Stir-up Sunday

With all the many restrictions caused by the reaction to COVID-19, I worry that visitors to this site might not have access to a service for Sunday next before Advent, also known at Stir Up Sunday. The link to my traditional homily for Sunday next before Advent is linked from the Podcast Homilies page. You can also read or watch the Episode Nine in the AIC Seasonal Video series on Trinity Season.

For an online service for the occasion, you can watch it live or via video replay at, which broadcast from St. Luke Anglican in Sedona, AZ.

In other news, I’ve decided to move all our videos to another vendor. Our current site is introducing new rules that allow them to monetize all content on their site. In order not to inconveniene viewers, I will leave the existing site in place until an arrangement is reached with another vendor. In 2021, I intend to produce a Version 3 of all the New Testament: Gospels series. The new version will have an updated design and cross-references to material in the new illustrated Gospels series.

It is possible, but only slightly, that The Gospel of Luke: Annotated & Illustrated could be available before Christmas. Everything has to fall into place in exactly the right way for that to happen. Otherwise, publication is scheduled for Epiphany Season.

Finally, I continue to urge site visitors to follow the advice to “turn it off and tune it out.” There are now so many sources available online, including print and electronic newspapers, news channels, opinion channels, and printed material. Christians do not need to let revisionists into their thoughts.

Glory be to God for all things! Amen!
