Sermon on expectations and hopes as a people of God. We are the place where the Spirit resides, the hope of the prophets we have seen in our own day. But when the crisis comes we have to maintain our faith, our trust in the process of God's creation and new creation in us.
Always we begin again.
Stir up your power, O Lord, and with great might come among us; and, because we are sorely hindered by our sins, let your bountiful grace and mercy speedily help and deliver us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
