A sermon that looks at the question of What is the righteous mind? In our Gospel Jesus tells the crowd to "sit down" and offers something radically different. A God not appeased by the sacrifices of the Temple, but God known in Jesus as Abba who loves us and invites us to sit down and eat. Don't be distracted by the miracle. God provides, but even more God invites us into a whole different way of being with him. As disciples we are called to feed the world as his children. But that asks us to live with others differently because we live with God differently because of Christ.
2 Samuel 11:1-15
O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: Increase and multiply upon us your mercy; that, with you as our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
