“God gave so many gifts in One”

What a special time Christmas is. You only have to turn on the TV, drive down the street or go to the store; you see signs of Christmas pretty much everywhere. Christmas has become a season of busyness, full calendars, shopping, wrapping, eating and celebrating, but I believe what makes it special is because people […]

Reminders to faithful about who they are

St. Thomas Episcopal Church, on Park Street, is a church that marks time with a calendar. Who doesn’t, right? Our “sacred” calendar marks time similar with the “profane,” or secular, calendar but also deviates from it. What do I mean? The first day of the sacred calendar is the first Sunday of Advent, right about […]

Jesus laughed!

By Steve Dygert “Jesus wept,” is the shortest verse of the Bible, but wouldn’t it be great if Jesus was known as much as much for his laughter as for his sadness? Don’t you think Jesus’ laughter would be one of his strongest influences on us? I do, but the Bible is a little hazy […]
