Sunday Sermon, The Rev. Elizabeth Blunt: “The Fruits of Love”

June 9, 2024

In a world rife with selfish ambition, Jesus invites us to a practice of spiritual discernment, preaches the Rev. Elizabeth Blunt, to learn a way of being that distinguishes between “things that are holy and life-giving and things that diminish and disintegrate.” How do we do that? We unplug and listen attentively together for the Spirit’s guidance, and we look for the fruits of love demonstrated in Jesus’s ministry: “Not harm, but health. Not division and discord, but wholeness — both for individuals and for the community. Not despair, but joy and praise.” As a child of God, Jesus’s motivation was not fame, fortune, or profit, but compassion.
