  • Pastor's Blog Created on Sunday, 21 August 2016

    We have served God together for the last 20 months. Where has the time gone? Can we count the blessings we have shared over this time? I was somewhat helped by the fact and belief I have that in Christ all is always new. But as I write this I realize that I am already ...

    The Season after Pentecost Sunday that lasts from about the 1st of June until the end of November is also known as Ordinary Time. I mention this because having a thought about our relationship with God in so-called ordinary time - nothing special going on - means that ...

    Since I wear my collar most of the time, I find that people – outside the church – talk to me and they usually end our conversation by saying, “Pray for me.” I always respond, “I will, if you will pray for me.” That comes out of a sense that all of us need all the pray...

    This time of transition that we have shared is almost done. Next month we will learn who has been called by God and our Vestry, with the recommendation of our Search Committee to be the new Rector. As Chuck Dinsmore said last Sunday, the committee has given many hours ...

    This letter came from Bishop Peter in support of those of us who are clergy. I feel that it is full of thoughts for all of us. So I am reposting it for you. A Message to the Clergy Saturday, 9 July 2016 Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ, It is almost two years since ...

    There are many different kinds of questions. Simple questions – “What time is it? How do I get to All Saints?” There are hypothetical questions – “What if…..?” There are difficult questions, “Why is the sky blue? Why is there air? Is what you preach about God really tr...

    I had a conversation with an audio engineer recently. He was busy setting up all sorts of digital equipment, stringing cable, setting up stands for microphones. At one point in our conversation he said, “As a Christian……….” As I wear my collar in public – and for that ...

    It occurs to me that even though we take the time on Sundays to share in worship and celebrate the love God has for us, too many of us and I include myself in that group, may or may not keep the day as Sabbath. Friends to see, meals to cook and eat, and adventures at t...

    Thought from Fr. Hugh For those of you who could not be with us for our candlelight vigil honoring and remembering those who died in Orlando; and praying for them and those wounded, and for their families and loved ones who grieve – as we do, I wanted to share this bea...

    Keeping the Sabbath. Why do we do that? What difference will it make to us and to others around us. The Old Testament Scholar Walter Brueggemann has a new book I have begun reading called, Sabbath as Resistance. When we gather on Sundays, we welcome all to worship with...

    We continue to move forward into Exciting Times for our life and ministry here. We are truly blessed with what God has provided for us. For all this I give thanks. This Sunday, in addition to our shared morning worship time, we will experience an evening with Kate Eato...

    Thought from Fr. Hugh Tomorrow is not just a day off, a day for beach or barbeques. It is a day to be spent quietly remembering friends, parents, siblings, grandparents and all others who have died in the service of our county. Of all the civic holidays on our U.S. cal...

    On Sunday mornings when every single pew isn’t filled we are reminded by Archbishop Tutu that in those seats are angels, saints of our church. I believe that All Saints is a holy place. What some call a “thin” place where we are and can be even closer to our loving God...

    Yes, that is who we are, who we tell others we are, and what we believe us to be. Our response to the Baptismal Covenant (which we will all promise during our new Bishop’s visit in June ) “Will you seek and serve Christ is all persons, loving your neighbor as your self...

    (Father Hugh is at the Credo Conference this week and then will be on vacation for the following two weeks. This is one of his thoughts from May 2015.) Gifts large and small - in our Lord’s eyes are all valuable. What’s your “ding?” Every gift is important. Archbishop ...

    As you and I journey with God and towards God, an openness of mind and in heart is part of our spiritual growth. All Saints is good at providing opportunities for continued thinking and learning. We are a bit unusual in the Episcopal Church that we have two ongoing EFM...

    A central part of the Capital Campaign steering committee this past Sunday, led by our Co-chair Tim Greene, was that we are to continue this effort to fulfill the promise made – that we visit and listen to every “household” in the parish. What is a “household”? One per...

    Thoughts from Fr. Hugh On Saturday, April 9th we were blessed to be part of Donna Dambrot ‘s bat mitzvah at Temple Israel in Miami. A number of us from All Saints attended. We were welcomed generously by the people of the Temple and the ceremony was moving and beautifu...

    This week, as I thought about my sermon for today and about the book review for today – Anne Lamott’s Help Thanks Wow, it occurred to me that I have been missing the old thought, KISS, “Keep it simple, s…….” I stopped for a moment in my office and looked out the window...

    Hospitality and our Guests To misquote a Psalm: “Why do the Righteous so furiously rage against us?” Us, the lost and wandering sheep whose thread of faith, tattered and frayed, still leads us to the sheepfold gate, just once or twice a year. Of course we could show up...
