SR Knowing Our Story

Link: Knowing our story

Summary of what I was saying and why:
After everything that last week was, I didn’t know where I was going with with this week’s sermon. But I kept hearing echoes of remember who you are. Coupled with the reading from Deuteronomy and the experience of growing up in Montana this became about knowing our story.

Theology: Identity
Jesus Count: low
Good News: we are the people of God

What did I change on my feet?
The entire introduction. Truthfully that appeared between arriving at Church and the collect. Thanks be for the Holy Spirit.
What didn’t work/what did I miss?
I missed a line toward the end: “we are the people Jesus died and, more importantly, lived for; we are the beloved of God.”
What did work?
You can’t see the people nodding as I talked about being a 5th generation Montanan or hear the conversation afterwards, but this worked in ways I never imagined.

Other sermons I liked:

Priest Sherer preaches on Lent and the St Theresa quote “God desired me, so I came closer.”

Priest Sinclair who preaches on the message of ‘if’.

Priest Giroux wins my eternal favor with the lines “Some of the early church fathers were party poopers. These are the people who brought us the idea that the human body is disgusting, dirty, and evil.” And then he works in a story about a puppy.

(Don’t see your sermon or a sermon you liked? Maybe I don’t know about it. Leave me a comment with a link and I’ll take a look.)
