We are advised, “in your anger, do not sin.” This is a tall order. There are so many reasons we feel angry, and many of them justified. Anger can be a motivator to take responsible action. But when does anger morph into an ongoing state that causes us to erupt at minor annoyances or to become generally irritable, frustrated or depressed? What is the role of anger in a life of faith? These themes were explored in a sermon I preached in 2003, but recent events in politics and my observation of the reactions of people around me brought the theme back to mind. This dusted-off and updated sermon will invite us to explore these themes once again and in light of our current situation.
