Don’t bury beneath the ground

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. -Amen 1. Today’s Gospel is the so-called “parable of the talents”. It’s a long text, but it’s not so hard to understand, though there is something uncomfortable left behind after we have heard the parable. Nowadays, the word “talent” is used […]

What I learn from detective Harry Bosch

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. -Amen 1. We live in a time when people are often shouting, yelling and insisting on something. A considerable number of so called “You Tubers” compete daily for the number of views they can get for their video shows on the […]

Fyrstu jólin á Íslandi

Hvað eru jól? Jólin eru auðvitað stór kristileg hátíð víða um heim. Tvö þúsund árum eftir fæðingu Jesú Krists hafa jólin þróast í mismunandi átt og á fjölbreytlega vegu. Jólin eru hluti af kirkjuárinu og því skiljum við kirkjunnar fólk þau í samhengi við aðra hluta kirkjuársins líkt og við ævi Jesú sem heild. Því […]

But make it sure that […]

Ef það er einhver grátandi…

Í samskiptum við flóttafólk í gegnum starfsemi í kirkjusöfnuðum, hef ég margsinnis heyrt flóttafólk segja: „Ég varð hissa þegar ég lærði þegar ég kom til Evrópu að kristin kirkja hjálpaði flóttamönnum án tillits til þess hvort við værum kristin, múslimar eða annarrar trúar. Ég vissi það ekki. Ég hélt að kirkjan hugsaði eingöngu um sitt […]

“What do you want to do?”


“What do you want to do?” Isn’t this the question that constantly follows us and sticks around our lives? Moreover, it’s not only the question that we ask other people, but the one we keep asking ourselves. We all must remember the times when we were asked of this when we were small children: “What […]

Between yesterday and tomorrow

The another reason why we pray only for today’s bread is that Jesus teaches us to “live today”, to live this day. If we look at how the foundation of our lives is built up, we have to admit that we can only ever live for “today”. To be precise: we are only alive in […]
