52 Postings in Under a Year

Take one down and pass it around... or so the song goes. The good thing about a weekly sermon review is I don't get "Blog Ennui." Today's sermon/skit was a little hard to follow due to lack of amplification for the kids voices. I got the message. To me the message is this, we would like to throw them from from city walls after they speak in Church, but we might be making a big mistake. Most of us would be in the angry crowd after hearing the voice of prophesy. We are trapped by the layers of "knowledge" we have placed over our inner selves and we cannot sense the truth especially when spoken by another earthly creature. I may not have liked the "skit" today, but it reminds me to keep an open heart and quiet mind. I will need to better develop these things if I am to return next year on youth Sunday.

  1. Today, I had the very distinct pleasure of attending a celebration of the 47th anniversary of the ordination of Fr. Joe Mills. This magnificent liturgy was celebrated at the Church of the Good Shepherd in York and included an anthem built around John 14:6. "I am the way, the truth and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Everything was perfect except for one thing: why wasn't this celebration held at Our Saviour? I don't even recall any mention of this upcoming anniversary in the bulletins, the Acorn, or otherwise. Unbelievable!

  2. Unbelievable is right. We should have filled the Church of the Good Shepherd. Alas, Joe has been thrown from the heights. "No prophet is accepted in his own country." (Luke 4:24)
