This sermon is a reflection on the scripture reading from the lectionary reading John 13: 31-35. In the reading Jesus tell the disciples not to worry about where he's going but to simply focus on loving one another. In my involvement in London Conferences' Youth Forum a big part of the ministry there is to play. It's importance on the simple act of loving each other is a strong and essential part of the faith work down there. I also draw much inspiration for this sermon from the movie 'Our Idiot Brother', directed by Jesse Peretz, and starring Paul Rudd.
In this sermon for Women's Sunday, I discuss the gift of communication that women have to teach men, especially young men. Too often in recent news stories we've been shocked to see young men lash out rather than better communicate. After attending London Conference's Youth Forum this past week, I was privileged to watch United Church minister and FIrst Nations Elder Rev. Matthew Stevens lead a group of young men to teach them how to communicate common ground to find resolution. This sermon is based on the lectionary reading of Acts 9: 36-43 - The resurrection of Tabitha.
