Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 29-OCT-2017 - 11.00 AM Sermon
Rev Sandy Boyce
Pentecost 19 – At the core of the gospel is the three-fold love of God, neighbour and self, loves against which all Christians must meaaure their lives. God is known and encountered in our following of Christ into different values and interactions with others, and different ways of being in the world with our neighbours. In this sermon our preacher describes the ways in which members of the UCCP, the United Church of Christ in the Philippines, in the Central Luzon region, are responding to the call to be companions to the poor and oppressed. The desperately poor and oppresed include indigenous hunters and gatherers driven off their lands by the wealthy and powerful, and now living in poverty and hopelessness with little chance of employment.
Deuteronomy 34: 1-12; Matthew 22: 34-46
