Sermon 14 August 2022 (Proper 15)

Wheat or chaff? His fire is burning by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  ‘Let the prophet who has a dream recount the dream, but let the one who has My word speak it faithfully. For what has straw to do with grain?’ declares the Lord. That’s a somewhat different take on the concept of the wheat and the tares. Then He says, ‘Is not My word like fire‘. And then Jesus declares, “I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!” This is worth taking a deeper look!
