Sermon Advent III Dec 16 2018 Fr. Michael Cawthon

I just love this reading today; although, for many it leaves them scratching their heads – John the Baptist who knew Jesus from the womb, now does not know him? Some would say that John by this action is showing our human trait of doubt and confusion, thus many rationalize that “well, if John had doubt” then that must be OK because he is human. Recently, I have focused on the love of Jesus for each one of you – how he cares for you – you are His and how he can be yours if you receive him in [...]

Advent Sunday sermon Dec 2 fr. michael cawthon

Advent 1 2018 Dec 2 2018 Fr. Michael Cawthon The name Advent comes from the Latin word “Ad-ven-tus” meaning “Coming” and the Advent Season has been set aside by the Church since the 6th century as being a time of preparation; for the Incarnation of Christ (His birth) and for His second “Coming.” To prepare for the future: the Collect tells us to cast away darkness and wear the amour of light and speaks of His coming to judge the living and dead. In the Epistle we read to “put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision [...]

Bible Study 11-21-18 Nature of Anglicanism

THE APOSTLES’ CREED / Church Mission The Apostles’ Creed, our baptismal creed, is the most ancient summary of Christian faith.  All churches in the catholic tradition hold to it, and it is considered a sufficient statement of Christian faith. The creed summarizes the story and revelation of God in the Old and New Testaments.  It describes our understanding of the one God as Trinity:  Father/Creator, Son/Redeemer, and Holy Spirit/Sanctifier.  God’s being includes three persons, in one substance.  “Persona” is a Latin word persona derives from the ancient theatre where actors wore masks called persona to show the part they were [...]
