Sermon for Sept 29 2013

What will it take? 

What will it take for us to take the message of Jesus Christ to heart? 

Even in Jesus’ day people wondered what will it take 

for people to take the message of God to heart. 

Even though they had a thousand years of tradition, 

the people were not always living up to who they should be in God. 

People who thought they were good 

were walking past those who were in need. 

Jesus felt they needed to change. Jesus believed they could change.

Stop judging people and start helping them

Many years ago, a friend of mine underwent chemotherapy. She found it a difficult experience, as many do, but what was most difficult for her was something she called “the stupids.”

One of the side effects of the chemo was that for nearly a year after, she could not think quickly or critically. It was almost as if something in her brain was blocking the processing of information.

She was frustrated, because as a creative and intelligent person, “the stupids” got in her way.

When making decisions, be all-inclusive

I don’t like to namedrop, but I will. I had lunch last week with Owen Sound Mayor Deb Haswell.

She was guest speaker at the meeting of the Rotary Club of Owen Sound. Politicians like to speak to groups of people.

It’s more time effective to speak to a group and get their point across.

Over lunch, we had many conversations, including the possible transfer of the Owen Sound harbour to private interests.
