Sermon: “It’s All about Me–NOT!”
The First Sunday in Kingdomtide, September 3, 2017
Scripture Link: Matthew 16:21-28
“When the roof over your head becomes the floor beneath your feet, no one cares about the color or creed of his or her rescuer. No one passes judgment because a hero’s boat is too big, or his means are too meager. No one says, “Thanks for the rope, but I’d rather wait for someone more like me…” Steve Hartman, CBS, “On the Road.” The tragic, yet heroic stores about Hurricane Harvey perfectly express what it means to carry the cross and become a disciple of love in Jesus.
*The names of the Sundays are taken from Pastor’s book, The Bible Through the Seasons: A Three-Year Journey with the Bible. There are thirteen Sundays in the season of Kingdomtide — autumn in the northern hemisphere, spring in the southern. Advent begins on December 2.
