Sermon: The Serenity of Submission

In this sermon, I was suggesting that all of us who have opened the womb of our life to Christ have been given a Mary-like mission of conception, pregnancy and delivery. That is, we have ben called to receive the seed of Christ into the womb of our lives (conception) and to allow Christ to grow in the womb of our lives (pregnancy) so that God can deliver Christ through the womb of our lives to the world (delivery).

Sermon: God is Odd

I used the long geneology in Matthew 1 as the main text for this message. In this sermon I was trying my best to unpack the oddness of the Christmas story and the God who ochestrated it. I'm afraid we have heard the "good news of great joy" from the Christmas story so often that we have allowed the story to lose its oddness. And, I believe, that if the Christmas story and the God behind it loses its oddness then, in some capacity, it loses its power.

So, I invite you to click on this link and reply to the sermon on this blog with your own reflections, questions and comments.

I look forward to hearing from you.
