Liturgical Sunday: Advent 2
Sermon Title: Peace
Knox Presbyterian [audio:https://wordsfromthemiddle.ca/wp-content/uploads/101205-Knox1.mp3|titles=Peace]
St. Mark’s Presbyterian [audio:https://wordsfromthemiddle.ca/wp-content/uploads/101205-St-Marks.mp3|titles=Peace]
This week’s sermon is on peace. In a sense there isn’t much to say about peace but our Lectionary texts give us the opportunity to reflect carefully on the reality that peace without justice is a sham and a cheat. I hope you will find some things of value in one or both of these sermons. As is frequently the case, but by no means always, the St. Mark’s sermon is both longer and somewhat more focused (if that is not a paradox) due to working out some of the ideas on the good people of Knox. I’m looking forward to any and all comments on the coherence and value of this/these message(s).
