PICTURE A KINGDOM

In our Gospel this morning it is like Jesus already knows what our answer might be to the question, “What is a kingdom like?” His parable responds to the prompt. Jesus tells us, God’s kingdom cannot be bound by what we deem a kingdom on earth.

PERSONAL STATEMENT

At Bexley Seabury, I will learn new and innovative ways to preside in a church without walls. I will foster a sense of curiosity, wonder, and presence. I will grow even deeper roots by enhancing my discipleship. These things will lead me, through ministry, to bear fruit which will transform the world.

SEEING LAZARUS

Our work is to meet each other, to be in relationship with each other, to listen to each other. What can we do in our own lives to truly see each other? To see where each other are hungry? To see where each other are hurting? To see where each other needs help? To see each other as being of equal worth to our self?  To see each other in our full humanity?

KEEP AWAKE

During this Advent, as you prepare your homes and trees and gifts and cookies, also prepare your hearts. Make yourself ready. Jesus is going to be born. Keep awake because Jesus is going to change our lives and our world again.
