Sunday Sermon, The Rev. Michael A. Bird: "Agents of Healing: Christ’s Power and Our Presence"

July 18, 2021

In today’s Gospel we see the followers of Jesus identified for the first time not as “disciples,” but rather as “apostles.” This transition from student to messenger is one we too are invited to make, preaches the Rev. Michael Bird, and it requires three things of us: compassion, action, and rest. Only then can we, the body of Christ, become “agents of healing in a world that is so desperate for it.” The readings are 2 Samuel 7:1–14a; Psalm 89: 20–29; Ephesians 2:11–22; and Mark 6:30–34, 53–56
