Sermon 10 October 2021 (Proper 23)

Are you stiff-arming God? by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  We like to think God is with us. We find comfort in that thought. Sometimes we claim the promise, “God is with us”, and it is true…to a point. He promises to never leave us or forsake us, but if we are going our own way He will not provide a smooth way forward. We must be with Him, which requires an intimacy that too many believers fear. Are you one of them? Are you pushing God away?
