Directions to Christ Church

Happy Secular New Year!

By Daniel P. Richards | January 2, 2020

Every year I take a certain pride in reminding everyone who will listen that the Christian new year begins on the first Sunday of Advent. But in truth, I sit down at the beginning of the secular year and rewrite my personal rule of life. I go over the past year and rearrange my priorities…

The 12 Days of Christmas

By Daniel P. Richards | December 26, 2019

The middle of Christmas usually means some mix of dinner, nap, and football in my anticipation. But that is because I have a poor pagan definition of Christmas. Christmas is not one day, as I have reminded the congregations of several parishes over the last two decades.  Christmas is a twelve day feast that moves…

Christmas in Red and Green

By Daniel P. Richards | December 19, 2019

Like most people, I associate Christmas with red and green. Wrapping paper, cards, even that weird elf that spies on your kids is red and green. (I really don’t get the Elf on a Shelf thing.) But neither Advent nor Christmas is celebrated in red or green in church. Blue or purple is the color…

Bearing the Light of Christ

By Daniel P. Richards | December 11, 2019

John the Baptist came before Jesus wearing camel’s hair clothing and a leather belt around his waist. He went before Jesus to prepare us for his coming. He came as a prophet to a people who had gotten complacent and selfish.  He asked the people of Israel to be baptized for both the forgiveness of…

Advent 2

By Daniel P. Richards | December 5, 2019

“It has sometimes been said that Anglicanism has a particular insight into the mystery of the Incarnation. Rome, it has been said, focuses on the glory of the Cross, and Orthodoxy on the mystery of the Resurrection; the Reformed Churches are transfixed by the Sovereignty of God and Pentecostals by the Coming of the Holy Ghost;…

Note for Advent 1 2019

By Daniel P. Richards | November 26, 2019

“The difference between a path and a road is not only the obvious one. A path is little more than a habit that comes with knowledge of a place. It is a sort of ritual of familiarity. As a form, it is a form of contact with a known landscape. It is not destructive. It…

Crowning Christ as King

By Daniel P. Richards | November 21, 2019

Jesus’s crown was a twisted laurel wreath of thorns. In his suffering he is revealed as king, though not the king either the people around him expected or we want today. He is not a king like the kings of this world. He is not going to conquer you. He is not going to destroy…

Stewardship: Walking Like Jesus

By Daniel P. Richards | November 14, 2019

When I was a teenager in Mississippi, there was this one kid who was a little older and way cooler than me.  Well, he was cooler than anyone else at the school. And he walked just like Michael Jordan. It is this long stride, lanky casual gait that just looked totally relaxed even when moving…

Seabury Sunday next Weekend!!!

By Daniel P. Richards | November 7, 2019

Bring some bangers and mash a week early. Every year for more than a decade, we have celebrated Seabury Sunday with bagpipes, drums, tartans, and flags. Next weekend we will celebrate the first bishop to be consecrated for the nascent American Episcopal Church. This is the birthday for our denomination, and a chance to sneak…

Come to Evensong

By Timothy J. Watt | October 31, 2019

“Now as we come to the setting of the sun, and our eyes behold the vesper light, we sing thy praises O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” (Book of Common Prayer, p 64)  These words come from an ancient prayer called the Phos Hilaron, so named from its original Greek wording.  In English we…
