Baptism Made Real

Matthew 3:13-17

Baptism of the Lord - Year A

The Rev. Randy Calvo (PCUSA)

Can you remember your baptism? Are you able to put together the pieces of your baptism? If baptized as an infant, a memory probably comes, if at all, in the form of a preserved paper certificate and/or the testimony of a parent. If baptized as an adolescent, perhaps you did so at the conclusion of a confirmation class in the church. Maybe for you baptism's memory is fresh and new, happening only recently.

The Main Thing

Matthew 2:1-12

Epiphany of the Lord - Year A

January 06, 2008

The Rev. Randy Calvo (PCUSA)

Horror novelist Stephen King in 1991 wrote a book entitled Needful Things. The story is set in a small fictional New England town, Castle Rock, Maine. In the town a new gift shop is opened by a seemingly kind older gentleman named Leland Gaunt. The allure of the shop is that for each of the townspeople the shop's inventory includes an item thought to be the thing most wanted in life. However, none of the people can afford to buy the item. The shop owner offers each of them a trade. A favor done for him will secure the most wanted item. Each is to play what appears to be a simple prank on another of the townspeople. Then the residents of Castle Rock begin to turn on one another until at last the whole town is in chaos. Leland Gaunt turns out to be none other than the devil himself. Traveling throughout the countries of the world, he has been selling junk to people who thought they were purchasing the item they most wanted. What the shoppers failed to notice were the words printed above the shop's entrance...Caveat Emptor... "Let the buyer beware."
