The God who says YES


An extract from the Dean's sermon for Easter 2019:

Jesus demonstrated total trust in God even to the point of death. Never seeking to be a martyr, but always ready to live into whatever God asked of him. Jesus said YES to God.

And God said YES to Jesus.

Millennia earlier, God said YES to creation and called our universe into being.

God said YES to freedom and free will.

God said YES to covenant.

God said YES to incarnation.

God said YES to a faithful soul who asked no special favours.

In God’s YES is our future and our destiny.
