Sunday Sermon: Glimpses of Heaven

St. John's Anglican, Orinda

The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, like yeast, like a hidden treasure, like a pearl of great value, like a net thrown into the sea… Jesus taught in parables to teach past people’s expectations and use the unexpected to reach past our defenses.  This Sunday we will look at this rapid fire volley of parables in Matthew to come to a deeper understanding of the kingdom of heaven.

On The Way To Santiago de Compestela, Spain

Victorious Christ in Ovieo, Spain, Dorothy and Jerry Gager, St. John's Anglican Church, Orinda, CA

By Dorothy Gager 
On “the Way”, we toured two World Heritage churches (8 A.D. and 9 A.D) at Oviedo, Spain after which it was time for lunch. We had a picnic lunch with us, so we responded to the invitation of a windy narrow road to drive to the top of the hill. A huge statue of a victorious and compassionate Christ with outstretched arms welcomed us. I would estimate the size of 100 to 150 feet. We observed pilgrims finding their way to the foot of this Jesus as we enjoyed lunch. Unaware of other people walking their dogs, taking pictures of the view, and lunching, the pilgrims cast their walking sticks and back packs aside, and reverently dropped to their knees at the foot of the Christ.

Finding St. John's Anglican

Anglican Church members story

By Aaron and Corie Anderson
We want to draw on an over-used line from Forrest Gump to tell the story of finding St. John's Anglican Church. Finding a new church is "… like a box of chocolates -- you never know what you're going to get." Well, in finding St. John's Anglican Church, we have opened the box of chocolates, and discovered an amazing group of people, a place where Christ is truly present, and we are delighted to be here!  Read more
