• Sermon: His Name is Compassion (August 7, 2016)
    Mercy is a not just a word, it is a name and a Person. It is closely aligned and inseparable from another word which is also a name and a person – that word is Compassion. It is a name that God gives himself.

  • Sermon: Faith Lets Go (July 31, 2016)
    Often in the Gospel stories, when Jesus brings hope, comfort and healing, detractors often show up. Like the scribes in today’s story.

  • The Wheel Orthodox Christian Journal
    The Wheel seeks to articulate the Gospel intelligently and constructively for the the twenty-first century, a pluralistic era when the social identity of Christian faith and its role in public discourse present new and unique challenges.

Spiritual Quotes

Our real journey in life is interior;
It is a matter of growth, deepening,
and of an ever greater surrender
to the creative action of love and grace
in our hearts.
Never was it more necessary to respond
to that action.

      - Thomas Merton

Mercy is a not just a word, it is a name and a Person. It is closely aligned and inseparable from another word which is also a name and a person – that word is Compassion.
