Sermons on Song of Solomon

14th Sunday after Pentecost

I realized that in order to want this life, which I’m not in control of, of a life that leads me beyond the near and safe, a life which I now have, as your priest, which leads me into unchartered waters nearly daily, I need to love God deeply and trust that God desires a wholeness and an aliveness of life for me, which will only draw me into a deeper goodness. This means I need to first believe, know in the deepest part my heart, not just with my head, that God loves me, but also to know that I love God. Not just believe in God, nor just understand the doctrine of The Episcopal Church or comprehend that we each are God’s beloved, but actually to know God’s love and then to return that love, with a passion beyond my imagining.
