Whats Your Deep Story, Bro? | #849

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary 30 – Arlie Hochschild, Strangers in Their Own Land talks about the Deep Story. Is your Deep Story one individualism and self-preservation? Being a Christian means we are part of Creation: inherently connected, known, and valuable.

It’s Not About The Red Team vs The Blue Team | #845

Fr. Joel Homilies

Ordinary 26 – Politics is not a sporting event between a red team and a blue team. And Jesus does not want to talk about what those other people are doing wrong. Jesus wants to focus on you. A sense of mission helps us see things from God’s perspective.

How to Survive a Haunted House and America’s Next 4 Years (#652, 33rd Sunday)

Fr. Joel Homilies
