St. Matthew's Community with Jennifer Peak
The first in our series of interviews with parishioners, this week Amy interviews Jennifer Peak and she tells us a bit about her life and how she came to be a part of St. Matthew's. Jennifer also talks Amy about some aspects of the St. Matthew's community she has experienced the most and what life in the parish has meant to her. Jennifer emailed us after recording the episode and asked us to add the following note as an addendum to this conversation:"There is one very important thing that I should have mentioned about St. Matthew’s that I really appreciate. That is the amazing music program that David organizes. I have always sung in choirs and the church music is very important to me. Then there is also Faith and the Arts, which is not something one would find in many churches."Our thanks to Jennifer for leading off this great series of interviews!

Church and Community - Acts 4:32 - 5:11
We continue our look into the community in the early Church of Acts. This week I'm joined by Father Robert and we discuss the story of Ananias and Sapphira, who lie to Peter about the amount of their money they are giving to the fledgling Church. We discuss why the call to honesty and truthfulness in the church community is so critical and why this story unfolds the way that it does. We also talk about what possibilities might open up for the Church today if we took on a posture of extreme truthfulness and charity within the community.
