"All in the Family"
July 18, 2017 01:19 PM PDT

Abraham, Sarah, Hagar, Ismail, Isaac, Rebekah, Esau, Jacob -- the last few weeks we've been following the antics of the "First Family" of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We've seen how family relationships can be very messy and very complicated. And yet, our families are usually the first web of relationships into which God places us. They are places where God is intensely active. Perhaps they are also places where we might learn, and practice, what it means to be in faithful, loving, and sacrificial relationships, and grow in Christian virtues.

Moving from 'just let me staple the vicar' to a narrowly averted child sacrifice from a story which probably never happened, the Rector considers how we should be confronted by Scripture, and never be afraid to ask whether it's actually saying something that is right, about God, about us, about the world.

When we have no words

Recorded June 25 2017

Have you ever found yourself "speechless" in a situation that is particularly difficult, uncomfortable, or just plain heart-breaking? In the Bible, as in our own lives, finding the right words in the midst of hard realities can be a challenge. When an experience, or a problem, or an injustice renders us speechless, what might a faithful response look like, without words?

Doctrine, Worship, Trinity

"So, what about the doctrine of Trinity?" Or perhaps "So what about the doctrine of Trinity?" - the Rector's steadfast refusal to talk about doctrine on this subject relates to the heart of Trinity being experienced, especially in worship and community rather than doctrine. And there's a mention of St Patrick and some cartoon Irish fellas.

Goodbyes are hard - so why is the story of the Ascension not a record of dismay at parting? Some thoughts on the meaning behind the story, and the purpose such stories have within our Christian narrative.
