When Earth Meets Heaven: A Reflection on Honduras

1 Corinthians 7:7…”Live lives with undivided devotion to God” In our busy North American lives, the above declaration from Paul seems elusive and nearly impossible. Yet when we go on mission and all other distractions are silenced, this undivided devotion all of a sudden comes within reach. When it does come within reach, we are able to physically see and sense that…

What is a Holy City Connects? – A Message from the Rector

Dear St. Michaelites: Recently using the prophet Nehemiah, I preached on the importance of building the ministry as Nehemiah built his wall with sword and trowel. We continue to build the discipleship ministry of St. Michael’s Church in three ways: First through Alpha which transforms hearts through the foundations of faith. Second through Life Groups which transforms hearts through community and discipleship.…

Fall 2017 Preaching and Teaching Series “Come to the Table”

Charleston has been described as a place for “foodies.” Foodies are those who don’t just love food, they love the “creative” creation of food as well as its consumption. I believe that Jesus too was a foodie. In fact its been said that throughout the life of Jesus, he was either coming from a meal or going to one. We break bread…

Summertime Devotional

Summertime devotional

There are times when I read a devotional that is so good I just want to pass it on.  This devotional written by Ray Stedman is one such bull’s eye on the Gospel that I can’t keep to myself … John 8:1-11 Then neither do I condemn you, Jesus declared. Go now and leave your…

Reasons to Support the ACNA

Your church was represented well at the 226th Convention of the Diocese of South Carolina. The big news of Convention was the vote on affiliation with the Anglican Church of North America (ACNA).   This affiliation was studied by our diocese for several years (we also held two information sessions here at St. Michaels).  The vote…

Other News from the Convention

We began on Friday afternoon with workshops;  this year the Rev. David Booman and I were asked by Bishop Lawrence to offer a workshop on our relationship with Mother Emanuel Church and our joint ministries since the tragedy there.  After the workshops, we participated in our Convention Eucharist, with the sermon by the Rt. Rev. Al Gadsden of the Reformed Episcopal Church.…
