Sermon on the Mount Experience
“Sermon on the Mount Experience? Sounds like an amusement park ride.” That was one of the comments I heard before today’s service. Maybe we should have worked a little harder on the title. But now that it’s over, wouldn’t you say this morning’s service was an experience?
I thought the guitar (although a bit unusual for us) provided a beautiful background for the reading and accented, through key changes, when the readings moved from one beatitude to the next. The readers and signers symbolized the diversity of our congregation. We are deaf and hearing, male and female, Spanish speaking and English speaking, young, old and everywhere in between. We are various shades of white, brown and black. But we are all one in Christ and united in our devotion to follow his teachings.
Remember, almost all the you’s are ya’ll’s! The sermon on the mount was not written to us as individual Christians but as the united body of Christ. “Ya’ll . . ., all ya’ll, are the light of the world!” Let’s live Jesus, for the sake of the world.
