Improvise (Jazz) in Times of Disruption

Life can be very unpredictable.  It can change very quickly. When the rhythm changes, we improvise.  Like the text, we can be hard pressed, perplexed, or feel like we’re struck down.  In these moments of disruption, we are all improvising. Jazz is the art of disciplined improvisation:  adapting to change and creating on demand.

Homilia – 1.29.2020 John 1:29-34

Part of the Gospel story is for you and I to respond to this news. Much like J.Bap, we are being called to witness the power of Christ to break all forms of sin and shame in our lives. And the more we hide or run from our it, the more it perpetuates. John is…

Homilia – 1.22.2020 John 1:19-28

This gospel, and especially the first chapter of John (and especially the first 8 verses), are saying this:  Jesus Christ of Nazareth is indeed God in the flesh. God has become human so that humans might be made in the image of God.  John is not just writing, but proclaiming that the long awaited ruler…

When Jesus speaks, people get healed and restored.   Music produced by: Terrell Hundley (@iamtheonehund)
