Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 16-DEC-2018 - 9.30 AM Sermon
Rev Sandy Boyce
Advent 3 – "One human family / food for all" – Ahead of the reading and sermon there is an account from one of our members of the collapse and extinction of communities of bees who had lived for years in her suburban garden – a local climate change tragedy linked to our lack of care for God's creation. ---
When John the Baptist appeared out of the desert preaching a baptism of repentance, the advice he offered to questioners was to be merciful, to love justice, to look after one another, not to cheat, and not to assert power to the detriment of others because of religious heritage. And someone greater than John would be coming to bring it about. The sermon includes a plea for us to look after each other in relation to our planet, that we might achieve food security, improved nutrition, sustainable agriculture, and an end to hunger.
Luke 3: 7-18
