With the beginning of ordinary time in the church calendar, we are taking two weeks to talk about the sacraments of baptism and Eucharist. I led off this week with Baptism. The first half includes mention of moldy walls, mikvahs, and menstrual cycles.
Fell a month behind with my updates around here! Been focus quite a lot on unplanned remodeling at our house. That’s a long story that I suppose will be told soon. In the meantime, backfilling some of the missed podcasts, and such.
I’m always thankful for a chance to offer a sermon in the Vox Veniae liturgy. This time around it happened to be Pentecost. Ssshhh, don’t tell anyone, but this was pretty similar to the first sermon I preached at Vox for Pentecost five or six years ago.
I think everytime someone has mentioned that they enjoy Buechner during a Sermonsmith recording, I with that conversation could go on longer. Isaac Anderson mentioned Buchner.
