Lent III – Year B (2018)

Exodus 20:1-17; Psalm 19; 1 Corinthians 1:18-25; John 2:13-22

Eric Prachar

The scene of Jesus driving the money changers out of the temple reminds us of the hazards of viewing the modern church as just another voice in the consumer marketplace. Rather than putting our energy into building a human institution that presents a message of success and measures results in numbers, we are called to open our hearts and share what we have in reaching out in service to those in need.

Lent II – Year B (2018)

Genesis 17:1-7,15-16; Psalm 22:22-30; Romans 4:13-25; Mark 8:31-38

Ian Edgar

Faith is having trust in things we can’t see, acknowledging that we need something that goes beyond what we can see and control ourselves. It is a gift that enables us to deal with uncertainty, to stop worrying about things over which we have no power and to live in the confidence of God’s unfailing love.

Epiphany VI – Year B

2 Kings 2:1-12; Psalm 50:1-6; 2 Corinthians 4:3-6; Mark 9:2-9

Eric Prachar

As we approach Ash Wednesday, the story of the Transfiguration of Jesus gives us much to reflect on. The mysterious events from which the disciples sought certainty parallel our own anxiety with uncertainty. As we climb toward deeper knowledge of God we may become more aware of how much we don’t know. Like the disciples we are commanded to listen to Jesus, to lean on his teaching. By offering ourselves in service we gain new insight.

Epiphany IV – Year B

Deuteronomy 18:15-20; Psalm 111; 1 Corinthians 8:1–13; Mark 1:21-28

Rev. Dale Nikkel

Sometimes our attitudes toward food reflect what we believe. Although we may feel liberated from strict views of dietary laws, there are questions of example to consider. Will the choices we make become a hindrance to someone else? In a society that values personal freedom above all else, the call to surrender some choices for the good of others is difficult to hear. Nevertheless, we are encouraged to show love, honour and respect for others through simple acts of self-sacrifice.
