Gists for Jesus
Summary of Fr. Carl's sermon, May 5, 2019
" Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe." (John 20:29) Jesus spoke of those who in every age since the Cross have opened their hearts to Christ in the person of the Holy Spirit. God as our creator sustains us and all of creation. But, as far as we know, only human beings are given the ability to make the choice of whether to trust, to permit God to be heard, and to follow our Lord's way of love and hope. Only human beings can grow in this choice of conversation with eternity, and in each moment become instruments of God's blessing. Let us choose love and light, rather than fear and darkness."
Summary of Fr. Carl's sermon, May 12, 2019
"Cast your net to the right side of the boat, and you will find some fish." (John 21:6) When we not only listen to Jesus, but do what he invites us to do, we will find abundance in our lives. As their Risen Lord, Jesus helped the disciples realize that Jesus was still with them, and that the Cross, as terrible as it was, proved God's abiding love for humanity even through the consequences of our inevitably horrible choices. My mother used to say with a smile, "You got up on the wrong side of the bed today!" Let us arise to the right side of the gift of life, and follow the One who truly loves us.
Summary of Fr. Carl's sermon, May 19, 2019
Does faith require that we set aside our rational mind to believe only what science can prove for meaning in life? Not at all. Such thinking corrupts faith and can lead to great evils in our relationships. Faith is simply choosing from the evidence of what works for a better world. Love works better than fear and neglect. Every day we see the goodness of self-giving for the sake of others: Heroism, charity, hospitality, even a smile, can make our day brighter and better, compared to cowardly, self-serving, and predatory behavior. Science simply gives us the ability to love enen better - or to fear and hate with disastrous consequences. Which way would you choose? Faith is about love, and was from the beginning.

The Rev. James Shannon McGowan
Minister and Founder of Seven Churches in California from 1873 until his Death in 1915. Saint Mark's in King City is one of them.
"These seven churches built and consecrated during forty years are witnesses of the cross and gospel of Christ, which is the power of God unto salvation. And if they did cost toil and privation and danger and weakness of the flesh, yet it is worth it all to know that some souls, longing for the light, have seen it and that thirsty souls have drunk of the priceless water of life.
Others, I trust, will carry on the work of faith and the labor of love for His dear sake, who loved us and washed us in his own blood.
To Him be glory and dominion and power for ever and ever. Amen".
