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.
Lest We Forget
(Juneteenth - The Rev. Gerry Caprio) The Juneteenth Feast Day was celebrated this year for the first time across the Diocese of California: In remembering Juneteenth we undertake the spiritual challenge of Amos and Jesus both to remember where we are called to love and serve true justice and freedom for all people, and never to forget the humility around where we have failed.
A Household of Small, Fragile Things
(The Third Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 6 - Track 2) - The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer) Jesus' parables open up for us a whole new way of understanding God's power at work among us: Whatever the world regards as futile, fragile, and even insignificant is where the reign of God breaks in.
It Isn't Working
(The Second Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 5 - Track 2) - The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer) Nothing is more natural than being products of our families and cultures, but Jesus challenges us to see that life in the Spirit calls us into a whole new way of being.
Trinity and Ego
(The First Sunday after Pentecost: Trinity Sunday - The Rev. Gerry Caprio) Trinity Sunday marks the midpoint of the Christian calendar year, and a transition into the spiritual work that we are to take up for the next six months.
(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.
