Sermon 06 September 2020 (Proper 18)
Turn! by Fr. Dana
Simple Summary: The watchman tells it like it is: something is not right in God’s people. Ezekiel is working with believers, not heathens, not the lost. “Our sins are killing us – we can’t save ourselves!” What is the solution? “Turn!” Or, as Paul speaks to the Romans, “Wake up from your slumber”. And a second point: reconciling with a brother or sister who has sinned is one way of living out Jesus’ parable of the shepherd seeking a sheep who is lost.
