Sermon: Preach down a church? September 8, 2019

Sermon

13 Pentecost—Proper 18-C-2/ September 8, 2019

William Bradbury

Deuteronomy 30:15-20, Psalm 1, Philemon 1-21, Luke 14:25-33

I remember hearing a talk by a pastor of a church in Atlanta and someone asked him, how he had built a church with 2000 members. He said “Well, when I started, we had 300 hundred members, but after a year I had preached them down to 12, and with those 12 God built this church.”

Summer Mystery Club 2019

The new stained glass window hanging in the Parish Hall was “found” by this year’s Summer Mystery Club. The Club Kids spent the summer learning about Christian Symbols and deciphering coded messages. In particular, they learned about the Trinity Symbol in the center of this window, which can also be found in the Rose Window in the Chapel. The Mystery Club window was made by artisans in NH and commissioned by the leaders of the Mystery Club- along with the “SMC” for Summer Mystery Club, there is one other detail that gives away its “mysterious” origins….can you find it?

Sermon–September 1, 2019

Sermon by William Bradbury

Sirach 10:12-18, Psalm 112, Hebrews 13:1-8, 15-16, Luke 14:1, 7-14

“On one occasion when Jesus was going to the house of a leader of the Pharisees to eat a meal on the sabbath, they were watching him closely.” This is not the “let’s watch the great man in order to raise ourselves up into greater faithfulness”, but rather it was “let’s watch this rebel in order to find a way to take him down.”. Which raises the question, what is it about Jesus that so threatens the religious leaders?
