  • Sermon Starters (Advent 3A)(2019)

    by Doug Bratt
    Healing often depends on the kind of patience James extols in today’s Lesson but doesn’t come naturally to any of us. I recently read about a woman whom doctors sent home to recover from hip surgery. The doctors told her to stay off her repaired hip and not to put too much weight on it. This woman, however, was an active and energetic person. People marveled at her positive attitude and determination not to let a broken hip slow her down. As some people predicted, however, she also rushed the process. She pushed herself too hard. So she ended up back in the hospital to have further surgery on her broken hip. People later recognized that they should have urged her to be patient rather than praising her for her determination. She had said, “I’m not going to let this broken hip get me down.” Did she impatiently mean, however, “I’m like God and know more than the doctor or anyone else how to heal myself”?

    by Brenda Seat
    Early this year parts of California near Walker Canyon and Lake Elsinore experienced a “super bloom apocalypse,” where long dormant desert flowers in the hot dry desert exploded into bloom after rain and snow melt from the mountains watered the thirsty ground. The bloom was so vibrant and full this year that when satellites in space took pictures you could easily see the areas where the bloom was occurring. But the bloom doesn’t happen every year. The last time was in the spring of 2016 and depending on weather conditions it might not happened again for another 10 years. We have to be patient and notice the signs, when the weather and water conditions are just right, and then we see the miracle of the desert blooming...

    ("Reinhold Niebuhr, the great 20th century theologian, confessed that an infant, no matter how cute, was infallible proof of the doctrine of original sin. It takes years of patience and endurance and constant care to teach toddlers that instead of snarling and snapping over their crackers and crayons, they should willingly share them with others. It is a hard lesson to learn...")
