Tumbling in the Sand
The audio of the sermon: Sermon for Christ the King
… when we separate ourselves from others
when we refuse to acknowledge, as Dorothy Day said, our own soul’s hunger and our own homelessness,
we separate ourselves from a God who said that it is not good that we be alone.
And I believe that is the tragic judgment of this parable.
But, I hope that the good news and promise is this —
Even on the cross, our King, who separates the sheep and the goats, cries out for the forgiveness of those who nailed him there,
And on the beach with Peter, the resurrected Christ gave a meal and love and forgiveness and promise.
So let us, beggars and sinners all, cling to that.
