Sermon – The Holy Trinity ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

June 12, 2022 Today is Trinity Sunday-the only Sunday in the whole liturgical calendar year when we focus on a doctrine, rather than a biblical event. Still, this word, Holy Trinity, is not really a thing. It’s a relationship. This is one of those Sunday’s which reminds us that “some things just have to be believed to be seen.” In his beautiful book “Open Secrets,” Richard Lischer describes a stained-glass window at the church where he served in rural Illinois. It is called the Trinity window, and it uses triangles and Latin to depict a geometric diagram for God. In the center is a larger triangle which stands for God. Deus, it reads in Latin. And around that triangle are three smaller triangles, one for Pater (Father), another Filius (Son), and the third Spiritus Sanctus (Holy Spirit).

Sermon – The Holy Spirit ~ Deacon Heather Feltman

May 22, 2022 Jesus keeps saying it, keeps repeating it that night: Let not your heart be troubled. But it’s difficult to imagine a more troubling context in which to try to say such a thing! Jesus keeps talking about peace, but all hell is about to break loose on Jesus and on his band of followers. In fact, the mayhem at hand has already begun. Judas has already fled the table by the time Jesus says the words contained in our reading for today from John 14. What’s more, Peter’s impending denials of Jesus has also been foretold. The atmosphere is as taut as a snare drum. It is also unspeakably sad.
