Perhaps I’m easily amused. The fact that the admonishment “Let us live honorably as in the day, not in reveling and drunkenness, not in debauchery and licentiousness, not in quarreling and jealousy…Make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires” is assigned by the Lectionary to the first Sunday of Advent […]

The Acts passage we just heard paints such a beautiful picture of the early church in Jerusalem, doesn’t it? “Now the whole group of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one claimed private ownership of any possessions, but everything they owned was held in common…and great grace was upon them all.” […]

“As for those of you who in the present age are rich…”
I can’t help thinking of that iconic scene from the movie “Taxi Driver” when a young Robert deNiro (portraying Travis Bickle) is practicing being a tough guy. Do you remember it? “Are you […]
