Psalm 122:1. I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” In this passage from Psalm, the house of the Lord that’s being referenced is actually Jerusalem. But for most of us today, we probably think of church, and St. Thomas specifically, as the...

Exodus 4:10. But Moses said to the Lord, “O my Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor even now that you have spoken to your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” God calls each of us to do works of love great and small. These often require us...

Psalm 126:7. Those who go out weeping, carrying the seed, will come again with joy, shouldering their sheaves. In Psalm 126 the people recall the joy of their happy return from exile (v. 1-3), but it is now only a memory and the psalm turns from remembrance to a prayer for a comparable...

Exodus 3:3. Then Moses said, “I must turn aside and look at this great sight, and see why the bush is not burned up.” Earlier in this passage of scripture, we learn that Moses had fled Egypt because he had murdered an Egyptian soldier. He then found himself in the land of Midian...

1 Corinthians 13:1. If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. Years ago, I threw a big party for my husband's 35th birthday and, among other details, I decided we needed a signature cocktail for the event. Several weeks...

Mark 8:29. Jesus asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Messiah.” Jesus didn’t squarely fit into the boxes that people of his day had created for him. After his feeding of the thousands and the healing of the sick, lame and...

1 Corinthians 12:4-6. Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. We all have gifts and God wants us to recognize them and...

Mark 8:4. His disciples replied, “How can one feed these people with bread here in the desert?” We are called to live without fear. What that means for me in practice is remembering to appreciate the things we have. Breathe in gratitude...breathe out entitlement. When my father...

Psalm 32:12. Be glad, you righteous, and rejoice in the Lord; shout for joy, all who are true of heart. When Father Lex taught the psalms in Adult Form, I noted in the margin of Psalm 32, “refuge/folded into God,” a descriptive phrase he used. Verse 12, written in the...
