Thank you again for your prayers and good wishes as I was recovering from my latest bout with Covid. Thanks to all of you and the wonders of science and medicine, I’m doing much better now. I’m impatiently waiting out the ten-day quarantine as I recover and looking forward to returning to my regular schedule.
In this week’s gospel reading, Jesus tells us that he is the Way, the Truth, and the Life… and the only way to God. It’s a reading frequently heard at funerals where there are all sorts of people present, many of whom are not Christian and many of whom don’t believe what he says. I’ve always wanted a chance to stop the service and teach on this passage, but that’s not appropriate when there’s other important work being done. But, this week…
So, in this sermon, I get to say what I’ve wanted to tell people so many times over the years. Jesus is the way, but his real point is that since he is the living example of Love, he’s genuinely saying that Love is the way to God.
