A few Sunday's ago, we were blessed with being able to open up services on Sunday to the entire community. As everyone knows, over the last few months we've been having to limit Sunday services to about half our community at a time due to COVID-19. Being able to invite everyone and have a larger space to experience communal worship and partake together, as community, of the Eucharist was like a breath of fresh air for many of us.
With this first community wide instance of all being back together, I took the opportunity to preach about the importance of community, and one of the most central parts of healthy community; commitment. Many people that were able to attend suggested that the sermon be shared with everyone, so I recorded it and would like to offer to all of you.
I pray that this simple reflection about the importance of community in regards to our spiritual development, growing roots of love, and collectively seeing each other as essential on our journey towards on salvation may be edifying for you all. You can access the recording HERE.
