This week's Sermon Podcast is up in all of the usual places.
This week we were looking at the fulcrum in the history of engagement with God.
For centuries the Jewish people engaged with God through the keeping of the law.
Jesus shifted the entire deal. In the Lectionary Reading John 8: 31-36 Jesus explained this to the Jewish Leaders in the Temple Courts. They had been slaves to the law but now a righteousness apart from the law had arrived - Jesus himself.
We then look at Romans and Galatians and Philippians and bring out this new freedom in Jesus, the truth of who Jesus is and living his ways, the good news for all people invited into this cosmic possibility of being the human beings we were created to be.
There were also warnings that as the Jewish Leaders of Jesus day we can go down roads that make us dogmatically arrogant, judgementally self righteous, pushing others away in a pharisaical exclusively.
