Of Fishes and Loaves - Realities of Living in Abundance

(Click here for a PDF version)

A booklet of sermons and scripture readings on Stewardship. The Gospel theme through Summer 2003 included:

  • Being afraid to act on faith
  • Miracles - yes, fishes and loaves was among them!
  • The source of evil
  • Jesus, the bread of life.

Each reading was rich in opportunity to consider faith in action.

 

A Vision for All Saints: Spirituality, Stewardship, Sharing

In 1995 the Rector presented a Vision for All Saints in three sermons in the seasons of Epiphany and Lent. This vision was adopted by the Vestry's Long-range Planning Committee and embodied in the Vestry's Five Year Plan which guides the parish to the present day. The vision is expressed as the parish's commitment to be a center of spirituality, stewardship and sharing.

SPIRITUALITY - sermon of The Rev. Dr. David A. Killian, Rector, Second Sunday after the Epiphany, January 15, 1995.

STEWARDSHIP - sermon of The Rev. Dr. David A. Killian, Rector, Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany, February 12, 1995.
