Link: Gospel Alchemy, Christmas 2, 2014
Summary of what I was saying and why:
I love John’s prologue. My parish has a gifted artist who has been creating an Advent piece from this imagery. (I’ll add a picture tomorrow) So I spent a lot of Advent thinking about the radical truth expressed in this passage.
Jesus Count: medium
Good News: Jesus became like us so that we would know a God like us.
What did I change on my feet?
Not on my feet, but the conclusion really only came together that morning.
What didn’t work/what did I miss?
I never did sort out a way to preach the passage and the two pieces of artwork. It would be interesting.
What did work?
The alchemy of word into flesh.
Other sermons I liked:
Priest Linman has the invitation of camels: “I have good news for you that I would like to share so that you can become better and richer.”
Priest Giroux remembers wise men following stars.
Priest Robertson preaches on light in darkness.
(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.
