Pentecost 14 - Greg Johnston (9/15/19)

“The image of the Good Shepherd is a nice one, but it turns out that not all lost sheep want to be found. It seems nice in theory to be found; but in reality nobody wants to be found out. Nobody wants to have their deepest secrets and their most hidden thoughts discovered. Nobody wants to be exposed for who they really are. God, of course, has always already found us out. And yet God’s response is not the destruction promised in Jeremiah, but the joy revealed in Jesus.” Greg preaches on the parables of the lost sheep and the lost coin.
