The Rev. Dr. Mark Anschutz is the retired rector of St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in Dallas, TX.

Mark Anschutz is a third-generation Episcopal priest (his daughter, Maryetta, is a fourth-generation priest!) who has spent 33 years as rector of congregations in Worcetster, MA; Alexandria, VA; New York City and Dallas.

He is deeply involved in several initiatives to aid the Episcopal Church in raising up young and gifted persons for ordained ministry and had a 25-year involvement with Mengo Hospital in Kampala, Uganda, supplying medical supplies and providing capital improvements.

He is most recently retired as the rector of St. Michael and All Angels Church in Dallas. Personally, he strongly resists the word "retirement." He preaches regularly throughout the northeast; leads marriage retreats; acts as a stewardship consultant and, most important to him, wants a deeper involvement in making the Millennium Development Goals a triumph for this generation.

It was an ugly and brutal scene, marked by anguished suffering, a scene that depicted humankind's worst side:

* There were lashes with a whip tipped with lead.
* A crown of thorns pushed down on his brow.
* A massive cross dragged through the crowd-a crowd which jeered and taunted every agonizing step along the way.
* There were the tortuous nails.
* And, finally, the instrument of punishment, the cross, lifted into place for the agonizing trial death would require.

Sermon for the First Sunday in Lent

Luke 4:1-13

First Sunday in Lent - Year C

February 29, 2004

The Rev. Dr. Mark Anschutz (TEC)

Filled with the Holy Spirit, Jesus returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the desert for forty days, to be tempted by the devil.

Let us begin today by setting the scene: Following our Lord's baptism where he has a powerful experience of the presence of the Spirit, that same Spirit guides Him to the desert to be tempted. I have been fortunate enough to have visited the area most scholars consider to be the place where our Lord had gone. It is barren, dry, a long way from any population centers, capable of being extremely hot during the day and, conversely, very cold at night. There were certainly no amenities, and, in summary, one might offhandedly say of it, "It is the last place on earth one would want to go for 40 days."
