Casting out the Money Changers

Today's sermon was given by Mr. Nicholas Roosevelt a Senior at Presbyterian College who is doing an internship in Youth ministry at Our Saviour. He had the task of preaching on John 2:13-22. He did a pretty good job and he kept it short.

Did anyone note the irony of the money changing hands after the service in the parish hall where the youth were selling fresh cinnamon rolls as a fund raiser for a mission trip?

1 Corinthians 1:23-25,
"but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling-block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength. ."

It took strength to resist those cinnamon rolls.
