Decades of spiritual apathy have given over Western Civilization to the evils of abortion, lured in by the false promises offered by politicians and celebrities – and the modern Church bears much of the blame. The Rev. Galloway exhorts Christians to defend the dignity of life regardless of the fate of Roe v. Wade.

The epilogue to John’s Gospel – chapter 21 – reveals much about Jesus, the Apostles, and the early Church. In particular, we learn much about the unparalleled strength and character of the Apostle Peter. Listen as the Rev. Galloway explains what we can learn from John’s epilogue, and how the boldness of the Apostle Peter helped establish the infant Church.

After Christ’s death, the disciples took refuge in the Upper Room. Without warning, the risen Christ appeared to them. Listen as the Rev. Galloway discusses Christ’s miraculous appearance and explains what it means for our lives. “Shalom,” Christ said, “Peace be with you.”

We are quick to justify ourselves by our own works and self-righteousness. As Christians, we easily fall into the trap of looking not to the cross but to our own virtue-signaling for assurance of salvation. As the Rev. Galloway explores Christ’s final hour on the cross this Good Friday, we are asked the question: Is the cross not enough for us?

The LORD says through the prophet Isaiah, “I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert… for I give water in the wilderness, rivers in the desert, to give drink to my chosen people, the people whom I formed for myself that they might declare my praise” (Isaiah 43:19, 21). We all have wilderness experiences in our lives, but God will never leave us or forsake us, and it is the mark of the Christian to praise God even when everything life appears to be going wrong.

While it may seem counterintuitive, there is great joy to be found in the disciplines of Lent. Listen as the Bishop-retired explains the meaning of Lenten joy.
20 March 2022
We are assaulted every day by anxieties about our own lives and everything going on in the world. In Psalm 46, the LORD tells the Psalmist, “Be still, and know that I am God.” In these words we can find great comfort, but we must first be willing to be still. We can take confidence knowing that God is in control as the great I AM.
13 March 2022
The Church calls us to “prayer, fasting, and almsgiving” in observance of a Holy Lent. Listen as the Bishop-retired explains what each of these three disciplines means, and what each looks like in the Christian life.
6 March 2022
We are assaulted by many temptations in our culture of ease and wealth to not really care about issues elsewhere in the world – we aren’t moved to the point where we might actually do something about it. We justify turning a blind eye to evil. What is the solution to this problem? We should observe the disciplines to which we are called in a holy Lent.
