Jhn 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)     full of grace and truth.

Advent IV Sermon (rough draft) Dec 23 2018 Fr. Michael Cawthon

In the fourth Sunday of Advent, as last week, we have John the Baptist brought forth in the Gospel reading. It is very obvious that the preaching of John the Baptist concerning the imminent judgement of God upon His People and the world, and the establishment of The Kingdom, was causing great excitement and stirring up the people of Jewry (the Jewish people.) Because of this testimony of John the Baptist, the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem from their council, men of learning and of great gravitas and authority. (Although in reality, they were sent with one purpose, [...]

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 2 Dec 9 2018 Fr. Michael Cawthon

Advent 2 2018 Fr. Michael Cawthon In the Collect this morning we read “Blessed Lord, who hast caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our learning; Grant that we may in such wise hear them, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest them”… and in the Epistle we hear “Whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning … and then the Gospel speaks of coming of the son of man…”for your redemption draweth nigh.” As well we read of Jesus cleansing the Temple because the people had made God’s house “a house of thieves.” And now this morning, [...]
