It is good to be back after a couple of Sundays away. Three fifths of our family were very unexpectedly given the opportunity to spend a week in Cuba and, not being ninnies, we took it. We had a lovely time with some other family members who were there with us and the Cuban people we met.
You may notice the unusual disparity in the lengths of the two sermons. This came about as a result of a bridge being out and no indication until I was at the bridge that I couldn’t get to the town of Briercrest and Knox Presbyterian my usual way. I eventually got there with the long distance help of Heather (my wife and lifelong navigator) but was a quarter of an hour late. I felt some time pressure and gave in to it. If you usually only listen to one or the other, this might be a good week to listen to both . . . .
This Sunday we look at the nature of choice in the life of a New Testament follower of God versus that of an Old Testament follower, and, spoiler alert, there are some considerable differences. I would be happy to hear from anyone who thinks I over or understated the differences.
Knox Presbyterian Who said this would be easier?
St. Mark’s Presbyterian Who said this would be easier?
