Sunday Sermon, The Rev. Phillip A. Jackson: "God’s Gift Giving Economy"

November 14, 2021

Today we encounter the story of Hannah, a barren woman who prays to God for a child, promising to dedicate his life to God if God will only grant her this gift. We know now that Hannah’s prayers were answered and that this boy would later become the venerated prophet, Samuel. This story has much to teach us, preaches the Rev. Phillip Jackson, about thanksgiving, reversal, and the mighty power of a humble “nobody” who trusts in God. The readings are 1 Samuel 1:4–20; The Song of Hannah, Hebrews 10:11–14, 19–25; and Mark 13:1–8.
