Sermon 11 September 2022 (Proper 19)

Intercession, repentance, restoration, and service by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  Moses intercedes for God’s people after God reveals the need; David confesses his grievous sins and obtains mercy; Paul reminds himself and others of his sinful past to show the depth of God’s mercy; then Jesus makes sense of it all in His parable of the lost sheep. What sort of God would do this? “There is nothing that unbelievers and all people are so amazed at as when we [Christians] are merciful.” – John Chrysostom (344-407).
