by Jerome Creach
As much as any psalm in the Psalter, Psalm 27 expresses trust in the lord and claims absolute dependence on God.1
1 Corinthians 1:10-18 Commentary
by Jane Lancaster Patterson
It may seem odd to preach Paul during Epiphany, when the Church customarily focuses on the explicit gospel narratives of the revelation of God in Christ.
