The way of love

January 13, 2019

This is the sermon Bishop Scott Mayer preached at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Fort Worth on January 13, 2019.  In this sermon he explores the power of love, and the impact of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s bold declaration that “if it’s not about love, it’s not about God.” That message resonated with people as they shift from seeing church as a place to go to seeing church as a body of people, to seeing Christianity as a way that awakens us to a changed life, a life lived fully in relationship with God.

Bishop Mayer speaks of the apostles only slowly coming to understand that Jesus’ ministry is to everyone, even the gentiles – that the message of God’s love is for everyone. And he speaks of St. Luke’s 70 years of being witnesses to that love.
