Sermon 18 October 2020 (Proper 24)

No more excuses by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  We live in strange and challenging times. Jesus warned us this would come. He tells us to flee to Him, and not turn back for even a moment to embrace things which have no permanence. Scripture provides many examples of “believers” who did turn aside, and these were given to warn us.

The end may come soon, or it may not. We do not know – no one knows – but time is critical. You want the next generation to rise up? Then YOU and I must rise up and set the example, that they may stand on our shoulders. NO MORE EXCUSES.
