Sermon added

I’ve added AKMA’s sermon from yesterday to the preaching page. You can also see it over on his blog where the text is available too.

Whilst I was listening to the sermon, images from a novel started to leap around in my brain. It took me a moment or two to think which one it was but eventually I pinned it down. It was Jame’s Baldwin’s brilliant novel, Go Tell It On the Mountain which I’ve not read in years. Time to pull it off the shelf again. The bit I was thinking of was  the bit where the young protagonist finds himself hitting the floor on a Sunday, struck by an overwhelming sense of the holy. I think Baldwin describes something highly complex in that section – compromised surrender, I think it is. Utterly brilliant, anyway. One for church book groups everywhere.
