Easter Day - Year B
March 31st, 2024

by The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer

If Mark’s gospel ends with the empty tomb, we are left with a terrifying reminder that our implicit pact with death is at an end. What we have is a God of life who overthrows almost everything we think we know about the world, creation, and the divine activity at work in our midst.

The Fifth Sunday in Lent - Year B
March 17th, 2024

by The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer

The falling of seed to earth, of death leading to life, of letting go leading to a something greater -- all of this and more is encapsulated in a few brief verses in John’s telling of the Gospel where Jesus’ followers are puzzled by the arrival of outsiders wishing to see Jesus. Jesus responds to the unexpected by pointing to a God who is preparing to write the future anew in our hearts.

Hiding in Plain SightHiding in Plain Sight

The Second Sunday in Lent - Year B
February 25th, 2024

by The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer

While in Mark, Jesus tells his followers to remain quiet about so much, he openly declares his teachings about the cross to the crowds. Hiding in plain sight is God’s confrontation in Christ with the evils of this world, and an abiding witness to the promise of a new understanding, a new way, a new world. With gratitude this week to the work of the Rev. John Kirkley.
