What’s in Kelvin’s Head
The Blog of the Provost of St Mary’s Cathedral, Glasgow
I rather enjoyed preaching this one….
A very fine sermon indeed. You manage to put in one short but wonderfully crafted paragraph what the church and our faith should be all about! So very inspiring, uplifting and full of hope for a better future. Such a contrast with sermons preached in other places this weekend.
And a congregation who hung onto your every word as well…
Q – Where is this place?
A – Heaven on earth!
Good on you, Kelvin. Keep the Faith – and continue to inspire a needy world with what you know, personally, to be the Good News of Christ for ALL people. “Christ is risen! Alleluia!”
Kelvin, I’m new to your blog but as we’re still celebrating Eastertide, I just want to say thanks for this sermon! As a refugee from the ‘Cruel Cardinals’ I firmly believe that the opposite of love is not hate, but fear, and for me the true Easter message is about Jesus’ triumph over fear.
I also believe as a Christian, we’re called to exercise love and compassion, no matter how difficult the situation – to love not fear.
So regardless of how difficult it can be at times, let’s hope for the grace that we can remember the all-encompassing love we are given by the Risen Christ, regardless of colour, gender, sexuality or material possessions. As you said, Alleluia! Alleluia!
