There is something a little different about this Sunday’s sermons, they are entirely different from each other.
I know some of you may be saying, “I’ve listened to your same-day-different-congregation-sermon-pairs before and they are sometimes quite different. This time they are different because the Knox sermon comes from Deuteronomy and St. Mark’s sermon comes from Luke. The reason they are different is the differing composition of the congregations. At Knox this morning there were three adults and six children, all of whom stayed in the entire service, and at St. Mark’s there were eight adults and five children, all of whom went to church school, i.e. out of the service. So, not being a ninny, I reshaped what we would sing and what I would say and thus, two different sermons.
At Knox, we talked about what it means to choose, and at St. Mark’s we talked about counting the cost.
You are free to listen to either or both (or none I suppose) but I am quite interested in what anyone thinks of the very impromptu child-friendly sermon at Knox. By the way, the oldest child at Knox might have been ten, just so you know.
