Who Will Take The Son?

Who Will Take the Son?
Rt. Rev. Edward L. Tatro, Jr., D.Div.

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Let us read in 1 John 3:16 (CSB): This is how we have come to know love: He laid down his life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

My Brothers and Sisters I would like to tell you a little story; a story about a man and his father. Some of you may have read this already since it is going around on the internet, but it is worth hearing again.

1 Corinthians 14:18

This past week’s Ham’s for the Lamb yielded another request on expounding on scripture.  This time it is 1 Corinthians 14:18 (KJV) “I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all.” Speaking in tongues is a hot button topic in the Christian faith.  Some ascribe to that it was only the Church Father’s that had the gifts; while others say it is still present today.  I know not which is right.  I only know what Scripture says as well as the history of St. Paul. 

St. Paul was an educated man and was a man of many languages (we know not the number of languages he actively spoke though).

St. Paul had a Scribe?


Every Sunday evening I am a part of  a Christian Net (round table) on our local repeater; it is called Ham’s for the Lamb (if you’re in the Montgomery Alabama area it happens at 19:00 Central Time on 146.84 with a tone of 123 Hz).

Last week I was asked about Romans 16:22.  Lets get into the scripture.  Let us read Romans 16:21 and 22 so we have some context.

My Time At Portia-Game Review

I want to tell you about a game I just started playing recently…what you didn’t know that your bishop enjoys video games…well you learn something new every day! 😉

It is called My Time at Portia by Team17, and I play it on the Nintendo Switch. My Switch Friend Code.  Just a reminder to folks who are here for the first time, all links open in a new window/tab depending on what browser you are using.

This game is similar in nature to Stardew Valley which is why I wanted to try it.  I think it is much better than Stardew Valley, the gameplay/storyline is a bit better, the graphics are fantastic. If you enjoyed Stardew Valley then you will definitely enjoy this game!

I highly recommend it even though Team17 is still working the bugs out it.  Yes the game has some bugs and glitches but it is a new release (at least for the Switch), and they are working on patches and updates for it, but I still enjoy it even with them.

The Seventh Sunday of Easter – One Body
Celebrant: Rt. Rev. Dr. Edward L. Tatro, Jr.

Processional Hymn: In Christ There is No East or West

Celebrant: Alleluia. Christ is risen.
The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia.

The Celebrant says: Almighty God, unto whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of thy Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love thee, and worthily magnify thy holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Then the following may be said: Hear what our Lord Jesus Christ saith:
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.
