Fr. Glenn: Our Common Fraternity

Remember this Memorial Day to honor the memory of those military and first responders who have given their lives in our service. And may God bless those families who have given so much.

One of the hallmarks of the military is that of “fraternity”—the “band of brothers” (including women serving, of course!). Those who have served in the military know exactly what it is—the comradery of shared experiences and, for those who have served in combat, shared fears, trials and interdependence on one another.

Pastor Raul: A Debt To Love

Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law. (NIV Romans 13:8).

I have heard, many times and from many people, that everyone deserves to be loved. I’m quite sure I’ve even said it myself. So, with great care, I want to ask a question that I think some are afraid to ask: “Why does anyone deserve to be loved?”

I think this question is important today, because far too many people talk a great deal about “love” but have not actually

On May 29th we’ll have our annual celebration of Memorial Day … the remembrance of those who have died in the service of our nation and her people in the armed forces, and, by extension, the fire, police, Coast Guard, and all others who put their lives on the line to serve and to protect, and yet lived not to see another dawn.

It is a day to remember those who sought to protect and defend our nation and our liberty … to aid and to defend even those they had never met.

Pastor Granillo: By Faith Alone?

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV)
 
“Salvation by faith alone, and not by works” has been a repetitive drum beat in the protestant church. The scriptures are clear that no person can earn salvation. If they could, it would be something God owed them instead of a true gift of grace. If it could be earned, then Jesus’ death was in vain.
