Posted by Will Lowry on

“Walk in love as Christ loved us and gave himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God.” I say these words each Sunday as we begin the transition from the Liturgy of the Word to the Liturgy of the Table - not that the two are separate in my mind - they are two parts of a...

When I arrived at St. Theodore’s there was a painting (I think in the Library) that is a depiction of Jesus laughing. Now his laugh wasn’t just a smiling chuckle. It was a throw your head back, mouth wide open, from the belly, boisterous laugh.  While I am not partial to such...

The month of July has been just berserk for me and my family. Planning for Arts Camp, working on curricula for Christian education, daily ins and outs, and of course, my father’s death. As I told Ivee a few days ago (I think that’s when it was anyway), “July has been so long I...

My Dear Friends, On Wednesday, March 6th we began the journey into the season we call Lent. We began with the messiness of Ash Wednesday and then follow Jesus into the wilderness. We will follow Jesus, slowly making our way to the cross in Jerusalem. This is sacred time in which we are called...

As I sat down to write to you on the eve of the New Year, a friend's message on social media reminded me of this beautiful poem. The words proclaim as well as any and better than most how to approach the coming year. My hope and prayer is that each of us will have the courage to reach out and...

December Message From The Rector

Posted by Will Lowry on

The season of busyness is upon us. The cold air always seems to usher in a sense of urgency, hectic schedules, and sometimes downright chaos. Some of you have commented to me when asking about my schedule, “I know you are so busy at this time of year”. While it may be true of my...
