Good Shepherd Continues to Serve our Ministries Responsibly during the Pandemic

Good Shepherd is continuing to serve our various ministries responsibly. Last week Arianne+ shared with the vestry that the church had an abundance of toilet paper and cleaning supplies in stock that were going unused since the church is closed. The vestry agreed to donate these supplies to Asylee Women Enterprise (AWE), an organization that supports asylum seekers in a myriad of ways. Good Shepherd has partnered with them for almost three years, and Arianne+ serves on their board. Since the pandemic, AWE has worked with volunteers to create pop-up pantries and deliver food and supplies to people in need. Good Shepherd was able to contribute about 125 rolls of toilet paper, hand soap, and h

"What Things?"

The sermon starts at about minute 8:30. The gospel text is Luke 24:13-35 It’s good to be with you this morning. Good to come together even if we can’t really be together. Good to hear the word of God. Good to pray. Good to sing. Good to hear recite the psalms, ancient prayers of the people – hallelujah Good to remember on the third Sunday of Easter – that we are Easter people. We believe in new life. We believe in life everlasting. We believe in resurrection. Yes – all of that is good – and – it’s not good. This is hard.

Easter Beyond Expectation

“Do not be afraid,” the angel says, “I know that you are looking for Jesus – but he is not here.” (Matthew 28:1-10) The gospel/sermon begins at 7:14 in the video below. Last year on Easter Sunday – the headline of the Baltimore Sun proclaimed “Superbowl Sunday for churches.” The smiling photo of a colleague graced the cover and she along with other priests and pastors interviewed basically agreed - that yes, Easter Sunday is our version of Superbowl Sunday each spring. Because we know that no matter our typical size, we will be preaching to what will probably be the biggest crowd we’re gonna see on a Sunday morning all year.

Participate in Your Transformation!

This morning we hear from Paul's letter, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds." (Romans 12:2) Do you remember Romper Room? I remember watching the 'teacher' in the show hold up a mirror and say, "I see Amy, I see Charlie, I see Julie." Of course she didn't literally see them - or did she? She saw them in her heart and mind. She saw all the children, like me, who were watching at home. And she made us feel like we were there, like we were part of that magic garden in Romper Room. This week we are getting conformed to being at home, to keeping a safe distance, to managing our anxiety. We are getting conformed to a new reality. A scary reality.
