Karpos Kalos

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

November 19, 2017 - The Rev. Canon Michael Durning was our guest preacher today. We love to invite him when Dunedin celebrates the Celtic Festival in November because Canon Durning enjoys our Kirkin' o' the Tartans, is an accomplished Scottish Country Dancer (we get to see a bit of that), and he totally rocks a kilt. Plus, he brings the Word of God to bear on life today. Watch the service here; the sermon begins at 37:00.

Begging for Reformation - SERMON

A pitfall of having your Episcopal priest graduate from a Lutheran seminary is that she's pretty fond of the last Sunday in October, thinking that the work of Reformation begun 500 years ago by Martin Luther should carry on a bit longer. Read the sermon here, listen to the sermon …See More

Today we heard from the President of Dunedin Cares, our local food pantry; supporting them is one of our favorite ways of holding God's people in our hearts. Listen to the sermon here.If you'd like to SEE the sermon…See More
