Sermon 12 September 2021 (Proper 19)

Are your ears open to the Lord? by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  Last week we saw Jesus heal a man who was deaf and could barely speak, but once healed he could speak plainly. The same spiritual truth applies to every Christian today. In order to speak God’s Word clearly we must allow that Word to be planted in our hearts and bear fruit, not least of which is cleansing our hearts from all that is not His. Only then will we be able to speak the untarnished Truth. Every Christian is called to this; every Christian is called to be Jesus’ disciple.
