This album visits key emblems associated with Rome's beginnings: the Forum and the Capitoline Hill with its statue of the she-wolf and Romulus and Remus; the Emperor Augustus's palace and ceremonial altar, and the 17th Century D'Arpino frescos of ...

Jesus is inviting his followers to a life of an expanding heart, mind and soul. Jesus is inviting us to the struggle to wake up and grow wise. Jesus’ teaching is hard, even humiliating and it takes our entire life--struggling with these hard teachings is our call will we stay or will we walk away?由Holy Communion
 
There are plenty of Goliaths out there. There are plenty of shiny, slick, powerful forces, and the world is very impressed. But don't confuse largeness with rightness. Don't equate a win in the Supreme Court with God's endorsement. For that matter don’t confuse an institutional church's opinion with God's. God doesn't see as humans see. The way thr…
 
The Rev. Julie Graham preaches her first sermon at Holy Communion. When we encounter the Holy Spirit, she calls us to the work of listening with our hearts...seeking to understand, rather than correct, to restore rather than reject, to be confused at times rather than to consistently be in control.

Beholding the unconventional, but also unquestionable work of the Spirit, they face the question: are you ready?…
 
This, friends, is the radical dream of Jesus: that his followers would exercise a different kind of power. Jesus imagined a world where power was exercised differently, where we understood power differently. In the Kingdom of God, or as Dr. King translated, in the beloved community, power is measured in compassion, in healing. Power is measured by …

This story is a miracle. Thomas, like so many before him, is healed by Christ's touch. Healed of his grief, of his disbelief. Easter tells us there are Truths which are universal. There are Truths which outlast even the worst news. There is Truth worth believing.由Holy Communion

What are the systems that structure our world to which God says, zealously, furiously, NO? Where in our common life do we find Jesus turning over tables? How are those systems that God condemns—the inequality, injustice and exploitation we call sin—thriving among us, we who are the temple of God?由Holy Communion
