Homily, April 13, 2014

Matthew 26:14-27:66
What do you prefer to have in your hand today? The palm? The thirty pieces of silver? The Eucharistic bread which was celebrated on this night in this gospel and which we will receive here? A pillow for sleep? The defending sword? The helpful touch of the cross like that of Simon of Cyrene? The nails and the hammer?...

Homily, April 6, 2014

John 11:1-3,7,17,20-45
I think we've all heard the story of Lazarus many times in our lives. Ironically, this account only appears in John's gospel. Matthew, Mark, and Luke do not mention it at all. And you can imagine that biblical scholars all have different suppositions of why this is. But that's not my focus this morning...
