Link: Gardening, July 13 2014
Summary of what I was saying and why:
I got caught up in the last line where some produced 100, 60, or 30 fold. Particularly in the 70-fold difference. Which Jesus doesn’t seem to care about.
Jesus Count: low
Good News:Its about doing more than how much we’ve done
What did I change on my feet?
I did a lot of tweaking on my feet. The best part was when I talked about the work of prayer. The worst was that I don’t feel that I helped pull things together in anyway.
What didn’t work/what did I miss?
I felt like this sermon wandered a lot. I think there’s still a way to preach these ideas, but I think I’d need to tease them out more.
What did work?
Gardening. People connected to gardening, to the talk of work, and the joy of it.
Other sermons I liked:
Priest Castellan, Contra Gnostics
“But here is the funny thing about heresies—old heresies never die; they just reappear like zombies.”
Priest Lightcap, Empires
A little bit Breakfast Club and a great transcript of a visual sermon.
(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. I’m indicating both numbering systems.
