Merry Christmas!

O God, you make us glad by the yearly festival of the birth of your only Son Jesus Christ: Grant that we, who joyfully receive him as our Redeemer, may with sure confidence behold him when he comes to be our Judge; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Please join us for worship on Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning!
Safe travels if you will be traveling.
Wishing you all the blessings of the season.
Fr. Knute and the Calvary Staff

God loves cheerful givers–2Corinthians 9


This coming Sunday, November 12, wraps up this year’s pledge campaign.  We are asking our members and friends of the parish to submit their pledge cards this Sunday, as an act of worship, or to mail them if they are unable personally to be present in church.

Your faithfulness in pledging is what enables us to continue doing the many good things Calvary is doing in our city, for our members, and for the community at large.  Money for ministry does not fall from the sky; it must be provided by those who believe in what we are doing.

As one of our Vestry members mentioned in her stewardship talk this past Sunday, however, the most important aspect of pledging is not that it raises money for ministry–even though that is crucial.  The most important part of pledging is that it gives us an opportunity to be thankful, and generous, and to trust God for our daily provision.

Lest we imagine this is just pious talk concocted by modern clergy, it would be wise to remember 2Corinthians 9:1-9.  The point of the passage is very simple: Paul is encouraging the Corinthians to give generously, not only because it will help others, but because it will help the Corinthians themselves.

The key line is one we quote often: God loves cheerful givers.  Did you know the act of giving can actually make us cheerful!  Don’t believe it?  Try it.  Surprise someone with a gift, and see how the joy becomes contagious.

God is so excited about the power of generosity, 2Corinthians 9:1-9 promises special blessings for those who are generous.  What about you?  Are you willing to put God’s promise to the test?

Taste and see that the Lord is good!

See you Sunday!

A Prayer for Morning Devotions

Gracious and loving God, in you we live and move and have our being.  We humbly pray you so to guide and govern us by your Holy Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations of our life we may not forget you, but may remember that we are ever walking in your sight, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Sunday, November 5

Jesus was different.
Jesus calls his followers to be different.
It is challenging to really follow Jesus.
Saints are people who try to follow.
Some follow more faithfully than others.
All need God’s love, God’s help, God’s guidance,
and God’s forgiveness.

We admire especially those great saints who have followed especially faithfully, and those who are following faithfully now.
They give us examples to follow.

We are thankful for all the saints who have tried,
in their own way,
to be faithful.
And we remember the impact that they,
particularly those who have been close to us,
have had on our lives.

We join this Sunday, November 5, in worship to remember and praise God for them, and to pray that, with them, we too may someday enter into God’s nearer presence, surrounded by people who, from every family, language, people, and nation, have responded to Jesus’ persistent call:
Come, follow me!

A Morning Resolve to Love God, our Neighbor, and Ourselves

The Gospel Lesson for Sunday, October 29 is the Great Commandment to love God, and to love our neighbor.

As you seek to love God, your neighbor, and yourself, you may find this prayer a helpful way to start your day:

I will try this day to live a simple, sincere and serene life, repelling promptly every thought of discontent, anxiety, discouragement, impurity, and self-seeking; cultivating cheerfulness, magnanimity, charity, and the habit of holy silence; exercising economy in expenditure, generosity in giving, carefulness in conversation, diligence in appointed service, fidelity to every trust, and a childlike faith in God.

In particular I will try to be faithful in those habits of prayer, work, study, physical exercise, eating, and sleep which I believe the Holy Spirit has shown me to be right.

And as I cannot in my own strength do this, nor even with a hope of success attempt it, I look to thee, O Lord God my Father, in Jesus my Savior, and ask for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
