Directions to Christ Church

Corona Virus or COVID-19: Response

By Daniel P. Richards | March 12, 2020

“Have peace.” This is what Jesus says over and over again in the New Testament when something profound is revealed. This seems to me to be more than simply, “Have faith.” Faith is trust or “belief in things not seen.” Faith is part of this, but the more difficult discipline is to have peace when…

Jesus as our Savior/Coronavirus, COVID-19, and Communion

By Daniel P. Richards | March 5, 2020

Jesus as our Savior Jesus is our savior. This phrase is central to the proclamation of the church, but not one you hear in conversation in the mainline world. Jesus has saved the world from the condemnation of sin. In Christ, God has forgiven us and offers us a righteousness that is not our own.…

Fasting, Prayer, and a Holy Lent

By Daniel P. Richards | February 27, 2020

Fasting, Prayer, and a Holy Lent Fasting is a regular part of Lenten practice and the practice most associated with Lent, but it is often misunderstood. Fasting is neither for penitence nor to earn God’s love or salvation.  Penitence is being sorrowful for sins, or the act of paying for sins through self-imposed suffering. It…

The Transfiguration and the Move from Epiphany to Lent

By Daniel P. Richards | February 20, 2020

Christmas and Epiphany move toward revelation. Christmas moves from the Incarnation in a lowly manger revealed mostly to shepherds to the coming of the astrologers “wise ones” from the East. The world is changed, and then the change is revealed. Epiphany begins with the wise ones visiting a toddler and ends with the man revealed…

The Image of God

By Daniel P. Richards | February 13, 2020

As we have looked at the theology of God in the church over the last few weeks, we have also been looking at how we view ourselves. The claim of the faith is that we have been given the power of God to become his children by Jesus, our first born brother.  The word we…

Old Photos of God

By Daniel P. Richards | February 6, 2020

We don’t have photographs of God. It is that simple. We don’t have old Polaroids or 35 millimeter prints, no daguerreotypes or pinhole camera images of the divine. We just have us.  God is known by his children. Jesus was the first-begotten, or “mono-genos” in Greek. But through Christ we have been given power to…

When Clergy Pray Together

By Daniel P. Richards | January 30, 2020

Up at Chapel Rock, the Bishop gathers the deacons and priests of the diocese for a time of reunion, recreation, and learning. The annual clergy conference is always a little bit like a call to better work and a family reunion.  Although we work just down the street from each other, it is the best…

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Holiness, and God

By Daniel P. Richards | January 23, 2020

King has never stood for holiness for me. Growing up in the South there were always rumors about the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., so hearing the FBI reports revealed in the last couple of years was a shock, but not a surprise. Nor are those reports easy to take at face value due…

“See. There is a God.”

By Daniel P. Richards | January 16, 2020

There are these little moments in our lives when we are simply overwhelmed by awe.  For me it was kneeling in an alleyway in Mexico during a medical mission where I was spiritual support. (Meaning I played soccer with the local kids while they waited for medical care.) Looking for shade, I had gone around…

The Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

By Timothy J. Watt | January 9, 2020

Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now; for it is proper for us in this way to fulfill all righteousness.”…
