Jesus on Divorce

There are times in the bible when it seems to be saying something clearly… and yet with some cultural context, we see that the situation is a great deal murkier and the actual message is slightly different.

For instance, the topic of this Sunday’s sermon (you can find the full text of the readings here), is Jesus’ teaching on Divorce. It seems on the surface like Jesus is saying, ‘divorce is inherently a bad idea, and you’re wrong to do it’, when in fact culturally speaking, Jesus’ message seemed to be, ‘you treat women like kleenex, please stop, they’re not meant to be disposable.’

The sermon was preached on October 7, 2018 by the Rev. Sare Liz Anuszkiewicz at Trinity Episcopal Church in Warsaw, NY.

Shake the Dust Off

Want to let go but just can’t manage it? Trying to forgive, or get to the place where you even want to forgive? Jesus has something to say about that.

The Purpose of Church

The following is a funeral sermon preached by the Rev. Sare Liz Anuszkiewicz on June 24, 2018. It was the Memorial of the Life of Nyla Wilkinson – but even if you didn’t know her, it’s a great talk about the purpose of church (which Nyla seemed to intuitively understand).

There’s one more Sunday in Easter, before we’re off to Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, and then the Gone Fishing Season of the Church, which lasts until about Thanksgiving, or if you’re feeling liturgical, Advent.

During the Gone Fishing Season of the Church, look for the formation of the Trinity Church Kazoo Choir! All ages welcome, so long as you possess a sense of humor.
