It's complicated

Extract from a sermon by the Dean on Sunday, 26 July 2020



Week after week, day by day, it is our task to bring out from the storehouse of faith some treasure—some piece of wisdom—that is just right for the challenges we face in everyday life.


Sometimes the Scriptures tell us what to think or how to act.


More often than not, they invite us to judge (to discern), like Solomon of old.


What is wisdom?

How shall we act?

How do we life justly?

What does salvation look this like in this particular situation?

Yes, it is complicated.


But the core principles are simple:


Do no harm. Love our neighbour as ourselves. Choose life. Stay humble.


The full text of the sermon and a video recording are available online.
