Sermon: No Place Like Home - no audio this time
There’s nothing like a good cup of coffee at . . .
There’s no place like home
sometimes a place of conflict and tension
A man’s home is his castle, his wife is his queen
How do we react when the going gets rough?
all in it together
keep accounts short - forgiveness and restoration
endure riches and poverty, sickness and health
What happened to Joseph and Mary, people who were guarding the promised Child, God the Son?
faced challenges from officials who wanted to kill the child
left home suddenly to hide
rarely seemed to know the next step to take
There’s no place like home. Where is that home?
in the presence of God the Son
the Church, where all the gifts of God operate, the whole body assembled
the place we are fed by Word and Sacrament
the place we offend one another
the place we are reconciled to one another
most important, the place we are reconciled to God.
May the Lord use us as his instruments to welcome many more home, to Jesus the Savior.
