A Law Awoken Sin

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

St. Paul says in Romans, "But sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment produced in me all kinds of covetousness. For apart from the law, sin lies dead." (Romans 7:8).  Is St. Paul saying that God, through the proclamation of His Law, causes us to sin? Does the Law cause us to...

Best Part of Waking up

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

Holy Little Deaths

Posted by Pastor Christopher Hull on

December 26th was the feast of St. Stephen, and yesterday was the feast of St. John. Both of these feast days seem fair to us. Stephen died proclaiming the Gospel. Stephen was a grown man that wasn't killed against his will, but rather kept preaching in the face of death. St. John, on the other...
