    “Turning Again”

    Lectionary Year B – Proper 21 (26)

    “Turning Again” James 5:13-20 The authorship of the Epistle of James has been questioned, debated, considered and researched for centuries.

    “Just Give Me That Old Time Religion”

    Lectionary Year B - Proper 17 (22) – Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost

    Much to my sentimental scholastic chagrin, school seems to begin earlier and earlier in August with each passing year. In the case of school systems that are “year ’round” school is ongoing throughout much of the summer – and not just for those of us who may have been required at some point or another […]
