The Simplest Way to Change the World

Posted onJune 4, 2018 | by: Fr. Ross Guthrie | 0 comments

What’s the simplest way to change the world? It’s practicing Christian hospitality. All of us want to make a difference in our world for Christ. But frankly, days roll by and not much changes. Christian hospitality is an easy way to break the cycle. We all have neighbors that would much rather enter our living room than a church. Simple Christian hospitality is a natural and effective way of building relationships for Christ....Keep Reading

Update on Church Planting

Every church you’ve ever been a part of was once a church plant. And All Saints is no exception. Fourteen years ago, a group of thirty-plus people committed themselves to one another in the Anglican tradition, and a church was planted. Fourteen years later, miracle after miracle, God has grown this church to a place where we’re now making disciples of almost 300 people. Church planting and making disciples—they go together....Keep Reading

Over the last few months, the Vestry has been prayerfully exploring how to best proceed with the development of our property. Typically, churches form an oversight committee that bears the full responsibility of the project from start to finish. However, the more the Vestry investigated the kinds of skills and gifts that will be required along the way, the more they began to realize that a more flexible approach was needed....Keep Reading

Stations of the Cross

Posted onFebruary 1, 2018 | by: Fr. Ross Guthrie | 0 comments

The Way of the Cross, or traditionally, the Stations of the Cross, is a spiritual practice of the worship and adoration of Jesus as we contemplate his journey to the Cross. The prophet Isaiah cried out, “He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed” (Is. 53:5). It is a pilgrimage into the sufferings of Jesus as we recall the scenes of his life prior to his death on the Cross....Keep Reading

The 12 Days of Christmas, a Season Worth Waiting for...

Posted onDecember 27, 2017 | by: Brian Larsen Wells | 0 comments

Waiting, waiting, waiting. That is the theme of Advent, as we reflect together upon our call to wait patiently for the light of Christ. Of course, we know that, for the children in our Church, waiting is no easy thing. They wait for Christmas with a type of ravenous expectation that is hard to find anywhere else, any time else. Indeed, is there any moment that we await as eagerly as do children await Christmas morning?...Keep Reading

Advent begins every year at the same time: the Sunday four weeks before Christmas, as it has since the 700s. Each year, I feel His Spirit among us as we anticipate the great feast of the Incarnation, Christmas. I feel like a little kid again except that my anticipation for Christmas gifts is replaced with the wonder of Christ’s Incarnation....Keep Reading
