Sermon 27 Oct 2019
A blemished lamb by Fr. Dana
Simple Summary: Imagine: You and your “significant other” are at a concert of your favourite artist; you begged them to come because the artist is really important to you – your life was changed through their work. You’re totally engaged, letting the sights and sounds soak into you and carry you away. Your significant other squirms … yawns … after a while their head nods. They change positions – often! They pull out their phone and check all their social media, maybe even taking a selfie of the two of you and posting it. They get so involved they start whispering to themselves … even turning to you to make comments, totally unaware of what you are feeling and interrupting your immersion in the experience.
Two questions: (1) Does your “significant other” love you? (2) Do they respect the artist?
