Summary of what I was saying and why:
Jesus is the King. But as co-inheritors with Jesus, so are we. I spend some time building that argument and get to talk about Baptism (!).
Jesus Count: moderate
Good News: We are co-inheritors with Jesus.
What did I change on my feet?
Not a lot.
What didn’t work/what did I miss?
I feel like I should have made a better transition from Samuel to Jesus. I also left out the ‘how do we do this?’ ideas.
What did work?
I liked the connection with last week’s sermon. I love when I get to talk about Baptism, history, or current liturgical practice, so this was a lot of fun for me.
Other sermons I liked: The Rev Baum
George does a fabulous job with the Gospel. And gets bonus points for a Hunger Games revenue.
