Since his grace has touched us, since we have been washed in the waters of his baptism, been filled with his Spirit, and made members of his body, the message of Jesus' kingdom, his rule, is unvarnished good news.'

Sermon for the Twenty-Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, November 12

Texts for the Day

'For the judgment of God is not against the out-group, but the in-group as well. We recognize our complicity with and our participation in the absence of justice and righteousness in the world. In our angers, our fears, our jealousies, our frustrated desires, our aggressions, and our false judgments, we contribute to the total of the alienation of the world from God. Alas for those who desire the day of the Lord without recognizing their complicity.


Is there hope? We wouldn’t be here if there weren’t.'
