Trinity 20, 2021 – Sermon

(Modified 2021-10-17: Added audio recording of this sermon)

St. Mary’s Anglican Church, Trinity 20, October 17, 2021 Revd. Canon Claude Schroeder

Audio recording of this sermon

The story of Job in the Old Testament, from which our first lesson this morning was taken, is the story of man whose life fell apart, and whose happy, orderly existence was plunged into chaos, and subjected to intense suffering, and who was left wondering, “What did I do to deserve this? Where is God in all of this?” 

I think it’s a very timely Scripture for us today in light of the chaos of the times in which we live, where so much of life is seems to be spinning out of control, defying and resisting all our attempts to manage and control, and where we find ourselves struggling to keep from drowning if only emotionally in this sea of chaos in which we have been plunged.

Trinity 18, 2021 – Sermon

(Modified 2021-10-03: Added audio recording of this sermon)

St. Mary’s, Regina, Trinity 18, October 3, 2021 Mark 10. 1-15  Revd. Canon Claude Schroeder

Audio recording of this sermon

I think today’s sermon would be aptly titled, “ Uncomfortable Words: Part 2” following on from “Uncomfortable Words Part 1”, which was last Sunday. This was the bit about causing one of Jesus’ little ones to lose faith in Him, and getting thrown into the sea with a millstone around your neck, and then better to amputate the hand and the foot, and gouge out the eye that causes you to stumble, than to be thrown into hell where the worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched…

And today’s Uncomfortable Word?
