Past Sermon Brief 

“This Amazing Day”

April 20, 2014
Rev. Bruce Southworth

Where there is great love, there are always miracles.” Willa Cather

 … Those earliest followers of Jesus could somehow not forget his message: “Love one another.  You are the light of the world… even the lowliest.  We own nothing and must share everything.”  A message that said, you and I, all of us are wounded healers.

A message that said, “Be joyful despite the facts” (Wendell Berry) because new life can come….

Those followers began to talk among themselves, and somehow, despite all the carnage perpetrated in the name of the Church, all the hypocrisy of the ages, a spirit still shines through, and people still remember his image as one of great Love.
