First things first
An extract from the Dean's sermon for Sunday, 2 June 2019:
A life centred around love for God cannot be a selfish life.
We choose no longer to live for ourselves, but for God—and thus for others.
Imagine how different our city would be, our nation would be, and our world would be, if people were driven by their love for God and then looked for ways to express that commitment by compassionate action towards other people.
Notice, however, that Jesus is not asking people to be more religious.
He is not asking for more actions that impress other people with our investment in religion or in personal development or in spirituality.
Ever the radical prophet, Jesus goes to the heart of the matter. He demands that we love God, rather than act more religious.
