February 24: Titled this, “Living in the Land of Egypt”, guest preacher, The Reverend Canon Paul-Gordon Chandler, addresses through the lens of the Genesis story of Joseph, two very real dimensions to life; real hardship and real Divine faithfulness.
Feb 17: Dean Laird preaches.
March 10: Dean Laird preaches that the church sends us an invitation to a holy Lent, to prayer, to silence, to self examination, to reading Scripture, to meditation, to Sabbath, to take the time.
Lent is a journey in the clear air of the desert, it’s a chance, it’s a gift, it’s a way to lead us to the goal of all desire. So go into the desert, and while it is stark and frightening, God awaits us. We know already what Jesus didn’t, that the end of this lenten journey is Easter.
Feb 10: Canon Mary Haddad preaches.
Jan 27: Dean Laird highlights the parallels between the people of Israel remembering who they were after returning to Israel and Jesus understanding who he is and declaring his mission to bring good news to the poor. How does knowing that we are loved, blessed and members of the body of Christ influence the way we understand ourselves and do the work we are called to do?
Jan 20: Canon Mary Haddad pays homage to praise poet Mary Oliver using the wedding banquet imagery of the water into wine transformation story.
Jan 13: Bishop Pierre Whalon preaches during his visitation and celebration of baptisms at the Cathedral.
Jan 6: Epiphany celebrates inclusion for all people, and epiphanies bring new revelation to our existing ways of thinking or behaving. Dean Laird challenges us to remember that God is always bigger, more inclusive and more creative that we can imagine.
Dec 30: On the sixth day of Christmas, Dean Laird compares how the four Gospels talk about the birth of Christ. What does “the Word became flesh” mean to us today?
Dec 25: Dean Laird invites us to reflect upon three ways we may experience Christmas: through the expectations of a child, in the shadows of grief or nostalgia, or in the daylight of Christmas morning reality.
