Mennonite ReduxPosted: February 19, 2008
Well, my comments about the Mennonite sermon I heard on Sunday were noticed by a website called The Urban Mennonite http://www.urbanmennonite.com/. They even posted the sermon in an item titled “Episcopalian treads warily in Mennoland (and the sermon that bored him).” Unfortunately, they posted the wrong sermon! A good one at that http://www.pvmcsermons.com/2008/02/barbara-moyer-lehman-new-adventure-new.html. Once you get past the flame sitting on the pulpit that at any moment might ignite the preacher’s pink blouse, the fact that it’s nearly 22 minutes long, and all the references to her “great, great, great, great, great grandfather,” she does a nice job of relating the danger and risk of Abraham and Sarah’s journey to our own challenges in trusting God. Good stuff.
