Proper 19 9-16-12
Summary of what I was saying and why:
“Taking up our cross” is about living a life already given away to Jesus.
Theology: what it is to be a Christian
Jesus Count: low
Good News: It’s not about dying on a cross, it’s about living as a Christian.
What did I change on my feet?
Not much, other working around the things I forgot.
What didn’t work/what did I miss?
I had written a section about Simon of Cyrene taking up the cross for Jesus as someone to emulate that I forgot.
What did work?
I didn’t have a favorite line or part, but it really seemed to connect with the congregation. I did enjoy going back and rereading Ignatius’s letters.
Other sermons I liked:
The Rev Linman
A great treatment of the disciples and a beautiful interweaving with parish life
A Sermon on James, tongues, and life today.
(Don’t see your sermon or a sermon you liked? Maybe I don’t know about it. Leave me a comment with a link and I’ll take a look.)
