  • Prophet of Doom?

    by Bob Cornwall
  • Sermon Starters (Proper 19C)(2019)

    by Stan Mast
    I just finished re-reading 1984, the extremely grim portrayal of a world ruled by Big Brother. The insanity of that dystopian world was depressing. So I appreciated the Afterword by Eric Fromm. He pointed out that the Enlightenment brought a new literary genre into the world, the utopian novel filled with hope for a new world created by human effort. However, the horrors of WW I and II resulted in the reversal of utopian hopes and the creation of dystopian novels. The leading examples were Huxley’s Brave New World and Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm. Fromm points out that even as the Enlightenment brought a hope rooted in a resurgent humanism, the near destruction of the civilization by world-wide war spawned a hopelessness rooted in human evil. That hopelessness is now the dominant mood of our time, says Fromm. And that gives us as Christian preachers a powerful connecting point for such seemingly hopeless texts as Jeremiah 18.

  • Tikkun Olam: Repairing the World

    by Fran Ota
    ("a word which literally means the state of being 'at one' is the concept of 'tikkun olam', which literally means 'world repair'. Today it is used to refer to the pursuit of social action and social justice, but its roots originate in the teachings of the 16th century mystic Isaac Luria. Luria believed that in order to make room for the world to be created, God needed to contract, to 'hold back' in order that something else could grow"...)
