“We come here each Sunday morning to take off our shoes and remember the ground.”

(From today’s sermon, “The Ground of our Being” – posted in Recent Sermons)

Majesty and Mystery.  We don’t always find that in every worship service.  Some are joyful and fun.  Some are thoughtful and profound.  Some are, it must be said, a little routine. It’s like family dinner.  Sometimes, when the tomatoes are finally ripe, it’s homemade BLTs and vanilla milkshakes.  Sometimes it’s a hearty ragu.  Sometimes it’s broccoli and rice.  They all have their place – Christmas dinner and a simple warm soup in the winter – and in each of them God touches us … even, and perhaps especially, in the ordinary.

Today touched something profound.  Something of the vastness of God – and yet at the same time, the goodness of God.  Majesty and mystery.  Appropriate for this day when we speak of the One God, Father Son and Spirit.
