Saint Andrew’s Weekly News

2016-10-26T17:02:03+00:00 November 19th, 2015|Announcements, News|

  FROM THE RECTOR The kingdoms of this world, and the Kingdom of God Reflecting on a week of strife and confusion Finishing our series on the Kingdom of God in a week with such turmoil in the world drove home for me the radical divide between the two Kingdoms: that of the world, and that of God.

In the Midst of Parables: Saint Andrew’s weekly news

2016-10-26T17:02:03+00:00 November 6th, 2015|Announcements, News|

  FROM THE RECTOR In the Midst of Parables Making more meaningful the reign of the Kingdom of God We have passed the half-way point in our exploration of the Kingdom parables of Jesus. Has the meaning of the reign of God grown through our consideration of these stories? There are three types of parables found in the Gospels: Similitudes. Stories that touches on a common experience in real life that hearers would almost automatically agree is true—they are an affirmation of the way life is. Parables. Fictional but vivid stories that attempt to persuade listeners of a single, striking [...]
