Karpos Kalos

Wisdom from above is . . . full of mercy and good fruits

I'm on an adventure with a congregation that has been around for over 125 years. Venerable old vines are producing fresh new fruit.

What we sing and talk about at Christmas is getting ready for the birth of a baby. What we really need to do, though, is ask ourselves whether we actually believe. In God. At all. Otherwise, there is no point in waiting for anything much new to happen.  Read the sermon here, listen to it …

The Human One - SERMON by Deacon Cindy Roehl

Jesus - fully human and fully divine! That's what our Church teaches. So, what is a "fully human" person like? In looking at the life of Jesus, we see humanity as it was meant to be. He was available, generous, a "man for others." He was not at all concerned with acquiring, feathering his next, or dying with the most toys. Whom should Christians emulate: the Human One, or the various politicians, celebrities and world figures vying to be the King (or Queen) of the Hill? Watch the sermon …

WHAT DOES "KARPOS KALOS" MEAN?

"Karpos kalos" literally means, in Greek, "fruit good". The inspiration for using it is James 3:17, which says "But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy." More . . .

What Are We Waiting For? - SERMON

Some readings are perplexing! Time and again, Jesus tells people to share, to travel light, to avoid attachments to stuff. How can it be that stingy bridesmaids are "wise."  Maybe the lesson is not about the oil, eh? Maybe it's about choices and consequences. Read the sermon here, listen…See More
