Jesus our Mother Hen; Lent 2C 2013

Sermons and audio

It’s taken years for me to finally understand the deep significance of Jesus, the Lamb of God, describing himself as a Mother Hen gathering her chicks under her wings in Jerusalem. It was reading a missionary’s experience while teaching in Tanzania that was where I found the key to unlocking what I believe is his meaning.

Having understand him finally, I started to ask what you and I in the Church were expected to do as a result? I found my answer in the final Collect for Mission in Morning Prayer.

See where you find your answer.

    It might be a pain for you to produce these audios & to post them within 24 hours. Please know that they matter. Folks do actually listen all the way through. Sometimes, as I just did in the pre-dawn Sonoran desert, more than once.

    God, speaking through your voice thousands of miles away, has given me much to consider. Thank you.
