On April 6th, I preached and presided at Grace for the first time since my husband’s death in February. As I was preparing for my return, I had to laugh when I saw that the Gospel reading for the day was the raising of Lazarus as recorded in John 11. So, click the link below to listen to the sermon. Please note that at about the 8:30 mark there is about a 3 minute span of time with spotty audio as the congregation and I engaged in dialogue about how the Son of God was glorified at Grace during the time that I was away. You might want to fast forward through that, or perhaps not.

Here is the sermon for the Festival of the Epiphany. The readings for the day are Isaiah 60:1-2, Psalm 72, Ephesians 3:1-12, Matthew 2:1-12. The text for the sermon is Isaiah 60:1-2.
Please note that the first part of the sermon included a poster board with an outline of a light bulb. And our references to “Brilliant!” were based upon the story “An Unexpected Christmas” by Simone Graham. Here is a link to the story:
And the reference to the baptism a couple of weeks ago brought laughter because the young one being baptized cried and screamed throughout the rite, but quieted in the waters.
