Everything at RiskEverything at Risk

Proper 18 - Year C
September 8th, 2019

by The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer

When Jesus lays out the cost of discipleship, it is in the starkest possible terms. Everything is on the line, including our most intimate and hallowed relationships, and perhaps even those things we so often take for granted: our sense of individual autonomy and control. The cost of discipleship means putting everything at risk for the sake of God’s love and so we can only expect one thing: that everything in our lives will be changed.

Proper 13 (Year C)
August 4th, 2019

by The Rev. Br. Richard Edward Helmer

Jesus, along with the ancient prophets, knows our habit of making pacts with death. From our greed to our obsession with weapons we think will protect us, we end up in the age-old problem of making human sacrifice to gods that deal in death and violence. Our God is different, and our God is calling us to a radically different way of being.
