Christ Church Sermons by The Rev. Cara Spaccarelli

A Fast Mass

The Sunday after Christmas is a “light” Sunday – one to let the worship wash over you and do its thing to shape your heart. A poem by Irish poet Paul Durcan included about the beauty and wonder of a “fast mass.”

When it all comes together

In the introduction to John the Baptist, we see the past, present, and future of God’s work come together.  It is a moment that encourages us to have faith today that God who has begun a good work in us will see it to completion, even when it doesn’t look that way.   

When grief builds a wall

The first chapter of Samuel gives an intimate view of a married couple burdened with the pain of infertility.  Faithfully they walk with the unsettled ache of grief and, in doing so, help us reflect on what to do in times when we or someone we love is deeply grieving.

The Most Important Thing

In this Bible study style sermon, Jesus, a skilled debater whose techniques would fit right in with political debates today,  reminds us of what the most important thing is even in contentious times.
