Annika Krause (Sherbrooke member, AMBS and SFU grad) returned to speak from the lectionary. How easy it is for secular people to perceive following God’s commands as absurd. In our post-modern, relativistic, power-hungry world, people who live out a beatitudinal life (or attempt it) are perceived as ridiculous or naïve. As a result, most of us have been embarrassed at some point or other to tell people we’re Christians. If we want to live a Christ-centred life, we need to expect ridicule, take to heart his “naïve” teachings, and live a little “ridiculously.”
NOTE: a congregational meeting followed a potluck lunch.
