Have you ever known thirst? There are two kinds of thirst, crisis thirst and that ongoing sub-acute dehydration that most of us live with all the time. Well, water is to our physical life what silence is to our spiritual life. If we are to hear the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, we have to listen to the quiet. This week's sermon has some tips about how, sips and drinks and walks, and also why.
Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
