Last Friday, May 19, pastor, theologian, and author Tim Keller passed away. The longtime pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan and author of books such as The Reason for God was known for his thoughtful sermons, calm demeanor, and a ministry that extended beyond his own denomination and even his fellow Christians to the wider world of elite society. It's rare, especially today, for someone to be called “a giant” by both a top theologian and a New York Times columnist. Rarer still will such a prominent figure be regularly described as unassuming, living out the exhortation of Rudyard Kipling to be someone who can “walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch.” It's notable that even his critics, which he certainly had, have refrained from doubting his self-effacing grace and kindness for others. Keller was in his forties before he showed up on the public's radar. Oddly enough, he went to Manhattan after pastoring a small-town Virginia church for nine years. Success in the Big Apple was by no means a sure thing. A theologically conservative pastor setting up shop in the “Babylon” of downtown New York City had all the makings of a fish-out-of-water story where the well-meaning parson was doomed to failure even before he set out. Keller took pains to know his audience, leveraging his own intellectual rigor into sermons for his highly educated hearers. He refused to talk down, much less shout down. Nor did he attempt to make the distinctives of the Christian faith more palatable. He took strong stands on the deity of Christ, the reliability of Scripture, the resurrection, the hopelessness of secularism, and the enduring relevance of Christian sexual ethics. From an initial church plant of 15 people in 1989, Redeemer Presbyterian Church grew to a network of multiple congregations with thousands of people attending each week. In time, his influence extended to other pastors, who were inspired by his example and teaching, and set out to emulate in their own communities what Keller had done in New York. Keller was also instrumental in cross-denominational efforts, linking like-minded Christians to share their ideas and cooperate in endeavors to enhance the presence of the Church around the world. He was a co-founder of The Gospel Coalition, a broadly Reformed network that is among the most influential voices of contemporary evangelicalism, and a central figure in a Reformed resurgence among those who became known as the “Young, Restless, and Reformed.” He was also an original signer of the Manhattan Declaration, a Christian statement on life, marriage, and religious liberty because, as he put it at the time, “these are biblical.” Keller communicated a confidence that believers could maintain the classical faith of Christianity without being ashamed when dealing with cynical neighbors. Christians could, he believed, meet the claims of the world face-to-face because the Bible offers an accurate and holistic explanation for reality and the human condition and grounds the hope for which people are truly searching. His sermons offered a robust biblical analysis, a keen awareness and understanding of culture, and allusions to art, history, Lewis, and Tolkien. Ironically, his critics include progressive Princeton students and faculty, who couldn't stomach the idea that he would be honored by their school, and conservative Christians, some of whom believed his winsomeness to be weakness, and others who, as I often did in recent years, disagreed with his posture about politics and political allegiance. Even so, Keller was a remarkable gift to Christ's Church at an incredibly important cultural moment. Even in disagreeing, he made us better by, as St. Paul put it, “set(ting) the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity,” and reminding us that, in the end, the resurrection secures our hope for today and for eternity. As he said on a podcast near the end of his life, in his trademark thoughtful and calm demeanor, “If Jesus Christ was actually raised from the dead, if He really got up... then everything is going to be all right.” This Breakpoint was co-authored by Dr. Timothy D. Padgett. For more resources to live like a Christian in this cultural moment, go to breakpoint.org.

Today's Topics: 1) Gospel - Jn 15:26—16:4a - Jesus said to His disciples: "When the Advocate comes Whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth Who proceeds from the Father, He will testify to Me. And you also testify, because you have been with Me from the beginning. "I have told you this so that you may not fall away. They will expel you from the synagogues; in fact, the hour is coming when everyone who kills you will think he is offering worship to God. They will do this because they have not known either the Father or Me. I have told you this so that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you."

Friends of the Rosary: On May 13, 1917, in Fatima, Portugal, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three poor shepherd children — Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco. Today, the Catholic Church celebrates the memorial of Our Lady of Fatima. Today is also the traditional commemoration of Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, to honor her relationship to the Holy Eucharist and place her before us as a model in our duties and devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. The message of Fatima is a call to conversion of heart, repentance from sin, and a dedication to the Blessed Virgin Mary, especially through the prayer of the Rosary, works of penance, and recourse to her Immaculate Heart. On October 13 Mary said: “I have come to exhort the faithful to change their lives, to avoid grieving Our Lord by sin; to pray the Rosary. I desire in this place a chapel in my honor.” In the summer of 1916, an Angel appeared to three shepherds several times and taught them a prayer to the Blessed Trinity. Further apparitions of the Virgin took place on June 13, July 13, August 19, September 13, and October 13. In the last apparition, the woman revealed her name in response to Lucia's question: “I am the Lady of the Rosary.” She called again called for prayer and penitence. On that day a celestial phenomenon also took place: the sun seemed to tumble from the sky and crash toward Earth. As at Lourdes, the “apparitions” of Fatima have brought crowds of visitors. Pilgrimages, which began in the summer of 1917, have experienced growing success. Popes have shown exceptional favor toward Fatima, Pius XII, Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francisco, in particular making a visit to the shrine in Fatima.

Today's Topics: 1) Gospel - Jn 15:12-17 - Jesus said to His disciples: "This is My commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends. You are My friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from My Father. It was not you who chose Me, but I Who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name He may give you. This I command you: love one another." Memorial of Saint Pancras, Martyr Memorial of Saints Nereus and Achilleus, Martyrs Saints Pancras, Nereus and Achilleus, pray for us!

Today's Topics: 1) Gospel - Jn 15:1-8 - Jesus said to His disciples: "I am the True Vine, and My Father is the Vine Grower. He takes away every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, and everyone that does He prunes so that it bears more fruit. You are already pruned because of the word that I spoke to you. Remain in Me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in Me. I am the Vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in Me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without Me you can do nothing. Anyone who does not remain in Me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned. If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you. By this is My Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become My disciples."

May is here and car shows are starting up across the nation. Also Cinco de Mayo and Memorial day are around the corner and the official start of summer is near. I hope you have your car out or your project almost done to a point where you can drive it and enjoy the warmer weather. This time I decided to once again Ask Rick about six cars from two different categories. The first set of cars are of "pedigree"and have either a track record or history that makes them special. The other category is $10k starter cars that are ready to go out and make some summer memories. Ricks take on these is always clear and to the point.

An Auckland hapū says it will do what it can to keep a national memorial to the Erebus victims in Tāmaki Makaurau after storm damage has seen plans to build it in the Parnell Rose Garden abandoned because the land is unsafe. It's more than 43 years since the Air NZ scenic flight over Antarctica crashed into the side of Mount Erebus killing all 257 people onboard. Plans for a national memorial have been controversial with protesters and Auckland's Mayor Wayne Brown objecting to the chosen site. In the end Cyclone Gabrielle forced a change in plans.

Today's Topics: 1, 2, 3, 4) Gospel - Jn 10:11-18 - Jesus said: “I am the Good Shepherd. A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. A hired man, who is not a shepherd and whose sheep are not his own, sees a wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away, and the wolf catches and scatters them. This is because he works for pay and has no concern for the sheep. I am the Good Shepherd, and I know Mine and Mine know Me, just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father; and I will lay down My life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. These also I must lead, and they will hear My voice, and there will be one flock, one Shepherd. This is why the Father loves Me, because I lay down My life in order to take it up again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down on My own. I have power to lay it down, and power to take it up again. This command I have received from My Father.” Memorial of Saint Joseph the Worker Saint Joseph, pray for us!

Show SummaryOn this episode of Behind the Mission, we feature a conversation with Marine Corps Combat Veteran Dante' Bickham, Illustrator of PsychArmor's Military Culture Course Series sponsored by Comcast About Today's Guest After transitioning from service, Marine Corps combat Veteran Dante Bickham got a degree in graphic design and animation, but he was truly an illustrator at heart. “When I was in college, my instructor would say that Illustrator should always be the title behind my name,” says Bickham. Working on the PsychArmor military culture series put him in the role of illustrator for the first time, allowing him to do what he loved, as well as reference his time in the military, drawing on photos and memories of friends as he worked to bring the service members to life. It was also a stress reliever for him around his day job as a graphic design instructor and the stress of buying and moving into a new home. “It helped remind me of the hard work that I had put into the military.” The courses were accurate in their descriptions and character depictions, says Bickham. “I could tell that Veterans were involved in the scripting.”Links Mentioned In This EpisodeDante' Bickham on InstagramPsychArmor Resource of the WeekThis week's PsychArmor resource of the week is the military culture category of training on PsychArmor's Website.

Pastoral Reflections Finding God In Ourselves by Msgr. Don Fischer
Mark 10:22-30The feast of the Dedication was taking place in Jerusalem. It was winter. And Jesus walked about in the temple area on the Portico of Solomon. So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, "How long are you going to keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly." Jesus answered them, "I told you and you do not believe. The works I do in my Father's name testify to me. But you do not believe, because you are not among my sheep. My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can take them out of the Father's hand. The Father and I are one." Reflection I love this gospel because it seems that Jesus is a little bit perturbed and angry. He's been saying things, doing things, giving signs, and still they say, ‘Ah, would you please tell us who you are?' And what he says in response, he's saying, Listen, you have no idea how powerful I am and what I can do. And if you give yourself over to me, I will guarantee you will be safe and we will one day be one. What incredible statement coming from a God who has the power to do just that. Believe in it, trust in it. Closing Prayer Conference. Father, give us faith, let us live with faith so that we can be assured of the words that we listen to in this reading and know that there is nothing to fear about our salvation so long as we long for it. Want it, desire it. And we ask this in Jesus name, Amen.
The NFL Draft in Kansas City has passed and evaluations begin. The early returns are positive for the Chiefs, who added seven newcomers to the roster, and for Kansas City. The area entertained an estimated 300,000 fans at Union Station and the National WWI Museum and Memorial. The Chiefs and the NFL Draft are the topics on SportsBeat KC, The Star's daily sports podcast. First, you'll hear from Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt. He met with reporters on Friday, before the second and third rounds, and touched on several topics, including Patrick Mahomes' contract and the recent NFLPA findings that weren't kind to the Chiefs. After Hunt, former Chiefs return specialist Dante Hall spoke about his induction into the Chiefs Hall of Fame. I think you'll be surprised to hear about his favorite play in a Chiefs uniform. We end the show with a conversation with Chiefs beat writer Herbie Teope. On his final duty for The Star, he evaluates the Chiefs draft haul. Learn more about your ad choices.

Jesus came to his native place and taught the people in their synagogue. They were astonished and said, "Where did this man get such wisdom and mighty deeds? Is he not the carpenter's son?” Matthew 13:54–55On December 8, 2020, Pope Francis announced the beginning of the universal celebration of the “Year of Saint Joseph.” He introduced this year with an Apostolic Letter entitled “With a Father's Heart.” In the introduction to that letter, the Holy Father said, “Each of us can discover in Joseph—the man who goes unnoticed, a daily, discreet and hidden presence—an intercessor, a support and a guide in times of trouble.”The Gospel above, taken from the readings for this memorial, point to the fact that Jesus was “the carpenter's son.” Joseph was a worker. He worked with his hands as a carpenter so as to provide for the daily needs of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Son of God. He provided them with a home, with food and with the other daily necessities of life. Joseph also protected them both by following the various messages of the angel of God who spoke to him in his dreams. Joseph fulfilled his duties in life in a quiet and hidden way, serving in his role as father, spouse and worker.Though Joseph is universally recognized and honored today within our Church and even as a prominent historical world figure, during his lifetime he would have been a man who was largely unnoticed. He would have been seen as an ordinary man doing his ordinary duty. But in many ways, that is what makes Saint Joseph an ideal man to imitate and a source of inspiration. Very few people are called to serve others in the spotlight. Very few people are publicly praised for their day-to-day duties. Parents, especially, are often greatly unappreciated. For that reason, the life of Saint Joseph, this humble and hidden life lived out in Nazareth, provides most people with inspiration for their own daily lives.If your life is somewhat monotonous, hidden, unappreciated by the masses, tedious and even boring at times, then look to Saint Joseph for inspiration. Today's memorial especially honors Joseph as a man who worked. And his work was quite ordinary. But holiness is especially found in the ordinary parts of our daily lives. Choosing to serve, day in and day out, with little or no earthly accolades, is a service of love, an imitation of the life of Saint Joseph and a source of your own holiness in life. Do not underestimate the importance of serving in these and other ordinary and hidden ways. Reflect, today, upon the ordinary and “unremarkable” daily life of Saint Joseph. If you find that your life is similar to what he would have experienced as a worker, a spouse and a father, then rejoice in that fact. Rejoice in the fact that you are also called to a life of extraordinary holiness through the ordinary duties of daily life. Do them well. Do them with love. And do them by the inspiration of Saint Joseph and his spouse, the Blessed Virgin Mary who would have shared in this ordinary day-to-day life. Know that what you do each and every day, when it is done out of love and service of others, is the surest path to holiness of life for you. My Jesus, Son of the carpenter, I thank You for the gift and inspiration of Your earthly father, Saint Joseph. I thank You for his ordinary life lived with great love and responsibility. Help me to imitate his life by fulfilling my daily duties of work and service well. May I recognize in the life of Saint Joseph, an ideal model for my own holiness of life. Saint Joseph the Worker, pray for us. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: catholic-daily-reflections.comCopyright © 2023 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved.

Pastoral Reflections Finding God In Ourselves by Msgr. Don Fischer
John 6:60-69Many of the disciples of Jesus who were listening said,“This saying is hard; who can accept it?”Since Jesus knew that his disciples were murmuring about this,he said to them, “Does this shock you?What if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before?It is the Spirit that gives life, while the flesh is of no avail.The words I have spoken to you are Spirit and life.But there are some of you who do not believe.”Jesus knew from the beginning the ones who would not believeand the one who would betray him.And he said, “For this reason I have told you that no one can come to meunless it is granted him by my Father.” As a result of this,many of his disciples returned to their former way of lifeand no longer walked with him.Jesus then said to the Twelve, “Do you also want to leave?”Simon Peter answered him, “Master, to whom shall we go?You have the words of eternal life.We have come to believeand are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.” ReflectionIn this passage, when Jesus confronts those who do not believe, He is saying something most important. Faith is granted to those who are open to it by the father, it's not something we do or we can make happen. We can only long for it and know that it's a process that continues as it did in the hearts of the disciples as it grew stronger and stronger.Closing PrayerFather, bless us in our journey of faith as we continue to grow and understand more fully the gifts that you have shared with us and the power that you've given us to be a part of this work of saving the world, bringing them to life and truth. And we ask this in Jesus name, Amen.
