Thursday Sermon, The Rev. Elizabeth Blunt: "The Marvelous Peace of God"
Although we are all seeking peace in our lives more than ever before, we are also confronted with scripture that tells a story rife with division, paradox, and strife. “A life in Jesus demands hard choices,” preaches the Rev. Elizabeth Blunt, “It shows a preference for difficult ways; paths of justice, wisdom, integrity, and compassion that the world will not select.” If a life-long allegiance to Jesus accepts that unity for unity’s sake is not necessarily a virtue, how then can we rest in the marvelous peace of God? The scriptures are Ephesians 3:14–21 and Luke 12:49–53.
