Tumbling in the Sand

It’s not all about you

Texts for June 26, 2011: Jeremiah 28:5–9; Psalm 89:1–4, 15–18; Romans 6:12–23; and Matthew 10:40–42

Audio of sermon: Pentecost-L14A.2011

“…I think that the ultimate victory that sin could possibly have in a life
in any life
would be to make us forget the truth
that it isn’t all about us.

Omphaloskepsis or incurvatus in se

That somehow God wasn’t strong enough to overcome sin
that God’s love somehow wasn’t powerful enough to heal the most broken things in this world
that God somehow didn’t care enough about every single part of God’s creation
that God wasn’t working to free it
to heal it
to transform it…”
