Not of this world?

Nov 1, 2018 | Megan Ramer, Sermons

King Solomon plays a deadly game of chicken, with an infant’s life at stake, and for this is he is called wise. Pastor Megan explores the anti-monarchy sentiment buried within this and other stories related to ancient Israel’s kings, and considers the rotten-to-the-core empires of our own day. What are Mennonites, traditionally “in but not of this world,” to do? Listen as she reflects on generational shifts in political engagement, doing ALL the things, and (like Jesus!) finding sustaining rhythms.

“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.” ~ E. B. White
