Sermon: De-construction


(February 19, 2012) Like so many of us, Peter is quick to build structure and ritual around the fleeting but powerful experience of God in Christ. Where do our structures– our buildings, yes, but also our denominational systems and preoccupations with statistics– get in the way of the uncontainable experience of Christ, and where are we called to move beyond them to a journey with Jesus? (Mark 9:2-9)

I quote from passages of the “Call to Action” report in this sermon, and quite liberally from an excellent recent article in the Huffington Post by Diana Butler Bass.

  1. Excellent question! I have often asked myself the same thing. What is getting in my way as I “journey with Jesus”?
