Summary of what I was saying and why:
I start with the line from Jeremiah, “the days are surely coming.” And with that ran toward eschatology. I took a bit from Moltmann, a bit of sacrificial Eucharistic atonement, and Doctor Who. I wound up considering just how much the Reign of Christ is not what we expect, at any and all times.
Jesus Count: medium
Good News: it all breaks down
What did I change on my feet?
I cut a whole section that morning and adapted it back in. It was the right choice but worked better at he second service.
What didn’t work/what did I miss?
I’m not sure I communicated the change in the perspective of time well. I’m not clear to do that or if I needed to.
What did work?
I liked the Doctor Who reference. A lot.
Other sermons I liked:
Priest Lightcap considers our relationship to kings and has me pondering the significance of the border.
Priest Arnold reminds us to kneel. (And I really don’t do this justice. Please go read it.)
Priest Linman has a Star Trek reference and a reference from a hymn. Sold.
(Here’s the list of people I usually listen to. Am I missing someone?)
The Anglican Church of Canada uses the Roman Ordinary Time numbering system instead of numbering the Propers. Because all of this is new to me, I’m now indicating both numbering systems.
