Today, we celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord, when Joseph and Mary brought Christ into the Temple to offer sacrifice for him...and when two prophets came upon them and declared Jesus to be the Messiah. 

But why can't we accept a Savior so freely offered to us? Why does the self-inflicted wound of sin keep us from taking Him into our arms? One answer: the Fear of Death. In today's sermon, the Rev. Bishop Kristina Rake will explain why Paul says the Devil rules this world through the "power of the fear of death", which enslaves us all. Moving through the Old Testament and into the New, Bishop Rake shows us how we fell from Grace into Original Sin and how Our Lord, Jesus Christ, faced the death Adam couldn't and killed death for us. 

And then she will explain a way to get out of the hamster wheel and into a healthy relationship with God. 

The Charismatic Universalist Church is an Independent Catholic Church. While our theology is rooted in the ancient tradition of the original Christian Church, which was Catholic, we also continue in our Master's example of all-embracing love. Therefore, though our beliefs and liturgy are traditional, we call EVERYONE to the Sacraments, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or marital status. Bishop Rake can now perform same-sex marriages in Illinois!
