has been forced to demand a formal letter of resignation from his tabby cat Allie from her alleged position as "Alarm Clock" due to her refusal to give up its duties. He hopes he will not have to resort to legal remedies to prevent her from continuing to wake him up early. (Readers need not fear -- her position as "Ferocious Lioness" is secure, with full salary and benefits.)

Here is tonight's sermon on the text from Joshua, relying on an allegorical sense of the text:

assumes that he is very much in the minority of those preaching on the RCL today who chose the Exodus reading rather than the gospel about "rendering unto Caesar" as his text today -- and for TWO sermons, one for adults and one for children.

God assuring Moses that God knows him by name. And sharing with Moses the sacred name of God. Having an intimate conversation with God, but at the same time, not having the capacity to see the fullness of God's glory (such a wonderful interplay of immanence and transcendence). [Yes, I thought that was thunder.]

Jason is sadly correct. Here's more information: http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/06/14/catholic-school-decides-best-way-to-handle-a-14-year-teachers-domestic-violence-situation-fire-her/

Keep your kids as far away from this school as possible if you want them to learn ethical or moral values such as compassion, kindness, helping the needy, etc.

Blessed Feast of All Saints!

forgot that the parish was celebrating All Saints tonight, and prepared his sermon for Proper 26 of the RCL -- specifically, the first reading, Joshua 3:7-17. We ended up using the prayers, gospel, and hymns for All Saints, with the first two readings from Proper 26. The sermon was rather allegorical -- Tim hopes to type it up and post it.

Good news. We now offer the Ordinal, containing the ordination rites of the Independent Catholic Christian Church, in a smaller size, with rubrics in black. Here is the congregational edition (hardback) -- there is also a personal edition (paperback). The ritual edition, 8.5X11, with rubrics in red, is still available as well. http://www.lulu.com/product/hardcover/ordinal-congregational/18168577?productTrackingContext=author_spotlight_939760_
