I am not a Roman Catholic, (Actually Rev. Bill Clementson informed us that the Bishop of London, and all at the Royal Wedding, are Church of England or Episcopal as they say in the States but is like an Evangelical form of Roman Catholic) but this sermon delivered by Rt. Rev. Richard Chartres the Bishop of London at the British Royal wedding is worth a look.

There are more Bibles in print today than ever before. The Bible continues to be the best selling and the most translated book in the world. Yet a Bible that eats dust in a shelf is worthless. Believers who suffer from spiritual malnutrition are people who don’t read their Bibles. The Bible carries God’s inspired word. Therefore it should be every believers first priority to feed on God’s word. Jesus called this “abiding”. How do I abide in God’s word?
I am convinced that the three greatest things for the healing of a relationship are Love, Acceptance, and Forgiveness. This story has got to be one of the saddest in all of scripture. Here are a father and a son, both of whom loved each other, but they died as enemies. It didn’t have to be that way. There are undoubtedly some damaged relationships here today. Can we learn some lessons from the story of David and Absalom?
In today’s sermon I want to consider yet another popular passage in the Bible. It is the story of Jesus being anointed by a sinful woman. “She has done a beautiful thing to me…” is the key verse of the passage. What can we learn about doing beautiful things for God today?
If someone doesn’t have a Facebook account these days, it’s kind of a big deal. I can’t remember what I did before Facebook. It’s almost a necessity these days. A lot of people would disagree with that statement but it’s all about how you see it. I keep in contact with friends all around the world.
