11:15am Sermon, The Rev. Dr. William Lupfer: "A Road Map to the Kingdom"
During his sermon at the 11:15am service, the Rev. Dr. William Lupfer pointed to today’s Gospel reading as a to-do manual for Lent and the Old Testament lesson as a roadmap—together they help us continue manifesting the kingdom of God. “When you turn back to God, you see others differently. When your heart opens to God in love, by working into the deep temptations that you have and not falling into self-pity, when your heart turns back to God in love, then you begin to see God in other people, and especially in who you haven’t seen God in before.”
Today’s readings: Deuteronomy 26:1-11; Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16; Luke 4:1-13; Romans 10:8b-13.
