  • Sermon: Ego and Humility (Sep 3, 2017)
    There is always a danger that we will try and use Jesus for our personal gain. Those who practice the way of using Christianity for egoic self-interest clearly do not know the Jesus they claim to represent.

  • Sermon: The Ultimate Letting Go (August 27, 2017)
    The Rich Man could not yet let of his riches. The question is, what “riches” are we holding onto so tightly that we too could not pass through the eye of a needle and into the kingdom of heaven?

Spiritual Quotes

Whenever we’re led out of normalcy into sacred, open space, it’s going to feel like suffering, because it is letting go of what we’re used to. This is always painful at some level. But part of us has to die if we are ever to grow larger (John 12:24). If we’re not willing to let go and die to our small, false self, we won’t enter into any new or sacred space.

     - Richard Rohr

It is shameful of course and frightening the way so many people fall for it. We must be careful that we do not fall ourselves into such obvious corruption. Those who practice the way of using Christianity for egoic self-interest clearly do not know the Jesus they claim to represent. Read more »
 

The Ultimate Letting Go

August 27, 2017 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
The Rich Man could not yet let of his riches. The question is, what 'riches' are we holding onto so tightly that we too could not pass through the eye of a needle and into the kingdom of heaven? I’m not going to try and make a list of all the passages that speak of this. One of them that comes to mind is that we must love God more than father, mother, sister, brother, etc. If you think a little, I’m sure you could come up with several more. Read more »
