When our temples fall, we discover that God has always been with us – in the changes, chances, and chaos of life; in the pain, loss, and disappointment.Stone by stone, God rebuilds our lives. Stone by stone, God restores the original beauty of our life and world. Stone by stone, a new temple arises from the rubble.
What did I learn from the night my life changed?
Love Demands Everything

Love Demands Everything


September 8, 2019Grace Episcopal Church (Camden, S.C.)Philemon 1-21 and Luke 14:25-33
Through our highs and our lows, our hopes and our fears, our wins and our losses... We are in this together.
As I was riding in the back of Ismael’s truck, with my family safe and on the way to meet friends, I texted my mom and sisters. I joked that we hopped in some guys truck to hitch a ride, and my sister replied back saying “You’re not supposed to take rides from strangers :-)”Here’s what I told her: “Nobody is a stranger in Houston right now. These folks can’t get to their house, but they have a truck so they are helping others.”That is kingdom hospitality. That is the kingdom of God.
But this love, God’s love, just as likely to bring us stress and division rather than peace and harmony.And this is Good News.
One reality of life is waiting; waiting for someone to show up, for something to happen, for things to change.
This has to stop. And we have to change the way we speak to and about each other.
John 17:20-26Jesus prayed for his disciples, and then he said. "I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. Father, I desire that those also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world."Righteous Father, the world does not know you, but I know you; and these know that you have sent me. I made your name known to them, and I will make it known, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them."
