Blackout! | The Rev. Dr. Anna S. Pearson, Rector

Even though I have lived in Manhattan a few times over the course of my life, I had never experienced a blackout here. Saturday night was a first for me; sudden darkness everywhere, low power on my phone battery, concern over the location of my sons and the constant, wailing sirens that persisted throughout the hours without electricity. The time in darkness jolted me into the awareness of what I consistently take for granted. The experience was unsettling....

God and gods | The Rev. Dr. Anna S. Pearson, Rector

A number of years ago, I remember reading an article in Sojourners Magazine written by a woman who had experienced a lifetime of struggle with her weight. She described all of it: the calorie counting, the cycling through every institutional dieting program available, the cardio and resistance workouts, her feelings of shame when she was not at her “ideal weight” and her fear that any good news (as she defined it) from the scale at her morning weigh-in would only be temporary....

Seize The Moment | The Reverend Deacon Robert A. Jacobs

If we only live once, we must live our life meaningfully. Can you imagine what your life could have been if you did not delay when the opportunity was given. What if you studied before the exam?

The painting in the photograph below hangs in The Loveless Café—which, even though it sounds like a setting from a Carson McCullers short story, is actually a diner on the outskirts of Nashville, TN. Offerings there range from a full Country Breakfast to Fried Catfish and Barbeque. Gravy is plentiful. And the biscuits are amazing. Even people who don’t eat meat leave feeling full—very full!--and satisfied. The walls are lined with autographed photos of celebrities, many of them from the world of country music. The folks who work there make all visitors feel at home, and the line of people waiting for a table often spills out into the parking lot....

Blessings of Ordinary Time | The Rev. Susan E. Hill, Associate Rector

Starting this past Monday, the Church entered its longest season of the liturgical year -- often called Ordinary time. Technically speaking, it isn’t actually a season, but rather the time between the major seasons of the church calendar. The longest stretch of Ordinary time reaches from the Monday after the Feast of Pentecost (June 10 this year) all the way until the Saturday before the first Sunday of Advent....
