Walking the Way

“Walking the Way” is our process we’re using to reflect on God’s generosity to us and our practical response to that generosity in terms of time, talent and treasure. You will see “Walking the Way” under Calendar & News in the menus above, and you can read there the stewardship reflections from our members and from people in the wider church.

April 19, 2015 at St. Paul’s

We are in the midst of the Great Fifty Days of Easter, a time for building momentum as the people of God. We proclaim “Alleluia! Christ is risen!” all year long, but in this season we sometimes add a few extra “Alleluias” along the way.

Teach with Authority … and Don’t Get Puffed Up

Today we have three lessons that on the surface appear to have little to do with each other. In Deuteronomy, amid a very long list of regulations, we find rules governing what a prophet should – and should not – say and how people ought to respond to it. Paul writes to the believers in Corinth concerning a dispute over whether it is permissible to eat meat that has been sacrificed in the temple – and in the process delves into the use and misuse of knowledge. And we have Mark’s account of Jesus drawing a demon out of a man and the witnesses commenting on how he teaches with “authority.”
