Sermons from “Traditional Service”

The Rev. Canon Victor Lee Austin, Ph.D.

Traditional Service, “Naming and Obedience”

The year begins with a story of obedience, but what is obedience, really? It is not to submit to another’s will, but to hear, to understand, and to act accordingly. The almost unbelievable truth is that God wants to share his mind with us.

Fr. Thomas Kincaid

Traditional Service, “Who are you and why are you here?”

In a convoluted Gospel text, two questions emerge: Who is Jesus? And why are his followers there listening? These two questions are, at their core, about power. What power do we need to show up in our lives?

Bishop Anthony Burton

Traditional Service, “This Is the Record of John”

Neither the Scriptures, nor John the Baptist, nor Jesus resolves or dissolves the mystery of God; they reveal God: they show us his face.
