The Rev. Mike Angell preaches on All Saints Day: Your faith isn't just yours. Your faith was passed down to you. Never forget that, and know when you come down the aisle of church, when you sing a song of the saints of God, when you stand around the table, you are not alone. The communion of the saints, all the saints is here to. So take off your g…
 
Part of why we need to be careful about Halloween is because there are so many stories around us that associate evil with women's bodies, with other cultures, with those who are different. Specific evils: Racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, age-ism, these evils haunt us. Real concrete harm is done when we allow these forces to run amok. Some moder…
 
A group of HOCO volunteers have been connecting with other St. Louis non-profits, this summer, to understand where the biggest housing needs are, and how a congregation like Holy Communion might help the housing insecure of St. Louis. That team of volunteers now wants to engage the congregation to discuss "the menu" of options that they have collec…

On Sunday we celebrate the Feast of St. Francis, the culmination of a short "Season of Creation" in the church. Today for the Forum, the rector is joined by a University City resident, theologian, and storyteller Belden Lane, who asks us to engage questions of ecology and nature as a spiritual practice of talking with trees.…
 
It's because of the over-individualization of faith that we struggle with this Gospel about plucking out eyes and severing limbs. Jesus is talking rhetorically, asking people to tend to their relationships. How can we broaden our sense, in the church, of who counts? In order to make the kind of change our world so desperately needs, we're going to …
 
In the midst of our "Season of Creation" our rector interviews Dr. Rachel Penczykowski, assistant professor of biology at Washington University studying "disease ecology." We talk about climate change, disease/host interactions, and about faith in response to human driven environmental change. Join us Sunday September 26 at 9am on the Front Lawn of…
 
The wisdom of the cross asks us to see the painful truths, to see the suffering of climate change, not to avert our gaze, and the wisdom of the cross asks us to also see the beauty that can happen even in the ugliest of situations. The wisdom of the cross is that dread does not have the last word. There is always a reason to hope. There is always a…
 
Tired of the pandemic? Frustrated by vax deniers? Angered by so many preventable deaths? Us, too! Join the Rev. Marc Smith, our priest associate for a discussion of the plagues which descended on Ancient Egypt and eventually forced Pharoah to "let God's people go." God's message to the people of Israel, as well as the Egyptian empire, have much to …
 
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. Participating in God's work, the work of healing, …
 
This week on the Forum: our rector is in conversation with our consultant, Hannah Shanks who has been working with Grace Gathering since the Rev. Laurie’s departure. Grace gathering is a welcoming worship experience for people of diverse ages, abilities, and faith journeys. It is a place where families and caregivers worship along-side those they c…
 
This Mother's Day, an unconventional sermon. The rector invited three mothers in the congregation to talk about their experience of mothering. We give thanks for Debbie Nelson-Linck, Karen Payne, Emilee Walker Cornetta, and all mothers and those who practice mothering virtues.由Holy Communion
 
The early church in Acts encounters God’s Spirit working in people who are unlike them, that perhaps may even offend them, and as they do, they are invited to convert all over again to the way of God in Christ. 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 forum is part of our ongoing discussion around housing policy. Professor Todd Swantrom has studied housing policy and justice throughout his career. He came to St. Louis, in part, to study the "most depopulated city in the world." He talks about the concept of gentrification and asks whether St. Louis is actually experiencing its effects.Click…
 
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
 
Our seminarian takes us through the different layers of Biblical interpretation using the Song of Songs. How have Christians interpreted this sensual love poems? What can in mean for us today? Join us for virtual coffee hour Sunday at 11:30am for a discussion of today’s forum.由Holy Communion
