Fr. Glenn: The Struggle

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

It doesn’t take a long look at the news to find examples of failures—failures of marriage, failures of remaining within legality in general, failures of sobriety, and just out and out failures of being good persons. Some would tell me: “Well, if people ‘walked the line’ in everything all of the time, you priests and ministers would be out of a large part of your jobs.” Trust me; we would not mind a bit!

But, alas … such isn’t the case, and doesn’t look like it ever will be. Ever those darned old bad habits, temptations, irascibilities, selfishnesses, etc., are always goading us to Read More

According to one news source (NBCNews.com), updated at 8:41 p.m. MST, Oct. 19, 2023, since the surprise attack on Israel by Hamas on Thursday, Oct. 7, “More than 3,700 people have been killed and more than 13,000 have been injured in Gaza. In Israel, 1,400 people have been killed and 3,500 have been wounded.”

That’s more than 20,000 people, killed or wounded, in less than two weeks, with far too Read More

Fr. Glenn: Never Say Never

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

One of the best-known verses in the Biblical book of Ecclesiastes is: “What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; and there is nothing new under the sun.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9). Or, for a more flippant contemporary phrase, “Wash. Rinse. Repeat.”

As we’ve watched the tragic events occurring in Israel unfold over the last week or so, we who are a bit older can’t help thinking: “Huh; I’ve seen THIS movie before.” Scale can be different, methods somewhat varied, but it seems an unending cycle of: War. Tense ceasefire. Rearm. Wash, rinse, repeat. Except Read More

Los Alamos Houses Of Worship To Provide Support To Shelter For Asylum Seekers – A Head’s Up

On Behalf of Cooperating Houses of Worship

Following a successful effort last year, a number of local houses of worship will be working together again this year to support a shelter for asylum seekers in Deming. That facility, managed by Colores United, receives up to 300 people per week, all of whom have been released from federal detention centers. After a respite of days to weeks, the asylum seekers, many of whom have been through traumatic experiences, move on to longer term housing around the US, where they await asylum hearings.

To support the humanitarian effort of Colores Read More

Fr. Glenn: Goal!

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

(Sigh). Trouble again in Israel—always quite worrisome. Back and forth will weapons be lobbed to the inevitable destruction and death of many. Often smaller conflicts blaze up into much larger conflagrations; let us pray that that doesn’t occur. For instance, who would have thought at that time that the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand by a Serbian nationalist would have been the spark to set all Europe ablaze as World War I?

Now, this Monday (October 9) is Columbus Day—celebrated by many as the discovery and beginning of the settlement of the New Word, and disdained by Read More

By Reverend Lynn Finnegan
The Episcopal Church of the Holy Faith

In one of the most famous “about-faces” of all times, the apostle Paul, who ruthlessly persecuted and murdered Christians, received a severe wakeup call from God. Convinced of the error of his ways, he then set as his life’s mission the proclamation – in word AND actions – of the love of God in the death and resurrection of Christ. He was largely responsible for the tremendous growth Read More

Fr. Glenn: My Frailties Remember Not

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

Do you ever lay in bed—not ready to rise, but just kind of snoozing til the rude ol’ alarm (curséd may it be) goes off. In-between awake and asleep, the thoughts just wandering—ideas, past events, deeds done well … and those not so well. Some people claim that they have no regrets; well, lucky you. I know that I have plenty—duties neglected, people treated badly, (fill in your own blank here). Yes, one muses on joys and successes, but also surfacing are memories of times that I did not behave quite as well as I should have and, worse, as I knew I should have. It’d be difficult to believe Read More

Fr. Glenn: Looking For Work

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

I was watching a police show the other day in which robbers were targeting persons over 60 years old. The police commander’s urgent order was: “We have to find these punks before they prey on more of the elderly!”

Dang—so I’ve hit the “elderly” category?! Sure doesn’t feel like it … other than creaky joints, and worsening eyesight and hearing, and memory, and …). Next thing you know I’ll be getting “senior discounts”! Oh, wait! … I already get those.

Yes, time inexorably sneaks up on us. No matter how many times our elders warned us of how time flies, we don’t believe it ‘til we “get Read More

Izraelevitz: Circles Within Circles

Los Alamos

In the Jewish tradition, Rosh Hashanah is not only the yearly observance of the beginning of our world, but also when God performs a conditional assessment of our behavior during the most recent year. However, the Heavenly verdict is not final until ten days hence, on Yom Kippur, and for year 5784, the final opportunity of Yom Kippur begins tonight. This holiest day of the Jewish calendar, a day of prayer and fasting, is also the date of final introspection, atonement and forgiveness, when, according to one tradition, God forgave the Israelites for the sin of the Read More
