Choose Life! L’Chaim – Sermon for the 6th Sunday after Epiphany – February 16, 2014
Fr. Funston's sermon for Sunday, February 16, 2014, the Sixth Sunday after Epiphany, is now online: In Deuteronomy, we are standing on a high hill looking over the border into Canaan-land and Moses is reminding the Hebrews of their past. In a series of three discourses, Moses reminds them of their time of slavery in Egypt, of their liberation at the Passover, of their trek through the desert, and of God’s giving of the Law at Sinai. He has recounted the Ten Commandments and the rest of 613 mitzvot required in the Torah. And he is now, in the third discourse, ...

Fr. Funston's sermon for Sunday, February 9, Epiphany V, "City on the Hill, Obscured," is now available on his blog: We were reminded last Sunday that this mission was inherited by Jesus when old Simeon took the infant Christ in his arms and proclaimed that he was to be “a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.” (Lk 2:32) And now this week, as an adult rabbi, Jesus passes on that mission to his church, the new Israel (as St. Paul would later call it). Jesus instructs his disciples, those present at the Sermon on ...

Fr. Funston's sermon for the Feast of the Presentation, February 2, "I Saw the Light!" is now available on his blog: Old Simeon had been hanging around the Temple for many years, a devout and orthodox Jew, hoping to see the coming of the Messiah; indeed, he believed he had been promised by God that he would not die before seeing the Messiah. One day, this young couple of poor, country folk came in to perform the sacrifices of purification and redemption, the restoration of Mary to ritual purity following childbirth and the pydion haben or redemption of their first-born male ...
The Neighbors Can See In! — Sermon for the Annual Parish Meeting — January 26, 2014
Fr. Funston's sermon for the Annual Parish Meeting on January 26, 2014, Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, "The Neighbors Can See In!" is now available online: A few decades ago when I was studying law I was introduced to the term “officious intermeddler.” In law, an officious intermeddler is someone who, on their own and without any authority either by invitation or pre-existing legal duty, interjects himself into the affairs of another, and then seeks some sort of recompense for doing so. That pretty much describes young Saul of Tarsus and at least his initial quest to rid Judaism ...
