God’s Love in the face of Terror, October 2018

In the face of the grief and violence in the worldWe respond with God's LoveMorsels & Stories:  We talked about the offertory plates and when they are blessed in the service.

Sermon:  This was a hard week full of horrible news.  How do we respond?  How does God call us to respond?

The lessons can be found by clicking here (link).  I preached with Hebrews 7:23-28 in the direct background.

Sermon Round Up, OT14 P9, July 6 2014

Due to technical difficulties my recorded sermon disappeared. It was there at the end of the service but not when I went to upload it.

So straight to other sermons I liked this week:

Priest Kadel, Comfortable Words
“Jesus’ words are comfortable and simple: Come to me, Everyone! Rest with me awhile. But people, often those who claim to be the ones who Jesus is inviting, will find ways to make those words complicated and definitely uncomfortable, especially for those who are not the right kind of people.”

Priest Sherer, Yoked to God
“Being yoked to God means not having to recognize the completion of God’s purposed on earth by what we see or hear or experience but knowing everything that’s happening is happening in that truth because of our faith.”

Priest Baum, , Pentecost 4, begins with a basic law, “Anyone who drives faster than I do is a maniac. And anyone who drives slower than I do is an idiot.”

Priest Downs, Still Hope
“Jesus holds a mirror to our ridiculous and abusive tactics which neither communicate our needs or proclaim the Good News of a risen Christ, our Liberator, our Redeemer, our Lover. ”

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.

SR Gospel Alchemy, Christmas 2, 2014

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.

Theology: Christology
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?)
