Sermon 03 October 2021 (Proper 22)

Maturity: becoming like Jesus by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  God drew from the first Adam’s side Eve, the one who would become his wife. Blood and water (Eucharist and Baptism) flowed from the second Adam’s side, wherein God created the Church to become the bride of Christ. In these sacraments – both Eucharist and Matrimony – God works to make the two into one. What does that mean for us as individual disciples? How does it change us, the local church?
