Lent 5, If Not Empire, Then What?
Readings: Psalm 119:9-16 and John 12:20-36
This next to last Sunday of Lent, and the last Sunday of preaching our series on “Empire: Being In the World But Not Of It,” I’m preaching “If Not Empire, Then What?” I hope to imagine with you what it might be for us to not ignore the Empire we live in, lest we be caught unaware, but what might it be to hold a vision, to live to standards where we can all thrive – where the deep in us responds to deep joy – where beloved community is realized.
