Trinity 5 ~ Psalm 130
2 Corinthians 8:36 – end
Mark 5: 21 to end
May I speak in the name of the living God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen
Our God is a God of Surprises. And on one level, nobody here today is more surprised than I am to find myself standing before you preaching my first sermon as an Ordained Deacon in the new creation of Father Jonathan. Thank you God of Surprises!
Yet on another level perhaps those of you who are regular members of our congregation will not be so surprised - for reasons that have little to do with me. I say this because it is in the DNA of this small church that we frequently and regularly inspire, encourage, guide and prepare candidates for ordination.
