Fitzroy are used to me having at least one Facebook quotation per week. I don't set out to find one but something always seems to resonate with my sermon prep.
My ritual is to read the Lectionary passages early in the week... then marinate... read the commentaries... go on a prayerful journey in my thinking of where the text needs to reach the Fitrzoy context I will be preaching into.
This week I had just read the passages in Luke 14: 7-14 and Proverbs 25: 6-7 when Grant Connor posted a photo of a Church Notice Board that said, "Christian Snobbery Is The Curse of the Church." Now there's a depth charge.
So with the Scriptures in one hand and Facebook in the other we will unpack the subversive and radical approach to relationships that Jesus was modelling and talking about. \
We will then be asking if we are snobs; socially, theologically, ethically, culturally, racially etc.
Some help might come from Rich Mullins, Marilynne Robinson, LDL and MLK...
Service at 11am... ALL WELCOME!
Still no evening event this Sunday night.
