DISCIPLESHIP THOUGHT – 20 September 2020
This week I came across a preaching illustration by Principal Paul Jones of our Trinity College Queensland which is a prelude to our third and final sermon of the Joel Sermon Series.
In his book where do “We Go From Here: Chaos or Community”, Martin Luther King Jr, reminds us that every person lives in two realms simultaneously, the internal and the external. The internal realm includes ideas, art, literature, moral values, and religion.
The external realm includes the world of competition, conflict, manipulation and management. This so called real-world is often governed by arrogance and greed.
Dr King concludes, “Our problem today is that we have allowed the internal to become lost to…the external. We have allowed the means by which we live…to outdistance the ends for which we live”
Are we missing the Holy Roar from oppression to liberation?
