First Sunday After Epiphany
Date:Sunday, January 13, 2013 - 11:00am
Sermon Title:"The Wisdom Jesus"
Reference:Luke 3:15-16 21-22
Luke 3:15-16, 21-22
As the people were filled with expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Messiah, John answered all of them by saying, “I baptize you with water; but one who is more powerful than I is coming; the thong of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. That one will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Child, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”
Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though being in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied Christ’s self, taking the form of a servant, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, Christ humbled Christ’s self, and was obedient to the point of death – even death on a cross.
Therefore God also highly exalted Jesus and gave Jesus the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father-Mother.
Angela, a deacon whose secondary appointment is to Dumbarton UMC will offer this Sunday's witness to the word.
Angela’s sermon borrows the title of “The Wisdom Jesus” by Episcopal priest Cynthia Bourgeault, which also directs the content. Two on-line retreats led by Cynthia Bourgeault on “Centering Prayer” and “The Wisdom Jesus” are available at Spirituality and Practice.com. She invites you to check out this website. Another good website for further learning and daily emails is Father Richard Rohr’s Center for Action and Contemplation (cac.org).
