A couple of weeks ago I encouraged us to approach this new year with the attitude, “Speak, Lord, for your servant hears.” That all sounds great, you might think, but how do I listen? How do I hear from the Lord? For that, there is a central source and a necessary attitude or habit.

On New Year's Resolutions: Speak, Lord, for Your Servant Hears
If He calls you, you shall say, "Speak, Lord, for your servant hears."
Bishop Alex Cameron Friday, January 06, 2023 - 7:54am

And the Lord called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli and said, “Here I am, for you called me.” Then Eli perceived that the Lord was calling the boy. Therefore Eli said to Samuel, “Go, lie down, and if he calls you, you shall say, ‘Speak, Lord, for your servant hears.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

While Christmas is—and ought to be—a joy-filled time of year, it can also be a source of anxiety, grief, and even fear for many among us. For those of you burdened with fear, I want to assure you that Jesus Christ is the antidote to that fear—that the gift God gives us on Christmas is a reminder that we are not alone. He has come to dwell among us. 

Watch the Anglican Bishop of Pittsburgh's Christmas address, below.


A Devotion for the Third Week in Advent

An Advent 3 Devotional

Again the Lord spoke to Ahaz: “Ask a sign of the Lord your God; let it be deep as Sheol or high as heaven.” But Ahaz said, “I will not ask, and I will not put the Lord to the test.” And he said, “Hear then, O house of David! Is it too little for you to weary men, that you weary my God also? Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. He shall eat curds and honey when he knows how to refuse the evil and choose the good.

A Devotion for the Second Week in Advent

An Advent 2 Devotional

The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad;
    the desert shall rejoice and blossom like the crocus;
it shall blossom abundantly
    and rejoice with joy and singing.
The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it,
    the majesty of Carmel and Sharon.
They shall see the glory of the Lord,
    the majesty of our God.
Strengthen the weak hands,
    and make firm the feeble knees.
