Lent 8

The Rev. Canon Leonard Hamlin: Let’s commit to going a little further as we walk this journey of life and faith!

Lent 9

Lent 14

The Rev. Melissa Hollerith: No, the real test of his faith is measured by what he does when he isn’t terrified.

The Rev. Andrew K. Barnett: We, too, should question any unholy alliance between faith and empire.

Lent 24

The Rev. Canon Rose Duncan: It is so easy for me to believe that I have everything in my control until I don’t ...

Lent 25

The Rev. Canon Jan Cope: What family argument are we leveling because we are sure we are in the right?

Lent 26

Dean Randy Hollerith: Even at that young age, I realized that like Herod, I too needed convincing.

Lent 27

Lent 29

The Rev. Canon Leonard Hamlin: Has God done enough for you to believe or are you looking for another sign?

Lent 41

The Rev. Canon Dana Corsello: I rest in the assurance that God will right everything on Easter Sunday.
