people were in expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Christ, John answered them all, saying, “I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you […]

Christmas Eve Readings and Carols

I walked into the police station and one of the officers said to me, ‘Should you still be on about the Virgin Birth?’. He likes to stir and there was a twinkle in his eye. I have to think fast when chatting to him and often think of better things to say afterwards! ‘If the […]

Harvest Thanksgiving

Someone in the crowd said to [Jesus], “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or arbitrator over you?” And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the […]

14th Sunday after Pentecost

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good. The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God. They have all turned aside; together they have become […]

12th Sunday after Pentecost

Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by this time tomorrow.” […]
