    2 Corinthians 6:1-13
    Sometimes our efforts seem to fall upon deaf ears or an unappreciative audience. Paul recognized that no matter how hard he worked for those he led to Christ, not everyone was going to remain faithful. He instructs the church in Corinth to return to their faithful ways and to be more concerned with pleasing God rather than themselves and others.

    Romans 5:1-5
    It’s understandable why people question where God is in the midst of suffering…especially when we watch those who cheat to get ahead or seem to lead lives outside of what might be deemed righteous.  Paul seek to address this difficult topic in his address to the Romans.  But careful reading is required to fully understand how God is at work in the toughest times of our lives.

    In a time when more information is available at our fingertips than ever before in history, we can still find ourselves seeking answers that seem to elude us.  It feels at times as if we are living in a land of confusion.  Jesus asks us to open our eyes to witness what He is doing all around us and to focus our attention on the work of the Holy Spirit.

    John 14:8-14
    Like Abraham, we are sometimes called out of what we know. Even when this means leaving a place that is dangerous or unable to support us, there is still comfort in “knowing” a place or people. How does the Pentecost event help us to access a new paradigm to trust God with all that we are?

    Genesis 12:1-9
    Abraham is called the father of nations as well as being the exemplar of faith. While we view his call as nothing more than miraculous, the trust Abraham puts in God is equally extraordinary…at times. At other times, we find that Abraham exhibits some of the same moments of weakness we do. Yet, here we stand as a result of Abraham’s ability to heed the call of God.

    Matthew 6:1-8 
    As children, we are taught to be humble in receiving praise and to use our manners. On the other hand, we are also taught that our actions speak louder than our words. Jesus instructions during the Sermon on the Mount can be confusing regarding our witness and our piety.

    Spring demands a lot of attention. The end of school, the new garden and the seeming annual wedding season require that our energies be directed in a multitude of ways. Our split attention inevitably causes stress and worry at times. Yet we are called to release our worries and to put our focus on God who prides for our every need. It’s a comforting reminder that we are held in the hands of the creator!

    The Pitfalls of Superbia
    Series: (All)
    Mark 2:1-5 
    Superbia is the Latin word for pride, superiority, and lording over others. Many of our church fathers have pointed to this as a great source of sin in all of our lives, and something for us all to take note of in our own lives. We will also be taking a look at the many facets of the life of St. Augustine as well as how we should have awe in the face of Jesus as He was fully human and fully God
