Sermon Intro: I have a new appreciation for the Roman Catholic church these days and I give full credit to my son, Josh. Not only did Josh earn his master’s degree in sacred music from the esteemed Notre Dame University but he is also, as most of you know, employed full time now by the Good Shepard Catholic Church in Golden Valley, MN, as their director of music ministries. Some of you may not know that during his last year at Notre Dame, Josh made a well informed and heartfelt decision to become a card-carrying member of the Catholic church, a decision that his family supported one hundred percent.
We lean like plants lean toward a window, even though they may never have seen the sun. We lean, with longing hearts, toward God’s vision of the kingdom to come.The Rev. Martin Copenhaver
