The Great Commandment

Sermon given by the Rev. Nathan Stomberg on 22 Pentecost (10/29/2023).

If we are not willing to love when it is difficult, or inconvenient, or when it requires us to show charity to those we do not particularly like (perhaps even to love our enemies!) then we have not love at all, and our relationships will suffer as a result. The evidence is of course abundant in the breakdown of marriage and the family, but the same is true of our relationship with God – we face similar temptations to reduce it down to a feeling or a transaction.

Readings: Exodus 22:21-27; Psalm 1; 1 Thessalonians 2:1-8; Matthew 22:34-36
