Back in the days of the Cold War, American intelligence agents would always pay close attention to the photographs taken of the Soviet leaders in the grandstand at the parades commemorating the October revolution.

Sermon August 7, 2016 (Proper 14C)

Pentecost 12/Proper 14          7 August 2016
St Stephen Lutheran Church, Pittsburgh PA
The Rev. Maurice C. Frontz III, STS

I was in the local Wal-Mart a few months ago,
for some reason passing the jewelry desk.
I saw the collection of cross pendants there and stopped to look at it.
I’m not really interested in jewelry, but I am interested in crosses.
In some of the little boxes the crosses came in were short verses.
I leaned down to read one of the prayers, which said,
‘God grant me the courage to believe in my dreams.’
