  • "When Fear Overshadows Hope," a Sermon by Amy Starr Redwine from 1 Samuel 17
    by A Sermon for Every Sunday on Monday, June 14, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    "Some of the best stories in the Bible are the stories of David, the shepherd boy, the musician, the poet, the warrior, Israel's greatest king...Of all the many and colorful characters in the Bible, David is the one who feels the most like us, utterly, wonderfully, human," begins Rev. Amy Starr Redwine, pastor of Richmond's First Presbyterian Church. In today's sermon from 1 Samuel 17:(1a, 4-11, 19-23), 32-49, a childhood story about David reminds us that, when gripped by fear, we only need to remember one thing. "We are the beloved children of the living God, whose claim on us and whose love for us is stronger and deeper than any fear that threatens to overwhelm us."

  • St. Michael's Episcopal Church, Sunday, May 9, 2021 —The Sixth Sunday of Easter
    by holymichaelraleigh on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    In her final sermon as St. Michael's curate, the Rev. Anna S. Page explores the Gospel verse in John 15: "No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." A favorite verse for those serving in the military, what does it mean for us, at St. Michael's? As Anna illuminates, "love" is the final word. There are many ways to "lose ones life," but as we do, we draw closer to Christ.

Anna Page is an ordained priest of the Episcopal Church. As a transitional Deacon she served as the Curate at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church in Raleigh, NC.  She is also a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army Reserves.
