Well it has been another week and for the purposes of this blog, don’t tell anyone, it has been a very challenging week. Not for anything in particular, just “because.”
The sermon title hinges on a play on words, for lack of a better term in that “Who are we to judge?” can be either “Who are we that we think we are capable of judging?” or “Who is it that we should be judging?” So which is it? or for that matter can we, or do we have to, choose. Well, I am letting you decide this week.
PS As always, I am very interested in your feedback and I am well aware that this week I have left myself “vulnerable” to serveral different approaches (I won’t say “attacks” because we are all friends here).
