Sermon Title: Take up your cross . . . what does that mean?

Law. The Law. What kind of a question is this week’s sermon title? Everyone knows how we know the law, and perhaps even how we know the Law . . . or do we.
We spent some time this week looking at where knowledge of the Law begins, not with the Ten Commandments, not with the Levitical prohibitions and exhortations, not even with Jesus’ distillation of the law into two propositions but with Psalm 19.
Whenever I read Psalm 19, a section of Haydn’s The Creation always comes to mind (click here if you want to give it a listen) and it was this psalm that provided the impetus for these sermons.
I will see if I can return to this particular post with some additional thoughts but in the mean time I would, as always, be deeply appreciative of feedback of any sort.
