Sermons delivered at The Episcopal Church of Our Saviour, Mill Valley, California: A welcoming community for those seeking to deepen their relationship with God, and to journey in faith with God's people through the breaking of bread and in service to others, in Christ's name.
(The Seventh Sunday of Easter: The Sunday after the Ascension (Year B) - The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer) Ascensiontide is all about Christ making room for something far greater than we have yet experienced or can imagine.
God Our Mother
(The Sixth Sunday of Easter (Year B) - SuEllen Pommier) Christ chose each of us to dwell in a divine love often reflected to us in the very best love we received from our mothers.
All There Is
(The Fifth Sunday of Easter (Year B) - The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer) Jesus' powerful metaphor of the vine teaches us how to begin to see ourselves, and even the whole universe, through God's eyes.
Prayers of the Good Shepherd
(The Fourth Sunday of Easter - The Rev. Gerald Caprio) Among our most ancient prayers stand the Psalms, which continue to offer us some of the best spiritual practice our tradition contains.
Beyond a Good Friday World
(The Third Sunday of Easter (Year B) - The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer) While the world of power, violence, and death teaches us that death is the end, the Risen Christ comes to remind us -- beyond our imaginations and doubts -- that in an Easter life, God calls us to something entirely new.
An Embodied Easter
(The Second Sunday of Easter - The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer) While we often focus on the doubts of Thomas, we can miss what the Risen Christ is teaching us about the importance of the body, and God's loving solidarity with our embodied nature.
