  • Christians Behaving Badly: On Tips and Tithing | Anne Robertson
    Blogs annerobertson2 s blog Christians Behaving Badly On Tips and Tithing Sun 02 03 2013 18 42 annerobertson2 Don t be this kind of Christian Truly I tell you whatever you did not do for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine you did not do for me Matthew 25 45 In case you missed it there was a dining incident in St Louis that has gone viral A St Louis pastor went to Applebee s as part of a large group that ran up a tab of over 200 When the bill came an 18 gratuity had been added to the total a practice very common in the restaurant industry The pastor balked and wrote a note on the bill saying I give God 10 why do you get 18 She then crossed out the 6 29 gratuity and put a big fat 0 in its place Another server saw the receipt and posted it online The pastor then called the restaurant and demanded that a whole chain of people be fired In the end only the poster of the image was fired The pastor has since called it a lapse of judgment Uh yeah and a lapse of a whole lot of other things as well To begin with the pastor s action represents a complete misunderstanding of the Christian practice of tithing I ve got a whole sermon on it but the upshot is that the tithe was established to support the maintenance of an active worship community Offerings were above and beyond that and were and still are necessary to care for those in need Good for the pastor for helping to support the church she serves with her 10 Bad on her for not remembering that God cares about how we use the other 90 as well Those who proclaim themselves to be disciples of Jesus Christ and especially those in positions of authority in the church are called to model the Christian ethic Very high on the list of Christian virtues is generosity We proclaim an abundant God who gives and gives and gives to us even when perhaps most particularly when we least deserve it The singular thing that set the earliest Christians apart was their lavish generosity with those in need The waitress snubbed in this incident made 3 50 an hour With tips she could get up to 9 00 an hour If she worked a 40 hour week and made the maximum every hour she would gross a yearly salary of 18 720 If the pastor couldn t afford to add 6 29 to her 34 93 bill she shouldn t have been eating out in the first place Pastoral salaries aren t known for being enormous but at least in my experience it is those who make the least who give the most perhaps because they know what it s like to live a life where every single dollar matters So thus far we have

  • The Communion of Saints (Apostles' Creed, Pt. 10) | Anne Robertson
    needed to pray for forgiveness and cleansing When I found Alfred the Great I felt strong when I came to Ethelred II who was called The Unready I felt a little shaky I think what I was experiencing in learning about my ancestors is what we mean when we talk about The Communion of Saints That is the line of the Apostle s Creed that we are dealing with this week and it is a mysterious line for a lot of people We tend to think of saints as those specially named by the Roman Catholic church as worthy of honor and reverence and we tend to think of Communion as our celebration of the Lord s Supper But the notion of the Communion of Saints is a much broader idea In a way The Communion of Saints is the individual version of what we talked about last week the holy catholic church Last week we talked about our corporate connection that the word catholic means universal and we believe that all churches founded on relationship with Jesus Christ are really one church one universal body of believers one holy catholic church The communion of saints takes that concept and brings it down to the individual level The word saint as it is used here in the Creed is adopting the meaning that it has in the Bible Paul writes to the saints in different places and what he means is simply the Christians the believers Chances are the Roman Catholic church is not going to be canonizing any of us in this room as saints according to its criteria But in the eyes of the Bible all of us who have professed faith in Jesus Christ can freely be referred to as saints Saints are the ones who believe the good news of Jesus Christ Communion does mean what we do when we gather to celebrate the Lord s Supper but it doesn t only mean that The whole reason we call the celebration of the Lord s Supper communion is because of what we believe we are doing at that moment We believe that we are communing fellowshipping sharing deeply both with one another and with God We share bread from the same loaf and drink from the same cup we take the same food that everybody else takes and we take it from the same source to emphasize that we are all children of the same God and are nourished by that same Holy Spirit When United Methodists celebrate Communion no one is excluded the smallest child those who belong to other faith traditions or even those who have no faith tradition at all We open up the Lord s Table as a way of affirming that we find our unity in a relationship with Jesus and Jesus never turned anyone away who came to him Sometimes they refused to come and sometimes they willingly walked away But Jesus fed all who came to him both with
