One Response to “Sacred?” Sermon by Gary W. Smith, Aug. 16, 2015

    After worship at Plymouth and listening to this sermon with it’s message about the sacredness all persons in the eyes of God, a friend and I looked for a nearby restaurant for a quick lunch (prior to the Bach concert). We drove down Nicollet Ave. and considered Mexican and Thai places before deciding that we would visit Mac Donald’s for a recognizable menu.
    When seated at a table I noted that some of the patrons most likely had not just been to church. They reminded me of what it might be like to be homeless, lost, and hungry. It was then that I recalled the question and answers of the day’s sermon “Sacred?”. The discovery of God’s people
    is possible in the here and now. I felt blessed to realize that I had encountered sacred moments and sacred people while dining at MacDonald’s.
