Sermon Podcast: A Come to Jesus Meeting (Matt. 11:16-19, 25-30)
Welcoming Rev. Mary Ann Lewis to the Pulpit!
I was struck by what seem to me almost a lullaby as I read the words of the passage over and over. When I was a kid, my family shared a lot of traditions---many of them couched in music. We could always count on one or two songs at the end of the day. Those songs did what lullabies do: provide comfort, soothe pain, offer a safe place to rest.
The invitation is to “Come”. Embraced by the “lullaby”, we are empowered to share ministry with others who have “come to the meeting” We hear the invitation to make a difference in the lives of the disenfranchised and oppressed, in relationships with those with whom we share life. Resting in the womb of God we find energy to work toward the becoming beloved community with a song for the new day.
