Sermon for the 19th Sunday after Pentecost

Sermons and audio

DM 03242016 0289When the people in the wilderness lose patience and just want things to be normal again, they turn from God who expects moral behavior and create a God who extracts wealth to bring prosperity. And when God threatens to let them suffer the consequences of their choice, Moses pleads with God to remember the promises made to Abraham and his descendants who all chose, ultimately to do the moral things that God taught them would bring prosperity and peace.

A single person, pursuing the common good, seeking a moral universe can change the history of an entire nation.
