Fr. Aaron serves as Rector of Advent Anglican, an Anglican Church in North America parish in the greater Seattle area. He holds an MDiv and has over two decades of experience in the Anglican tradition as a church planter, associate rector, and youth minister. His hope is that preachers may find this tour through the text to be a helpful contribution to their sermon preparation. He and Marissa live with their six children in a little town overlooking the Snoqualmie Valley.
Marissa is an author and educator. She holds an M.A. in Theology, with a special interest in church history and Koine Greek. She has served in lay ministry in the Anglican tradition for many years. Her hope is that Christians who want to sit with the Sunday texts a little longer might find the conversation here to be nourishing and life-giving. She and Aaron live with their six children in a little town near overlooking the Snoqualmie Valley. You can visit Marissa online at www.marissaburt.com
We primarily use the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL), used in corporate worship by more than twenty global denominations. As you meditate on these readings each week, you are joining the global church in unity and faith. Read more about the RCL and access resources for worship here.
We consult a wide variety of translations in our discussion.
We like to prioritize the Gospel reading and give it primary in our discussion. Beginning there anchors the rest of our conversation in a way we've come to really appreciate.
Our hope is that preachers and teachers would find our conversation a helpful component of their sermon preparation. Given this, we try and record each podcast in sufficient time for that to be useful.
