Step Out of Our Boats

After all of the political theater, the debt ceiling was passed.  I guess I should be happy.

My sermon this week touches upon this.  Maybe I’ll post the sermon when I’m done with it, but basically I’m spinning off of last week’s post when I noted that this political theater is a proxy battle for the vision for America.

In my sermon, I don’t say that the America’s future lies in the GOP’s or the Democrats’ vision.  It’s not a vision between liberal and conservative.  We need a different vision because the community we want (regardless of side) can never return.  We’ve experienced too many changes: demographically, economically, technologically, globally… While we’ve absorbed these changes, they have come at a cost.

Using Matthew 14:22-33, I say we’ve been hunkered down in our boats.  Jesus beckons us to step out of our boats.  We’ll never recover the community we once knew, but we can recover the joy and peace of that community if we’re willing to leave our boats to follow Jesus.
