SR Holiness Gap, Epiphany 7 2014

Link: Holiness Gap, Epiphany 7 2014

Summary of what I was saying and why:
Be holy. Be Perfect. I love these sections where we see the rationale behind the laws that make us so uncomfortable. And I hate it. Holy, perfect are not things we become, not like God is. So I started thinking about not becoming like. And then the uncanny valley.

Theology: Anthropology
Jesus Count: low
Good News: God loves us

What did I change on my feet?
Each service started differently. I kept tweaking how I described the gap.
What didn’t work/what did I miss?
I wish I’d used, “God is not disquieted by us.” I think I made the point but I missed the continuity I could’ve created linguistically.
What did work?
I think the uncanny valley is a good analogy for this holiness snarl.

Other sermons I liked:

Priest Downs points out that Jesus is teaching us to rebel.

Priest Castellan connects Sochi’s dogs and the demanding nature of people.

Priest Linman reminds us that we all pick and choose—and offers some guidelines.

Priest Kadel preaches on asparagus and neighbors.

(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.
